cervical stenosis, cervix scarred shut

has anyone been diagnosed with cervical stenosis?  I got it from having a cone biopsy 2 years ago.  I was on the depo shot so I wasn't getting any periods, but then i got severe abdominal pain and had to have surgery.  That's when they noticed my cervix was scarred shut.   It reclosed after the surgery 3 months ago.  I am seeing a new dr soon, but i am confused.  I haven't been able to evacuate menstrual fluid for the past two months.  Anyone have any info?

Thank you so much this gives me some hope.  I had a cone biopsy age 20 a creep drugged my drink at a party age 19 caught HPV (wart) virus from him attacked cells in my cervix turning them cancerous in 12 months first smear ever was really bad trip to gynae revealed CIN II CIN III sighted very shocked.  Never realised I had Stenosis at all until last week even at my HSG the gynae didn't click even though he had great difficulty getting it in there 12 months later I have my diagnosis must say I am more than slightly annoyed I had my cone biopsy done age 20 now age 38 why was this not the firs thing they considered way back at age 35 when I had not conceived after 6 months they had all the evidence just feel so angry it has taken 3 years to get this investigative surgery and diagnosis.  I can still have my period although they have told me my cervix is as small as a strand of my hair.  I got pregnant and miscarried 4 years ago would ot stop bleeding D & C had to follow very certain my cervix was further scarred by this operation.  Gynae has done a laproscopy was also supposed to do a hysteroscopy at the same time read operation notes OMG they almost completely violated me trying to get the thin tube and camera in there but failed :'-( Reading this is kind of freaking me about wahts going in in my womb also got diagnosed with an anteverted uterus periods have nto been normal since my D & C 4 years ago dark brown and thick was never like that lots of old blood.  Only get decent bleed and red blood maybe every 2nd - 3rd month now only lasts 2 -3 days and not 4 - 5 like it used to.  My pap smears may have been inaccurate since age 20 who would know hardly have any cervix left.... getting very scared as to what else they could find hidden in there... laser sounds like a great idea should be able to get pregnant naturally if I do this tubes ovaries and eggs good will discuss this page with my gynae thank you all so much for telling me what they wouldn't tell me I don't think any of them want to be the bearer of bad news my fertility specialist is on holiday for another month and they left me hanging none brave enough to be the one to break it to me.  I am so glad I found this I had done other searches through the net and found nothing this is what I really needed to see thank you all so much :-)

My Name is Lyn, I am 47years of age.  Been having regular pap smears, last one was aug 2011, went last Wednesday only to find out that my cervix is scarred closed.  Dr said it is caused by infection, or procedure.  I have had neither of these.  If anyone can shed any light on this please, I am worried about Cancer.

Hi i am hoping some one here can help me,
I have suffering with lots of pulling pains and cramps for a while BUT this week (Thursday) the pains got so bad its waking me in my sleep i went to the doctors who sent me straight to the gyno department the same day. After many internals and scans i was told that my cervix is closed, they can't make out if its blocked or stitched and that i have been having periods but because of the cervix being closed its just sitting there. (not had period for 2 years as on mini pill and thought i was a lucky one). I have been told i will need to be put asleep while they operate and that its not a simple procedure and asked questions like do i plan to have any more children!? WHY? any way and that they will sent me a letter with a date for my op and that  it will be within this month. I am scared and very confused as i don't understand how this has happened! Has this happened to anyone? And if so what happens in the operation? Is it a speedy recovery for me?

You really need to ask very specific direct questions like what is the name of the procedure/surgery?, what exactly did you see? What exactly will you do to me during procedure/surgery? Tell doctor you want details. Its your body you can ask any and all questions and with specific answers! Good luck and God bless. Don't let them touch you unless you know exactly what will be done un you and don't sign anything unless you know exactly what you will have done and details! Ok?
I had a cold cone biopsy November 2007 and my tubes tied so I stopped depo after being on it for 6+ years with no periods. Cervix healed like normal (I thought) until July I started having the most sharp intense pain in the lower stomach/pelvic area. To the point I couldn’t sit still I had to walk constantly. X-ray showed nothing so I had a ct scan done. Doctor said he’d never seen my results before but my uterus was filled with fluid and I needed to see my obgyn ASAP. The next day I had a vaginal ultrasound done where they found my cervix was scarred shut from the biopsy and 2-4 months of blood was in my uterus from my period returning. She tried to dialate my cervix in the office but that was useless. I was in surgery later the same day to cut my cervix open and she said it was the nastiest operation she ever did when the blood came pouring out. More of my cervix was removed to ensure it didn’t happen again. I can’t understand how I didn’t get toxic shock syndrome and sepsis.
wow!  That's amazing.  I'm glad you are okay now!

Margie, tank you for your answer, but I don't have kids and I do want to have and this is not a way for me so I really want to find a solution if any doctor can build the canal again.

My cervical scarring completely covered my cervix to the point where they couldn't find it.  The inability for menstrual blood to pass out meant that I was in awful monthly pain.  I had a hysterectomy to resolve it as no dilatation worked and I wasn't planning anymore kids.  I haven't looked back.  I hope things work out for you.
