Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Thank you for your response, I understand that not everything on the internet is
necsssarily true, so that is why I wanted a second expert consultation. After reading
your response, that prompts a few more questions. Approximately how thick is
the "wall" that is now at the end of the vagina since the cervix is no longer there ?
Since you say the length is not affected, does that mean the end of the cervix was
left in place to help form the wall or are you saying there is vaginal tissue that overlaps
with the cervix which is used to form the wall ?
Re the hrt, I was considering more than estrogen in order to have my body function as
it did before the hysterectomy. I don't want all the bad side effects including weight
gain, hair loss, depression, anxiety, vaginal dryness, etc that can occur. I understand
there are pills to insert in the vagina to help counteract the dryness. Is that accurate ?
Does that happen because the cervix is no longer there to produce fluids or is that
a result of the lack of hormones ?
I appreciate you answering these related questions.
