bleeding after intercourse, but had complete hysterectomy about 4 years ago??
nothing, not heavy bleeding.
Did you have your ovaries taken out as well and if so. Do you use estrogen?
yes a complete hysterectomy. I don't take any hormone medications.
You are probably suffering from atrophic vaginits which is thinning of the vaginal tissues. this can cause little tears in the tissue which can cause bleeding. A visit to your gynecologist and some vaginal estrogen therapy will usually take care of it. You should have an exam to rule out less likely things like vaginal cancer or a stitch that has eroded into the vagina.
ok, thank you. I have a yearly exam coming up in Feb. I will get an earlier appointment.
