Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
I have a few questions...
Are you using any estrogen?
Are you sexually active?
And, when you mean you had a Partial Hysterectomy - does this mean you STILL have your cervix (the reason I ask because Partial means different things)?
And, do you still have your ovaries?
I believe my uterus and cervix were removed.
and if you can answer the other questions too, that would be helpful...
Are you using Estrogen?
Do you have your ovaries?
Are you on a phone?
Yes I use an estrogen patch, I have ovaries, and am sexually active
Which patch and dosage?
And, have you always had normal PAP smears prior to your hysterectomy?
No but you may call
We are not allowed to call or use email

IT is for your protection

So, please try to answer the questions in this chat session
I have to follow the rules and any phone numbers or email you place here are automatically blocked so I can't see them anyway

It really is
I have helped Thousands of women through chatting here
Well let me try to tell you what I think is happening...
I do NOT think you need to worry because you do NOT have an uterus - so this means this is NOT a cancer....
So, what you have more than likely is due to Atrophy - thinning of the skin of the vagina - and hence you can have some small lacerations within your vagina and hence you will get bleeding, spotting and clots every once in awhile.
So, you can still use the patch for estrogen, but you might need to use an Estrogen Suppository such as the Vagifem Estrogen Suppository Twice per week
So, I would have your ob/gyn look at your vagina, and more than likely this is just due to minor lacerations within the vagina and then using the Vagifem will help you.
So, you do Not need to worry.
I hope this helps
