Hello, I would be happy to help.

1. What was the reason for the hysterectomy?

2. When did the pain begin?

3. Do you notice any vaginal discharge, itching, burning or odor?

I was being treated for some problems , if I remember right, cones, and I started bleeding, this was following my second natural childbirth. Huge clots, four blood transfusions over a week.
Pain started a week ago.
No discharge, slight burning.

Thank you for the followup information and I am sorry about the delay.

Given the prior hysterectomy, I believe that your current complaint is not related to the prior problems related to your uterus. In women who are postmenopausal, due to the lack of estrogen in their system, they are prone to vaginal infections and vaginal symptoms. One of the more common problems is called bacterial vaginosis. It is an alteration of the normal bacteria in the vagina. This is a likely explanation for what is going on. It is easily treated with a prescription medication called Metronidazole. Also, to prevent this in the future, you might benefit from some vaginal estrogen cream.

Please give me an update and tell me what you think of the answer so far.
