Question: I have been told that I need to have a subtotal hysterectomy for painful heavy periods. I am fine about this now but am worried that I read that you can still have periods which makes me wonder what’s the point? Can you help with any advice?
Our Answer: You won’t have periods as such, but there some women do experience a small amount of breakthrough bleeding from the cervix on a monthly basis, which certainly won’t be anything like a normal period.
You may also experience some bleeding if you have granulation at the site of the internal wounds.
