What causes painful intercourse and vaginal bleeding after a total hysterectomy?

default
Posted on Mon, 23 Jan 2017
Question: I had a full hystotectomy 3.5 months ago (left my ovaries). I had sex the other night and it was painful and I bled during it. Afterwards the pain was so intense I couldn't walk. I ended up in the OR and needed emergency surgery. Why would this happen? Will I ever have normal comfortable sex again?

I want my money back!!!! You implied I would have an answer ASAP. NOT in 24 hours.

Brief Answer:
thank you so much for your question. I will do my best to help.

Detailed Answer:
I am so sorry that you are having such a difficult time having sex after your hysterectomy. I hope you don't mind if I ask you a few questions so I can better understand your problem. can you tell me what kind of emergency surgery you need and why? what did they tell you in the emergency room when they explained what happened when you had sex and why you needed surgery? also. did you have any problems with sex before the surgery? can you also tell me why you had the hysterectomy? I am sorry for asking so many questions, but this will really help me understand what is going on so we can figure this out.
