Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I was completely sedated after delivery. After that, I experienced severe health problems such as dehydration, diabetes, hormonal problems, thyroid problems, and fatigue. I resolved most of the problems except thyroid hormone problems. After delivery, I had gauze but no menstrual bleeding, and also had no abdominal incisions. My doctor informed me that because he cannot see the uterus, I must undergo many hormone tests.

Is it possible that they performed a vaginal hysterectomy after delivery?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query,

You haven't had a period in years after having a vaginal delivery?

If it has been years that you did not have menstrual period, then you are already in menopause state. In fact, menopause is defined as the absence of periods for one year. So, this is the reason why several medical problems have developed. However, in general, estrogen, which has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system, was essentially nonexistent during menopause. I cannot tell whether they performed the hysterectomy at that time, but you might be able to find out by requesting the medical records. I also suggest you have a computed tomography scan or magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvic area for confirmation.

Please follow up for further assistances.

Thank you.
