August 29th will be four years since my hysterectomy and I still will have an occosasional bleeding. It has no correlation with intercorse. Just out of the blue. I have been to the doctor for this once and he said it was due to dryness. About a week before and a week or so after I find myself more depressed. Do you think it is more hormonal? If I have no parts should I bleed at all?
It is very important that your gynecologist ascertain the origin of bleeding immediately. If your ovaries were removed along with the uterus during the hyserectomy... then a lack of hormones can cause vaginal dryness, greater vulnerability for vaginal infections, and occasional vaginal bleedings. First, however, your gynecologist must exclude the possible presence of tumors.
