Bleeding After a Hysterectomy?

After a hysterectomy there is no uterus, and women stop having menstrual periods. Irritation of the lining of the vagina can produce some slightly pink discharge, but actual blood passage is not the norm. However, it's not uncommon to develop a small nub of tissue where the stitches repaired the top of the vagina. This is called granulation tissue, it is not cancerous, it can bleed, especially with exercise and sex,; and what is more important is is easily treated. So be sure to come in to your gyno and be evaluated for this if you have had bleeding after a hysterectomy.
