post menapause cervix closed problem
Dignity posted:
Dear Doctor,

I am 65 and have been taking bioidentical estrogen and progesterone for 2 years. In 2/2013, I started T.S. Wiley protocal for bio-identicals. After 3 weeks, I started cramping and in 7 weeks the cramps became unbearable. My Ob-gyn said my cervix was shut tight, did an ultrasound and found a large blood clot. She scheduled a D and C for 4/11/2013. on 4/10/2013, I passed a lot of blood clots. She said my surgery was successful and there was no cancer. I had a normal pap smear in 10/2012. Is it correct that a pap smear is done through the cervix?

I am scheduled for another ultrasound to make sure my cervix is still opened on 5/27/13 BEFORE I start back on the bioidenticals.

How can I be sure my cervix will remain open for menstruation? I don't ever want to go through all that pain again.

The bio-identicals did completely reverse my osteopenia and has allowed me to sleep and was helping urine incontinancy.

What should I do to keep my cervix open for menstruation? Will estrogen help?

It's been a nightmare.
