Do you think if the uterus was gone, the cervix would be more inclined to stay where it belonged? I had a hysterectomy at 42 and figured it would send me into menopause, because I had all the symptoms of PCOS except the cysts. I actually have a fairly regular cycle now?? If you keep your cervix, you will likely still have a spotty-type period. Apparently the tiny bits of uterine tissue attached to the remaining cervical tissue function as if the whole thing is there. According to my Dr., it does require an abdominal incision, because a vaginal incision will necessarily take out the cervix in order to get the uterus. In my case, my monster fibroids made a vaginal removal impossible anyway, so my desire to keep my cervix wasn't a problem.
