Fluid filled cyst in uterus, sealed cervix

Posted by Debdeb @debdeb, Jul 31, 2016

I have either a fluid filled cyst, or a deposit, in my uterus. Gyn tried to perform biopsy, but my cervix is sealed. Now I have to have a D&C. I’m very frightened of what this is. I’m almost 52, and believe I’m post menopausal. Anyone have experience or heard of this.

Hi @debdeb. Did your gynecologist say that you have cervical stenosis? I found some information that may describe a “sealed cervix”. http://www.merckmanuals.com/home/women-s-health-issues/noncancerous-gynecologic-abnormalities/cervical-stenosis

This article by Mayo Clinic explains D&C (dilation and curettage), why it is done and what you can expect. http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/dilation-and-curettage/basics/definition/prc-20013836 A general anesthesia is given for the procedure, so you will be unconscious and will not feel any pain.

I certainly can understand your being frightened. What concerns you the most Deb? When are you going to have the D&C?

My main concern is what the fluid filled cyst is. It looks uncommon to have one in the uterus. I am post menopausal, and I had a endometrial ablation done in 2013. The actual procedure hasn’t been scheduled yet, waiting for the call. Might be a blip now, I received blood work results today , and my glucose is 104.
