What is a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus. It may involve removing the entire uterus or just a part of it. In some cases, the procedure may also include the removal of the cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. This surgery is a common gynecological procedure and can be performed for various medical reasons, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapse, chronic pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or cancer.
How do I Know if I Need a Hysterectomy?
Determining whether you need a hysterectomy involves a thorough evaluation by your gynecologist. Indications for this surgery include:
- Persistent pain or heavy bleeding that doesn’t respond to other treatments.
- Cancer of the uterus, cervix, ovaries, or endometrium.
- Uterine fibroids leading to pain, bleeding, or other problems.
- Endometriosis causing severe symptoms.
- Uterine prolapse.
