A hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of a woman's uterus.
What are the benefits of a hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is an operation that can treat several gynaecological conditions (conditions that affect your reproductive system).
Hysterectomies are performed for a variety of reasons, including treating cancer of the uterus, endometriosis, excessive bleeding which doesn't respond to hormone therapy, severe persistent pelvic pain, prolapsed uterus, fibroids, or relaxation of the uterus.
Is hysterectomy right for me?
There is more than one method of removing the uterus - vaginally, abdominally or laparoscopically. Your gynaecologist will advise you on the right procedure for you.
What happens during a hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of a woman's uterus. If you have your ovaries taken out as well as your womb, you’ll start to go through menopause immediately. A hysterectomy may cause the feeling of a loss of femininity, so it's important to understand the emotional changes you might experience.
