A hysterectomy is an operation / surgery to remove the uterus from a woman’s body. There may be several different reasons why uterus may have to be removed apart from cancerous ones. A good urologist or urogynecologist / urogynaecologist will suggest hysterectomy when he/she has run out of all available treatment options for your problem.
Non-cancerous reasons for hysterectomy include:
- Uterine Fibroids that hurt, bleed and cause other problems.
- Prolapse – Uterine Prolapse is a condition when the uterus slides from it’s actual position into the vaginal canal. This too occurs for different reasons including weak muscles around the uterus.
- Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding
- Chronic Pelvic Pain
- Adenomyosis – thickening of the uterus
