What Is a Hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is a process in which a woman’s uterus is surgically removed. There is a variety of different kinds of surgeries available. In premenopausal, menopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women, hysterectomies can be a very common surgical option.

When Is a Hysterectomy Needed?

A hysterectomy is done to alleviate uterine prolapse, abnormal bleeding, gynecological cancer, chronic pelvic pain and uterine fibroids. Relieving uterine fibroids is the most typical reason for a hysterectomy. A uterine fibroid is a noncancerous growth that causes lengthened menstrual cycles as well as chronic back pain.

What Are the Different Kinds of Hysterectomy Surgeries?

A hysterectomy is when the uterus, ovaries and other adjacent organs are completely or partially removed. There are six different kinds of hysterectomy surgeries. A total hysterectomy is the complete removal of the uterus as well as the cervix. A partial hysterectomy is the removal of the upper part of the uterus, while the cervix and ovaries are not removed. An oophorectomy is when the ovaries are removed as well. If the fallopian tubes are removed, this is called a salpingectomy. The intersection of the two, where both the ovaries and tubes are taken out, is called a salpingo-oophorectomy. A radical hysterectomy is considered to be the most comprehensive surgery. This is when the ovaries, uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes are completely removed.

What Are the Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance After a Hysterectomy?

A woman will begin to feel menopause’s full effect directly after a hysterectomy. Severe hormonal imbalance is likely during this time. This uncomfortable transition for women can severely impact a woman’s physical and emotional health. In addition to recovering from the surgery, feeling the immediate effects of menopause all at once can be very difficult for women to get through. To make this transition bearable, many will consider hormone replacement therapy.

What Is BHRT?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is commonly referred to as BHRT. It involves hormones derived from plants that are molecularly identical to human. BioTE Medical provides BHRT in the form of pellets which allows for regular administration of hormone doses, unlike other supplements which can have a rollercoaster effect from inconsistent administration.

How May BHRT Be Able to Lessen the Effects of a Hysterectomy?

BHRT pellets may be able to replace hormones that are unavailable after a hysterectomy. Get answers to your questions about life after a hysterectomy today! Use our Find a Provider tool to locate the BioTE Medical provider nearest to you!
