What is a hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy refers to a surgery wherein the uterus is removed. However, there are several kinds of hysterectomy surgeries. A hysterectomy is a very common surgery in premenopausal, menopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women.

When is a hysterectomy needed?

A hysterectomy is done to alleviate uterine fibroids, chronic pelvic pain, gynecologic cancer, abnormal bleeding and uterine prolapse. The most common reason for a hysterectomy is to resolve the issue of uterine fibroids, which is when the uterus produces noncancerous growths that cause low back pain and prolonged menstrual cycles.

What are the different kinds of hysterectomy surgeries?

A hysterectomy involves complete or partial removal of the uterus, ovaries and other adjacent organs. There are six different kinds of hysterectomy surgeries. The most comprehensive is a surgery called a radical hysterectomy. This involves complete removal of ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix and uterus. A total hysterectomy is when the uterus is removed as well as the cervix. A partial hysterectomy is when the upper part of the uterus is removed but the cervix and ovaries are left in place. When a woman’s ovaries are removed, this is called an oophorectomy. If the fallopian tubes are removed, this is called a salpingectomy. If both the fallopian tubes and ovaries are removed, this is called a salpingo-oophorectomy.

What are the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance after a hysterectomy?

After a hysterectomy, a woman will immediately feel the full effects of menopause which implies severe hormonal imbalance. This is rarely a comfortable transition for women and can have extreme physical and emotional side effects. The effects of sudden menopause in addition to recovering from the surgery can be very challenging for women to get through on their own and many will consider hormone replacement therapy to make the transition a little more tolerable.
