Hysterectomy - Information, specialists, frequent questions.

Is a major surgical procedure to remove the uterus.

A hysterectomy may be total or complete, that is removing the whole uterus and the cervix;  it may be sub-total or partial, that is removing the uterus but leaving the cervix in place; and radical when it removes the uterus, the cervix, the upper part of the vagina and supporting tissues. Often one or both ovarian and fallopian tubes are removed at the same time a hysterectomy is done; this is called hysterectomy with salpingo-ooforectomy.

There are two ways to perform it: through a cut in the abdomen (abdominal hysterectomy) or in the vagina (vaginal hysterectomy). In addition, it can be laparoscopic assisted.

Hysterectomy may be recommended for several reasons including fibroms (myomas), endometriosis, uterine prolapse, abnormal uterine bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, cervical dysplasia and cancer.

I can't find a reason why you can not have a hysterectomy. However other alternatives could be very effective like ablation (Novasure device) with less risks.
