What Is a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a woman’s uterus. The uterus, also known as the womb, is where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. The uterine lining is the source of menstrual blood.
You may need a hysterectomy for many reasons. The surgery can be used to treat a number of chronic pain conditions as well as certain types of cancer and infections.
Causes of Hysterectomy
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Uncontrollable vaginal bleeding
- Cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries
- Fibroids, which are benign tumors that grow in the uterus
- Pelvic inflammatory disease, which is a serious infection of the reproductive organs
- Uterine prolapse, which occurs when the uterus drops through the cervix and protrudes from the vagina
- Endometriosis, which is a disorder in which the inner lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterine cavity, causing pain and bleeding
- Adenomyosis, which is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscles of the uterus
What Are the Risks of a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is considered to be a fairly safe procedure. As with all major surgeries, however, there are associated risks. Some people may have an adverse reaction to the anesthetic. There is also the risk of heavy bleeding and infection around the incision site.
Other risks include injury to surrounding tissues or organs, including the:
- blood vessels
How Is a Hysterectomy Performed?
A hysterectomy can be performed in several ways. All methods require a general or local anesthetic. A general anesthetic will put you to sleep throughout the procedure so that you don’t feel any pain. A local anesthetic will numb your body below the waistline, but you’ll remain awake during the surgery. This type of anesthetic will sometimes be combined with a sedative, which will help you feel sleepy and relaxed during the procedure.
During an abdominal hysterectomy, your doctor removes your uterus through a large cut in your abdomen. The incision may be vertical or horizontal. Both types of incisions tend to heal well and leave little scaring.
During a vaginal hysterectomy, your uterus is removed through a small incision made inside the vagina. There are no external cuts, so there won’t be any visible scars.
