Problems with any of the reproductive organs can disrupt your cycle, cause symptoms, or threaten your health. Some of the most common problems are shown below. A hysterectomy may also be done for other reasons.
Planning Your Treatment
After going over the results of your exam and any tests, you and your doctor will make a treatment plan. Options may include hysterectomy by itself or along with other treatments. As you create the plan, your doctor may discuss the following questions with you:
- How severe is your problem?
- Do you want to have children?
- Should the ovaries be removed too?
