Here are some facts related to hysterectomy you should know:

Hysterectomy and its Types

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure done to remove a woman’s uterus. The uterus acts as the womb and is where a fetus develops. When you go through this procedure, the two main functionalities of the uterus stop to exist i.e.

  • You won’t be able to conceive after the procedure
  • Your monthly menstrual cycle stops

Hysterectomy can be 

Partial Hysterectomy: Only a portion of the uterus is removed leaving the cervix intact.

Total Hysterectomy: The uterus (with cervix) is removed totally.

Hysterectomy and Sapling- Oophorectomy: Your doctor removes the whole uterus along with either one or both the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.
