Information for Patients


A hysterectomy is surgery to remove a woman's uterus or womb. The uterus is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. After a hysterectomy, you no longer have menstrual periods and can't become pregnant. Sometimes the surgery also removes the ovaries and fallopian tubes. If you have both ovaries taken out, you will enter menopause.

Your health care provider might recommend a hysterectomy if you have

  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis that hasn't been cured by medicine or surgery
  • Uterine prolapse - when the uterus drops into the vagina
  • Cancer of the uterine, cervix, or ovaries
  • Vaginal bleeding that persists despite treatment
  • Chronic pelvic pain, as a last resort
