Hysterectomy is a surgical method in which the uterus of a woman is removed. Sometimes, the ovaries and fallopian tubes are also removed. The uterus, also referred to as the womb, is where a baby grows inside their mother. Once a woman has had a hysterectomy, she will no longer menstruate and cannot become pregnant. Hysterectomy is indicated if you have uterine fibroids, endometriosis not cured by medicine or surgery, uterine prolapse, vaginal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, and cancer of the uterus/cervix or ovaries.
