Getting a Hysterectomy is a big decision. There are many reasons for getting one. Whether you are still just exploring options or have already decided that a hysterectomy is the best option for you there are a few things to be aware of before you decide, on the when and the where.

Types of Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is not just a single procedure. There are, in fact, several different types. It all depends on how much is actually removed during the procedure. The most common type of hysterectomy is a total hysterectomy. In this type of hysterectomy, both the uterus and cervix are removed. You can however just remove the uterus, or you may need to go further and remove ovaries, fallopian tubes, or other surrounding tissue. Which type of hysterectomy is right for you depends on your condition and reasons for having surgery. It should be a discussion you have with your gynaecologist.
