The risks of hysterectomy for the majority of women are not something they have to be aware of and their hysterectomy will be a liberating experience.

Some other conditions may also re-occur, this might include, adhesion’s, pelvic inflammatory disease and endometriosis. These are probably because they are all triggered by oestrogen, which the body will continue to produce naturally if a woman retains the ovaries or if a woman takes HRT if her ovaries were removed. For all of these conditions, it is important to discuss with your doctor what treatment is available.
