Treatment Procedure for Hysterectomy
Our healthcare provider will explain the procedure in detail, including possible complications and side effects. In addition some tests also include:
1. Cervical cytology (Pap test), which detects the presence of abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer
2. Endometrial biopsy, which detects abnormal cells in the uterine lining or endometrial cancer
3. Pelvic ultrasound, which may show the size of uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps or ovarian cysts
A premenopausal (still having regular menstrual periods) woman whose uterine fibroids are causing bleeding but no pain is generally first offered medical therapy with hormones. Non-hormonal treatments are also available, such as tranexamic acid and more moderate surgical procedures, such as ablations (removal of the lining of the uterus).
If she still has significant bleeding that causes major impairment to her daily life, or the bleeding continues to cause anemia (low red blood cell count due to blood loss), and she has no abnormality on endometrial sampling, she may be considered for a Hysterectomy.
