Hysterectomy and Endometriosis

Posted on March 16, 2018

Many women struggle to find the right medication or surgeries for their pain and other endometriosis symptoms. Sometimes women need to have a hysterectomy, which is a surgery to remove their uterus. In cases where women have a hysterectomy to treat endometriosis, surgeons may excise lesions and remove the ovaries (called an oophorectomy) at the same time.

On MyEndometriosisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with endometriosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Having a hysterectomy and its impact on endometriosis is one of the most frequent topics that members discuss.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about having a hysterectomy:

What made you decide to do a hysterectomy? How do you know if it's the best route to take?

I am wondering if anyone has any tips on what to take to the hospital or make sure to have at home for recovery?

Any sound advice on bringing the "spice" back after a hysterectomy?

For those who have had a hysterectomy could you share your experience?

Here are some conversations about having a hysterectomy:

I’m just wondering if any of you ladies have any recovery tips from a hysterectomy?

Thinking about just going through with a full hysterectomy but so scared of going through early menopause.

Nearly a year to the day since I had my hysterectomy and oophorectomy. I can’t believe how well I’m feeling.

I'm ready to get the hysterectomy over with, I'm in so much pain and I'm tired of the medication.
