Hysterectomy is one of the most frequent gynecological interventions. A hysterectomy is almost always necessary if cervical cancer is diagnosed o uterus cancer and is generally recommended if there is ovarian cancer.


However, most hysterectomies are performed on women who do not have cancer, but have so much trouble with bleeding or pain from the uterus that they want surgery. In such cases, a hysterectomy is only suitable for women who do not wish to have children in the future.


A hysterectomy is generally a valid option for women with fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease o heavy periods no explanation. If a woman has prolapse of uterus (partial or total descent and exit of the uterus through the vagina) a hysterectomy can be performed as part of the prolapse repair operation. A special case is the hysterectomy that urgently needs to be performed after a normal delivery o Caesarean section due to the complications, generally hemorrhagic, that sometimes arise.

The most frequent indication for hysterectomy is for uterus with fibroids (myomatous).
