Unsure: Many omen have a retroverted uterus. That in itself is not a reason for hysterectomy. However, there are a number of appropriate indications for hysterectomy including bleeding that doesn't respond to medical management, prolapse of the vagina or uterus, painful periods, endometriosis, etc. Your gynecologist will be able to help you decide if your best treatment option is a hysterectomy.
