Whole uterus only: A total (complete) hysterectomy is the removal of the whole uterus(body of the uterus as well as the cervix).A partial (or supracervical) hysterectomy removes part of the uterus and leaves the cervix in place.The removal of the tubes and ovaries is a separate procedure (salpingectomy and oophorectomy respectively). Removing everything is a total hysterectomy and a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. ...Read more

Hysteroscopic resection of fibroids removal for pregnancy. Does it improve fertility after removal of small or large uterine fiborids? in all women.

Hysteroscopic resection of fibroids removal for pregnancy.  Does it improve fertility after removal of small or large uterine fiborids? in all women.

Depends on location: if the fibroids is significantly distorting the endometrial cavity, it will be of benefit (assuming all other factors are normal). Fibroids outside of the endometrial cavity or that are pedunculated, may not reduce your chances of getting pregnant and may not be neccessary to remove them. Speak to your GYN who can discuss this further with you . Best wishes ...Read more

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more

Are Pap tests still needed after removal of the uterus (hysterectomy)?

Are Pap tests still needed after removal of the uterus (hysterectomy)?

It depends: A Pap test, also called a Pap smear, is a routine screening test for early diagnosis of cervical cancer. If you had a partial hysterectomy — when the uterus is removed but the lower end of the uterus (cervix) remains — your health care provider will likely recommend continued Pap tests. Similarly, if you had a partial hysterectomy or a total hysterectomy — when both the uterus and cervix are removed — for a cancerous or precancerous condition, regular Pap tests are still recommended as an early detection tool to monitor for a new cancer or precancerous change. You can stop having Pap tests, however, if you had a total hysterectomy for a noncancerous condition. Your age matters, too. If you're unsure whether you still need Pap tests, discuss with your doctor what's best for you. ...Read more

What part of uterus is removed in partial hysterectomy?

What part of uterus is removed in partial hysterectomy?

Whats partial mean?: As a physician, a hysterectomy is removal of the uterus and it can be total or subtotal or sometimes called supracervical. A subtotal or supracervical hysterectomy removes the body of the uterus and a small part of the cervix. However, often times non-medical people call a partial hysterectomy total removal of the uterus but not removing the ovaries. ...Read more

Do lap surgery for removal of endometriosis cysts also lowers the amh level from ovaries?

Do lap surgery for removal of endometriosis cysts also lowers the amh level from ovaries?

Very possible: Removing endometriomas can decrease the ovarian reserve and lower amh. The surgery can remove more ovarian tissue containing eggs than intended. We are much more cautious about surgery today. Best wishes. ...Read more

Would never being pregnant determine the method of hysterectomy surgery for removal of uterus, tubes and ovary. Reason for surgery is thick lining.

Would never being pregnant determine the method of hysterectomy surgery for removal of uterus, tubes and ovary. Reason for surgery is thick lining.

One factor: The number of pregnancies is one factor in determining the route of surgery. The patient’s size, the size of the uterus, the size of the vagina, the amount of uterine prolapse, previous surgeries, medical problems, surgeon preference, surgeon skin and experience are other a few of the other factors. Each case must be evaluated individually to determine the best surgical approach. ...Read more

How do you know if ovaries are getting blood supply after hysterectomy (removal of uterus, cervix, tubes, and removal of cysts on each ovary but able to save the ovaries)?

How do you know if ovaries are getting blood supply after hysterectomy (removal of uterus, cervix, tubes, and removal of cysts on each ovary but able to save the ovaries)?

Ovaries have dual: blood flow from both from the uterus and from the ovarian artery which is a branch directly off the aorta. So when you remove tubes and uterus, the ovary still gets flow from its second blood source. I wish you a speedy recovery from your surgery and hope your ovaries live a quiet, cyst-free existence from now on. ...Read more

Could removal of endometrial polyp cause piercing of the uterus and hence infertility?

It's possible: But not at all likely. Even if your uterus was perforated by hysteroscopy, it wouldn't usually lead to infertility (as long as it was managed.). ...Read more

Will PCOS hormonal imbalances end after surgical removal of uterus, ovaries/tubes?

Will PCOS hormonal imbalances end after surgical removal of uterus, ovaries/tubes?

Well yes, but...: If the ovaries are removed, then you'll no longer be producing much female sex hormone at all, and you'd then essentially enter menopause unless hormones are replaced in pill form. Daily hormone replacement pills keep levels very stable which would generally end the sorts of symptoms you get from abnormal hormone fluctuation in PCOS. Though it's far too aggressive of a treatment just for PCOS. ...Read more
