What are the possible side effects or risks associated with having a hysterectomy at the age of 27?
Surgical vs psycholo: Obviously there is risk of surgical complications such as bleeding/blood clot, infections etc. From the surgery, but there is a pyschological component to this.

No, probably not: If she had hysterectomy for dub caused by fibroids and if you're african-american, you are likely to also have fibroids. Even if this is the case, you can avoid surgery if you were to get fibroids and dub. If her dub was not fibroid-related much less so. There are better options for dub (fibroid and non fibroid-related) today that don't involve surgery and allow women to keep their uterus. ...Read more

What could be causing unexplained weight gain? 40 y/o female, post hysterectomy 1 year. Left ovaries. Could age and hyst be culprit?
Are ovaries working?: Are your ovaries still making sufficient estrogen post surgery? A FSH test can help you make that determination especially if you are having 'hot flashes".

Diet and exercise Rx is then needed, it's not the surgery. ...Read more

There would not be a minimum age - most women are going to recover more quickly and easily from an lavh than from an abdominal hysterectomy. One great benefit is the lower complication rate compared to abdominal or vaginal. ...Read more
