In brief: Bleeding & pain
Most hysterectomies are done when other methods fail to alleviate symptoms like abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain.
Enlarged uterus, fibroids, endometriosis, and adenomyosis are some common causes of those symptoms. Hysterectomis are also done for cancerous conditions and sometimes in conjunction with pelvic relaxation corrective surgery.
