What Is a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy is a procedure in which a woman’s uterus is surgically removed. In premenopausal, menopausal, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal women, hysterectomies have been a common surgical option.
When Is a Hysterectomy Needed?
A hysterectomy may be necessary to alleviate uterine prolapse, abnormal bleeding, gynecological cancer, chronic pelvic discomfort, uterine fibroids, and other conditions. Relieving uterine fibroids is the most typical reason for a hysterectomy. A uterine fibroid is a noncancerous growth that causes lengthened menstrual cycles as well as back discomfort. Hormone therapy may help relieve the symptoms after surgery. Contact a Biote Certified Provider to learn more about our hormone therapy options for possible hysterectomy relief.*
What Happens During a Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy involves the uterus, ovaries, and other adjacent organs being completely or partially removed. There are six different kinds of hysterectomy surgeries, depending on which organs are removed. Regardless of the type of hysterectomy performed, a patient will likely feel side effects from no longer being able to fully produce hormones on their own. The Biote Method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help relieve some of the post-surgery symptoms.
What Are the Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance After a Hysterectomy?
Severe hormonal imbalance is likely after a hysterectomy. This uncomfortable transition for women can impact a woman’s physical and emotional health. After a hysterectomy, the symptoms of hormonal imbalance include hot flashes, night sweats, light bleeding and discharge, and vaginal dryness.*
