What are the problems associated with the removal of the uterus at early age, say between 35 – 40 yrs of age?
When we advise hysterectomy it is for the permanent relief of the suffering which fails to respond to the conservative line of treatment. Uterus in the broad sense has only two physiological functions, to serve as an organ for harboring a fetus during pregnancy and secondly for the cyclical menstruation. If the uterus is removed, then one will not get menses and would not conceive (both probably not desirous at this stage). Besides these there are no other changes in the functions of the body.
