People undergo surgeries for different reasons, and most times it could be based on health issues. A woman may undergo a surgery to remove her womb, and it is called hysterectomy. The uterus is where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. It is also important to know that the uterus lining, is the source of a woman's menstrual blood. A woman may undergo hysterectomy to treat cancer or an infection. During this surgery, a doctor may decide to remove the entire uterus or part of it. The doctor may also remove the ovaries and the fallopian tubes, during the surgery.

It is important to know that when you undergo a hysterectomy, you will not be able to see your period and you won't get pregnant again. A woman may undergo a hysterectomy because of the following reasons:
1. A woman who has serious pelvic pain.
2. A woman whose private organ bleeding cannot be controlled.
3. A woman who has cancer of the cervix, uterus and ovaries.
4. A woman who has pelvic inflammatory disease, which is a serious infection of the reproductive organ.
5. A woman who has adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is a medical condition that causes the inner lining of the womb, to grow into muscles of the womb.

There are different types of hysterectomy and they include the following:

This involves removing only a part of a woman's womb. The cervix may still be intact after the surgery.
2. Total hysterectomy
This involves removing the whole womb including the cervix during the surgery.
3. Hysterectomy and Salpingo-oophorectomy
During this surgery, the doctor removes the uterus with one or both of a woman's ovaries and fallopian tubes. A woman may need hormone replacement therapy, if both of her ovaries are removed.
