At Advanced Women's Healthcare in Bloomington, IL, our doctors may recommend a hysterectomy as a first line of treatment for a few reasons. For example, if you experience chronically unwell, exhausted, fatigued, or have unexplained weight loss, we encourage visiting one of our board-certified physicians. We also promote seeking attention for abdominal pain, bloating, urinary discomfort or incontinence, pelvic pain, pressure, painful intercourse, or vaginal itching and discharge. Please don't ignore these symptoms, as they may be one of the reasons to consider a hysterectomy.
When Is A Hysterectomy Necessary?
Our doctors may advise a hysterectomy for fibroids which are benign growths forming in the muscles lining your uterus, or for polyps on the uterine inner wall. Endometriosis, where uterine tissues extend into pelvic organs; bleeding abnormalities, or when uterine lining develops into the muscular layer, can benefit from this procedure. These conditions can increase your risk for gynecological cancers such as uterine or cervical cancer. They also cause symptoms of extreme pelvic pain and discomfort, cramping, and heavy bleeding. If you and our doctor decide that a hysterectomy is necessary, we offer several different types that our doctor can discuss in detail during your initial consultation. For women who do need a hysterectomy in Bloomington, IL, our practice offers mental health services to support the diagnosis and healing process.
Our doctors only recommend a hysterectomy, when necessary because you can't get pregnant after having one. Consult our Advanced Women's Healthcare in Blooming, IL doctors if you have concerns about any of the issues above.
