Removal of the uterus: health consequences
Effects of removal of the uterus (hysteroktomy): early and late period
It is customary to produce two basic types of operation: Removal of only the uterus without ovaries and removal with ovaries. Depending on whether the ovaries are left to the woman or not, the individual consequences will differ, but otherwise everything is identical.
With histo-keratomy, physicians are allocated early postoperative period and late. The early one lasts up to one month and is characterized by the following phenomena:
- uterine pain (should not last longer than 3 days after the operation);
- A small discharge of blood from the vagina during the entire early period;
- Small bleeding (permissible, but often does not occur);
- Dizziness, hormonal changes in the body (mainly occurs when the ovaries are removed).
All that is listed above is a perfectly permissible reaction of the body. There is also an undesirable reaction when it is extremely necessary to seek medical advice. Such manifestations should include:
- Swelling of the lower extremities;
- Long period of general weakness of the body;
- Problems with urination;
- Pain in lower abdomen lasting longer than 3 days;
- Severe discharge of blood with urine after 1 to 1.5 months after hysterectomy;
- Temperature 37 and above, which is held for several days in a row.
It is worth noting that the success of the operation andThe recovery period is much better for women who exactly fulfill all the instructions of their attending physician in preparation for surgery and maintain a positive psychological attitude.
For the late rehabilitation period (later1,5-2 months) is characterized by the adaptation of the organism to new conditions, the cessation of any manifestations as a result of the past operation intervention, the normalization of sexual functions.
Effects of the removal of the uterus for sexual activity
Contrary to popular belief that there is no sex withGirls who survived the removal of the uterus - this is not true. The only nuance - you can not make love in the first 1.5 - 2 months after surgery. Otherwise, there are no restrictions or barriers to an active sexual life. All nerve endings of the vagina and labia, the clitoris remain sensitive and the girls will not feel any difference between orgasm with the uterus and without it.
Serious and, perhaps, the only barrierThe lack of a normal sexual life, the attraction to the opposite sex can be the woman herself, who closes psychologically and experiences depression, inconvenience or imaginary discomfort when dealing with a partner.
There are also some positive moments in the sexualLife after removal of the uterus, and in everyday life. Of course, you will forget what menstruation is, and also you can not use contraception, you will not get pregnant, alas, it will not work (for some it's a plus, but for someone it's a minus).
The effects of removing the uterus along with the ovaries
Let us return to those "minor" differences. Women should remember that the ovary is a hormone-forming organ, and therefore its complete removal will affect the production of hormones. In order for the organism to be properly reconstructed and adapted, as a rule, doctors conduct hormone replacement therapy.
Life without a uterus does not end, remember thisDear ladies. A large number of people find this and their advantages. In any case, we will have to live on and it would be better to do this while being in high spirits, and not bringing ourselves tears and nervous exhaustion.
