What are the negative side effects of a hysterectomy?

Asked 3 years ago

Hello everyone, I'm busy researching different birth control methods, and I've come across a hysterectomy. It seems like a good way to go, but are there any disadvantages to having this surgery?

The danger of blood transfusion and blood loss

Damage to nearby structures such as the bladder, urethra, blood vessels, and nerves.

Clots of blood in the legs or lungs.


Anesthesia-related side effects

The following long-term pelvic floor effects of hysterectomy should be considered in surgical decision-making: pelvic organ prolapse, urine incontinence, bowel dysfunction, sexual function, and pelvic organ fistula formation.
