Brief Answer: No more periods, minimally invasive procedure Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Da vinci surgery is a newer technique in surgery, here smaller cuts and incisions are made compared to traditional procedures because the surgeons have special instruments which give them more flexibility. It is a wonderful technique and it is the best way to undergo hystrectomy Hystrectomy means removal of the uterus and uterus is required for a woman to have her periods. Since they are removing your uterus you will not be having periods anymore. Please discuss this with your doctor before you undergo this procedure I feel leaving the ovary is a good option too. You will have lesser hormonal imbalances if your ovaries are still present I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me. Regards
