Hi,

Thanks for writing to us.


Yes, hysterectomy can be performed after miscarriage and pregnancy hormone will not affect your hysterectomy procedure. In fact, in some cases when abortion leads to complication like perforation of the uterus, hysterectomy is the only treatment.

It is advisable to plan the procedure at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query If you have further questions I will be happy to help.

Regards
Dr Richa

Hi,

In my opinion, if your ovary is absolutely normal, you should conserve them. Because when you conserve your ovary, your monthly period will not occur; but menopausal symptoms and hormonal deprivation do not occur immediately after hysterectomy since ovaries will maintain your hormonal level and you achieve menopause naturally. This is off course my opinion. Seek your gynecologist opinion before taking an informed decision.

Hope I have answered your query If you are satisfied with my answer kindly close the query and please rate the answer or If you have further query I am always there for your help.
