Hysterectomy Side EffectsWhat side effects might I experience following a hysterectomy?

Women report a variety of different side effects following a hysterectomy, some good and some bad. Your experience could depend on a number of factors, including the reason for your surgery, type of surgery, medical history, and current symptoms. In many cases, the pros will outweigh the cons, but there is always a chance of negative outcomes. But many negative side effects can be treated.

Here are some common side effects that you may experience:

  • Better quality of life
  • Complete transformation of life
  • Energy
  • More enjoyable sex
  • Less painful exercise
  • Greater physical, emotional, and mental health
  • New sheets and panties
  • No more anemia
  • No more fear of embarrassing accidents in public
  • No more backaches
  • No more birth control pills
  • No more bleeding or clots
  • No more cancer
  • No more missed days of work for period issues
  • No more pads stashed every where
  • No more pain meds
  • No more pelvic pain and pressure
  • No more prolapse
  • No more scheduling life and vacations around periods
  • No more uterine cramps
  • Renewed physical and inner strength
  • Sleeping better without having to get up to change a pad or urinate
  • Normal-sized stomach
  • White and light colored pants and skirts
