Planning your treatment

After going over the results of your exam and any tests, you and your doctor will make a treatment plan. Options may include hysterectomy by itself or along with other treatments. As you create the plan, your doctor may discuss the following questions with you:

  • How severe is your problem?

  • Do you want to have children?

  • Should the tubes or ovaries be removed too?

  • Should the hysterectomy be done abdominally, laparoscopically, or vaginally?
