Menstrual disorders affect every one in five women. There are many physical and lifestyle factors that increase the likelihood of menstrual disorders including fluctuating hormones, stress and extreme body mass index. Painful cramps, heavy bleeding, abnormalities and irregularities in the menstrual cycle are a few of the menstrual disorder symptoms.
What is PCOD?
Polycystic Ovary Disease/Syndrome is a common condition caused by hormonal imbalance. PCOD is a condition where ovaries produce immature or partially mature eggs. PCOS is a severe form of PCOD, and is a metabolic disorder. It can lead to ovaries not producing eggs. Since PCOS is associated with obesity and increased insulin resistance, if unattended, it can increase the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and other conditions.
A hysterectomy is a procedure to remove the uterus. There are three different types of hysterectomy:
- Radical hysterectomy - Removal of uterus, cervix, and part of the vagina
- Total hysterectomy - Removal of uterus and cervix
- Partial hysterectomy - Removal of the uterus
A hysterectomy is performed if:
- Tumour is found on the uterus, ovary, cervix or endometrium;
- Abnormalities in endometriosis
- Uterus prolapses and falls down into the vagina
- There is chronic pain in the uterus
- Aaginal bleeding is severe and abnormal
Preparing for Surgery
The preparation of surgery varies depending on the hysterectomy to be performed. Some of the common preparations include blood tests and cleaning up the bowel before surgery. Post-surgery care is equally crucial. Apart from occasional pain and discomfort, bleeding and vaginal discharge will occur for several weeks. Thus, it is important to stock up on sanitary pads and rest well.
