  • My husband had a vasectomy five and a half years ago. I wouldn't mind having a hysterectomy, though.

  • I don't see anyone being nonchalant. I've had an endometrial ablation that is failing, and I would rather have one surgery to remove my uterus than go back every year or two to repeat my ablation. Why are you so concerned about other women's bodies?

  • none of the above... my mother had a hysterectomy when she was very young because she had endometriosis and the doctor said that since she couldn't use it it was best to take it all out to prevent the chance of cancer. she has had to take hormones ever since just to keep her body balanced. its not an easy or a good alternative if your healthy and don't need it for a medical reason.

  • I would love a hysterectomy but I have no reason to have one. I had a tubal and DH had a vasectomy. I am taking no chances! If I could only choose one, I would have chosen for me to get the tubal. I feel like it is more protection.

  • I"m not concerned about other womens bodies. I know some that got a hysterectomy just so they don't have to have periods anymore,that is all.

  • That's their choice. The reasoning only has to be valid to them. It's their body going through it.
