The uterus is a hormone responsive sex organ that supports the bladder and the bowel. There is no age or time in a woman's life that the uterus no longer functions. In addition to uterine contractions that occur with orgasm, and it's structural functions, the uterus produces substances that provide cardiovascular protection. When the uterus is removed the risk of heart disease is 3X greater than it is in intact women, and when the ovaries are removed it's 7X greater.
