Hi Doc
I am a 45 yr old lady and I have been experiencing extremely painful periods and ovulation circles. My Gynae has recommended that I have my Uterus removed. I would like to know if removing my unterus would stop all the pains that I am presently experiencing as well as what is the downside of having my uterus removed?
Thank you for your assistance

What is the diagnosis? I can't tell whether a hysterectomy will help without knowing whpat the problem is.
