Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is the procedure for fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus removal. To perform this surgery, there is no need for any sort of external scar marks. Dr. C Vijay Kumar suggested the transmen combine this surgery with top & bottom surgery for better results. Here are the procedures with which it can be suggested:
Phalloplasty (specially metoidioplasty)
What are the major reasons to perform hysterectomy with gender surgery?
Here are some of the major reasons due to which hysterectomy is suggested by the doctor:
Increased risk of cervical cancer and pap test is not possible, then this procedure is suggested.
Abdominal pain is normal and getting severe the hysterectomy is suggested. This happens because of testosterone which starts putting tension on the ligaments and the muscles present near them. Moreover, it can lead to excess cramping.
If trans men are not able to practice sexual intercourse then also it is suggested. This way the risk of accidental pregnancy and transmitted disease will get lower.
The procedure allows the removal of the cystic fibroids and it works best for the endometriosis treatment. If a transmen reports bleeding, even then hysterectomy is suggested.
Hysterectomy can help align internal anatomy with external identity.
