Hysterectomy may result in premature ovarian failure

August 23, 2016

Women who underwent hysterectomy with ovary preservation have lower levels of serum anti-Müllerian hormone, which may affect ovarian function, compared with women who have not undergone hysterectomy, according to researchers.

Sujoy Ghosh, MD, DM, FRCP, of the department of endocrinology and metabolism at the Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education & Research in West Bengal, India, and colleagues evaluated 37 women who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy between 2010 and 2014 with preservation of at least one ovary (cases) and 52 women with normal menstrual cycle (controls) to determine the effect of total abdominal hysterectomy on ovarian function. The study was conducted between January and August 2015.
