As we mentioned in previous articles during the last stage of the menstrual cycle normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues growing somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period Sometime if the diseases are progressing with rapid page you doctor may suggest some types of hysterectomy. In this article, we will discuss types of hysterectomy.

I. Definition
Hysterectomy is a operation to remove the uterus by a gynecologist. Sometimes, the Fallopian tubes and the cervix also removed, if other abnormalities are found during the surgery. As the uterus is removed, the women will not be able to bear children. It also causes hormone imbalance, so the surgery is normally recommended for only a few specific circumstance such as caner, severe case of uterine endometriosis.

II. Types of hysterectomy
There are 4 types of hysterectomy:

1. Subtotal hysterectomy - This type of hysterectomy removes uterus but leaves the cervix intact. In this kind of operation, the risk of ongoing menstrual bleeding after surgery is high.

2. Total hysterectomy - Total hysterectomy is a more complex and lengthy hysterectomy. This type of hysterectomy removes both the uterus and the cervix. Study shows that women who have total hysterectomy are less likely to experience urinary or bowel problems after surgery. Most women undergoing hysterectomy have total hysterectomy.

3. Simple hysterectomy - A simple hysterectomy is the removal of uterus only medical procedure. This type of hysterectomy increases the risk of the same problem as in subtotal hysterectomy.

4. Radical hysterectomy - During a radical hysterectomy, the uterus, the cervix, the upper third of the vagina, supporting tissues and pelvic lymph nodes are removed. This type of surgical procedure is usually done in treating pelvic cancer.
