    Hello

     

    It seems that some women with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease may opt to get a hysterectomy to get rid of this disease. 

     

    But here is what this women's health site has to say on this topic:

     

    "A hysterectomy removes the uterus (womb) and usually the cervix. A hysterectomy may reduce pelvic pain, and is likely to get rid of PID, but there is no guarantee. If the infection or scarring is outside of the womb, for example, a hysterectomy will be of no use."

     

    And too, here is some information about how some women continue to have pelvic pain after having a hysterectomy.

     

    I do think this is a question best answered by your doctor or gynecologist. 

     

    Hope this helps some.

    There is some information that a partial hysterectomy may still allow menstruation.

     

    Information at this site states in part: "...For women who have not yet reached menopause, having a hysterectomy means that menstruation will no longer occur, nor will pregnancy be possible..."

     

    You can go there and read a description of the type of hyseterectomies and other information.

     

    If you are having any problems, or uncertainties you should contact a doctor.
