A vaginal hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removal of the uterus through the vagina. It is a better alternative when compared to abdominal hysterectomy as the recovery period is shorter and the procedure will leave no scar on your abdomen. However, there are various factors that affect the procedure including the shape and size of the uterus and the reason behind the surgery. A vaginal hysterectomy can treat a number of gynaecological issues like uterine prolapse, fibroids, gynaecological cancer, adenomyosis and chronic pelvic pain, to name a few.
