Hysterectomy requirements?

I'm new to these forums, and therefore not too great at navigating them yet, so I apologize if this question has already been asked/answered elsewhere. Anyway, I'm just curious, are there any specific requirements for getting a hysterectomy? As in, do you have to be past a specific age or have an incredibly serious illness before you're considered as a candidate for it?

Re: Hysterectomy requirements?

Hi Kiyrah, there are so many reasons to have a hyst. If you have insurance (and want them to cover the bulk of the cost), then they will need some sort of documentation (test results, etc) that proves it is medically necessary. Have you discussed this with your doctor?

Re: Hysterectomy requirements?

No, I haven't talked to my doctor. I really really really hate doctors. But, it's probably not something I would be having done too soon. But, if it weren't for a life-threatening problem, would a doctor consider doing a hysterectomy on a woman under the age of say 30? For me, I'm still young, but I've decided that I do not want kids. And I know I may change my mind later, which is why I'm waiting a few years to see if my decision changes at all.
