Some symptoms associated with uterine problems respond to medications or other non-surgical treatments, but some do not. Women with severe symptoms that affect their daily lives often benefit from hysterectomy when other treatments have proven ineffective. A recent study conducted at Harvard found that most women who had a hysterectomy due to moderate and severe symptoms were "very satisfied" with the results and noted an improvement in their quality of life.
