Washington: Having a hysterectomy with or without ovary removal in mid-life does not increase a woman`s risk of cardiovascular disease compared to women who reach natural menopause, a new study has revealed."Middle-aged women who are considering hysterectomy should be encouraged because our results suggest that increased levels of cardiovascular risk factors are not any more likely after hysterectomy relative to after natural menopause," Karen A. Matthews, PhD, lead author of the study and a distinguished professor of psychiatry and professor of epidemiology and psychology at the University of Pittsburgh, said.
