“…16 Thus, the situations and complaints relating to the period prior to the hysterectomy brought the women to accept the recommendation and to make the subsequent decision to perform the surgery, which is visualized with the potential of resolution faced with the presence of signs and symptoms experienced in the woman's quotidian. [4][5]8 The body is endowed with values, beliefs and meanings that are transmitted to the woman by people who conduct her socialization process. Even though, for the women in this study, this body references the social role of the woman, a fact which justifies the sexual and reproductive attribute linked to womb, it is clear that, when this body is sick, the universe of meanings assigned to it can be deconstructed, so that the woman is situated in a way that motivates her or not to perform a specific social action, such as hysterectomy.…”

“…It may have negative implications for their lives, often related to the social construct of attributes given to the uterus, when they find themselves deprived of this organ. 5 Conversely, such surgery can also be considered by women as a predictor of positive implications, generally linked to the absence of typical symptoms of the underlying disease that led to the recommendation and performance of the surgery. 4 It must be considered that the social and cultural universe in which the women are immersed can greatly influence their experiences, when hysterectomized.…”

“…Atualmente, as indicações mais frequentes são para doenças benignas, ao passo que as indicações para doenças malignas representam em torno de 10% (3) . O estudo da histerectomia requer uma abordagem mais ampla, uma vez que é um procedimento frequentemente realizado, e que gera no universo feminino dúvidas relacionadas a mitos como: "ficar oca", "ser menos mulher por causa da ausência do útero" e "não ter mais orgasmos", as quais repercutem na vida da mulher tanto biológica quanto psicologicamente, pois, além de sua função biológica, o útero é um órgão associado à reprodução e socialmente vinculado à feminilidade e à sexualidade, de modo que sua extirpação, além de constituir-se em ato agressivo e mutilante, interfere tanto na expressão da sexualidade feminina quanto em sua imagem corporal e sua vida social (4) . Desta forma, faz-se necessário que os profissionais de saúde que atuam na área de assistência à mulher em processo de histerectomia adquiram conhecimentos e não se limitem a intervenções baseadas exclusivamente nas dimensões biológicas (5) , mas considerem todo o cotidiano da mulher.…”

“…Essa situação está relacionada ao processo psíquico de construção de mitos, os quais estão ligados à identidade social de gênero e à falta de conhecimento sobre o corpo, os órgãos e suas funções (7) . Por outro lado, é fundamental enfatizar que, para algumas mulheres, muitas vezes a histerectomia constitui a solução de um problema, pois proporciona o alívio dos sintomas decorrentes da patologia -na maioria dos casos, os miomas (4) . Diante dessa problemática na vida das mulheres que se submetem à histerectomia e seus sentimentos e saberes em relação a este procedimento cirúrgico, a presente investigação traz a seguinte questão norteadora: "Quais as repercussões para a saúde sexual e reprodutiva da mulher submetida à histerectomia".…”
