What are possible side effects and complications of LAVH surgery?

After a hysterectomy, you will no longer have your period, and you won’t be able to get pregnant. Early menopause is possible. Other complications and side effects of a hysterectomy include fever and infection, bleeding, blood clots, obstruction of the bowels, and nerve or tissue damage. Hysterectomy could also cause a fistula, which is an abnormal connection between organs. Long-term effects could include vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive, and pain during sex.
