About The Hysterectomy Survey
By the age of 60 one in three women will have had a hysterectomy. Hysterectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures for a range of women’s health conditions. It is becoming increasingly prevalent in younger women for:
- Pregnancy complications
For some conditions, hysterectomy works wonders while for other conditions, it is only nominally successful. The purpose of the hysterectomy survey is to learn more about why hysterectomy works for some women and not others. We’d also like to learn more about the long term health affects of hysterectomy – does a woman who has had a hysterectomy have a higher or lower risk of other health conditions?
Who Should Take the Hysterectomy Survey
Any woman who has had a hysterectomy. It does not matter if you had the hysterectomy yesterday, a month ago or 20 years ago, we want to hear from you.
Why Should I Take the Hysterectomy Survey?
There are sparsely few data in women’s health. Women’s health research has never been a national priority – ever. In fact, a recent report found that only 30% of Ob/Gyn Clinical Practice Guidelines were based on evidence. That means for 70% of all Ob/Gyn medical procedures there are no data or evidence. We find that unacceptable, you should too. Your data will help change that and may save a life.
How Long Does the Hysterectomy Survey Take?
The survey takes only 10-15 minutes to complete.
Is the Survey Anonymous and Secure?
Yes. We do not collect personal identifying information and the survey is hosted with SSL encryption using a verisign certificate Version 3, 128 bit encryption.
How Will the Data be Used?
To inform future research and women’s health decision-making.
