Hysterectomy, oophorectomy, and vaginectomy are surgical procedures often used in the context of gender affirmation, in addition to their application in treating medical conditions. These procedures can be essential parts of the transition process from female to male.

Hysterectomy involves the surgical removal of the uterus and can include the removal of the cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, depending on the patient’s needs. This procedure is often the first step in medical transition, as it eliminates the possibility of pregnancy and can help reduce the production of hormones that affect secondary sexual characteristics.

Oophorectomy entails the removal of the ovaries and sometimes the fallopian tubes, resulting in the cessation of menstruation and a reduction in estrogen levels. This can be particularly beneficial for transgender men who wish to minimize typical female sexual characteristics and the need for taking anti-estrogen medications.

Vaginectomy involves the removal of the vaginal canal. This procedure is usually performed when an individual does not wish to retain vaginal function and as part of creating male genitals, which may include the creation of a penis or scrotum in later stages of transition.

All these procedures require thorough consideration and planning. It is crucial for patients to consult in detail with their medical team to understand all aspects of the procedures, possible risks, and expected outcomes, as well as to receive adequate psychological support during the recovery process and adaptation to new physical conditions. These procedures play a key role not only in physical transformation but also in the psychological adjustment of patients to their affirmed gender.
