      If you have cycle related pain, then yes, a hysterectomy will get rid of that symptom. However, a hysterectomy will not reduce PCOS symptoms. By putting your body effectively into menopause, your androgen levels will still be elevated, as those are controlled by your adrenal glands, and not have a lot of estrogen to back it up. It wouldn’t help with insulin resistance either, as your insulin levels are controlled by your pancreas and it’s a whole body process. There are lots of articles about it, but here’s one from an obgyn talking about why it won’t help with PCOS symptoms. https://integrativemgi.com/hysterectomy-cure-pcos-2/#:~:text=Some%20gynecologists%20are%20recommending%20to,contain%20cancerous%20or%20precancerous%20cells.
