As long as you have a cervix, cervical cancer is a risk for you. Removal of the female reproductive system can overcome these risks. You’ll also have the added benefit of knowing that your legal-sex can easily be corrected to male.
If you’re planning to have genital reconstructive surgery (GRS), consult with your preferred surgeon first in case they have any advice about the procedure.
FTM Australia recommends a vaginal or laparascopic hysto is the optimal procedure for men like yourself. Abdominal hysterectomy can leave unwanted complications and reduce your options if you change your mind in the future about GRS.
