The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the specific mental health disorders you have, how well they are managed, and your overall mental health status.

In general, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care (SOC) recommend that transgender people with a history of mental health disorders undergo a mental health assessment prior to gender-affirming surgery. This assessment is typically conducted by a therapist or psychiatrist who is experienced in working with transgender people.

The purpose of the mental health assessment is to:

  • Assess your mental health status and ensure that you are stable enough to undergo surgery.
  • Discuss your expectations for gender-affirming surgery and help you to make an informed decision about whether or not surgery is right for you.
  • Identify any potential risks or challenges associated with surgery and develop a plan to manage them.

If you have a history of mental health disorders, the mental health assessment will likely focus on your current mental health status and how your disorders are being managed. The assessor will also want to understand your expectations for gender-affirming surgery and your reasons for wanting surgery.

If the assessor determines that you are stable enough to undergo surgery and that you have a clear understanding of the risks and benefits of surgery, they will likely recommend that you proceed with surgery. However, if the assessor has concerns about your mental health status or your ability to make an informed decision about surgery, they may recommend that you delay surgery or seek further treatment for your mental health disorders.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to have FtM hysterectomy surgery if you have a history of mental health disorders is a personal one. You should discuss your options with your doctor and therapist and make the decision that is right for you.

In general, having a history of mental health disorders does not automatically exclude someone from undergoing FtM (Female to Male) hysterectomy surgery. However, it is essential to consider the potential impact of mental health on the surgical process, recovery, and overall well-being.

It is recommended to have an open and honest discussion with your healthcare provider or surgical team about your mental health history and any ongoing mental health concerns. They can assess your individual situation, evaluate the stability and management of your mental health disorders, and consider the potential impact on the surgical process and recovery.

Mental health disorders may require additional considerations and support during the surgical process. It is important to have a comprehensive plan in place to address any specific mental health needs before, during, and after the surgery. This may involve collaborating with mental health professionals, ensuring access to appropriate support networks, and potentially adjusting any medications or therapies to optimize your mental health and well-being.

Your healthcare provider will work with you to develop a tailored plan that takes into account your mental health history, current stability, and any specific concerns. They may recommend additional evaluations or consultations with mental health professionals to ensure that you are adequately prepared for the surgical experience.

Remember that the surgical journey is unique to each individual, and decisions regarding FtM hysterectomy surgery should be made in collaboration with your healthcare provider, considering your specific health status, mental health considerations, and overall well-being. By maintaining open communication, seeking appropriate support, and prioritizing your mental health, you can work towards a successful surgical outcome and recovery.
