Background: Hysterectomy is one of the most commonly performed gynecological surgical procedure throughout the world. The surgical operations on the uterus are thought to be an insult to the women’s emotional equilibrium.

The prevalence of psychiatric disorder after hysterectomy was estimated vary widely ranging up to 70%. Majority of the women after hysterectomy can be depressed and can also show symptoms of mixed anxiety and depressive disorder. So, screening of psychiatric disorder in every hysterectomized woman is necessary. Objective: To evaluate psychiatric morbidity among the hysterectomized women.

Inclusion criteria were married women after 3 to 6 months following planned hysterectomy with reproductive age. Women having past history of psychiatric illness or substance abuse, history of any malignancy leading to hysterectomy or history of any chronic medical illness or any other major surgical treatment were excluded. 365 women following hysterectomy were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria and categorized as hysterectomized group. Another 366 age matched nonhysterectomized women were selected as control group. Results: The mean age of the respondents was 41.48 (SD±3.79) years which was almost identical to control group (p=0.953). Most of the women (49.5%) were below the age of 40 years. Psychiatric co-morbidity was most frequent in hysterectomized group (38.3%) as compared to control group (28.1%) (p<0.001).
