Women may need surgery from an OB-GYN at different times in their lives for many different reasons. A younger woman may need ovarian cysts or fibroids removed to be able to get pregnant. An older woman may need a hysterectomy. Surgery can be used to address pelvic pain from endometriosis and abnormal bleeding in the uterine cavity. Surgery may be also needed to remove a failed pregnancy or to prevent another pregnancy from happening. Gynecological cancer is another common reason for surgery.

- Dilation and curettage
