One of the goals of health for everybody in 21st century is the improvement of quality of life. Thus, to find the best treatment
for medical problems, it is not only enough to evaluate the results of
interventions on morbidity and mortality in clinical studies, but also that the
outcome of interventions in terms of socio-cultural aspect should be
evaluated. Uterine Prolapse strikes at the heart of a woman’s sense of her
own women nature and therefore her security along with her marital relationship
should be guaranteed after the surgery process. After the removal of uterus
women can’t find herself fulfilled though it is sick one as changes
appear in women’s life both in understanding
of her health as well as socio-cultural position that they gained
after being as women. Many of the women who underwent surgery process are still
suffering from both physical and psychological impairments. Some of them are
experiencing psychological problem as they feel no longer a whole or real woman
because of the removal of their reproductive organs, while others still had an
orgasm from intercourse not just feeling dead. The changes to their sex life have created problem to them as they still struggle to cope with the loss they feel in their life as husbands always fed
up as they argue with him. Such types of suffering and pain happen due to the socio-cultural circumstances
in which a woman is brought up. They are seen as productive machine which had never been stopped though they are
passing from pain and suffering. Thus, the overall issue of surgery process is
to assure the quality of life of women to be them as a good
wife and mother as well as good employer
outside the home but before all this feeling of a whole womanhood in their life.
