Hysterectomy is not a cure for Endometriosis yet so many women are led to believe that it is. Unfortunately media and many medical practitioners still believe this outdated theory (along with many other myths).
The roadmap to parenthood is different for everyone but I am pretty sure most women would assume things happen in the natural way for them regardless of relationship status. But for many women the natural way is no longer an option when you have a disease that affects fertility. For me that disease was twofold, one was Endometriosis and the other Adenomyosis.
