In this video, we discuss how hysterectomy, even with ovarian conservation, increased the long-term risks of depression and anxiety by over 20% compared with referent women. In this population-based cohort with 20 years of follow-up, hysterectomy with ovarian conservation was associated an absolute risk increase of 7% for depression and 5% for anxiety. Women who had a hysterectomy before age 36 had even higher absolute risk increases: 12% for depression and 10% for anxiety.

This video presents our impetus to embark on this randomized trial and the significance of our manuscript. We discuss the innovative use of CO2 fractional laser therapy for the treatment of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) and compare it to gold standard therapy. We summarize our thoughts regarding clinical applicability of the CO2 fractional laser for GSM and make our recommendations for future work in studying its long-term efficacy and safety.
