Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have completed your family and do not desire to have further children, then you can consider option of getting hysterectomy done. It can be done by abdominal surgery and even by laparoscopy. Discuss about the risks and benefits of both the procedure with your treating doctor/gynecologist and proceed further with what best suits you.
Take care.
