Background and objectives: Many endocrinal and metabolic changes were observed in our patients after hysterectomy (surgical menopause), leading to osteoporosis and many other systemic complications and hence, the levels of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus were measured.Materials and Methods: 34 early hysterectomy patients with 32 late hysterectomy patients and 28 normal healthy controls were included in the study. All parameters in blood were measured by using a Hitachi 917 chemistry auto analyzer (disc model). The statistical analyses were done by ANOVA.Results: The levels of magnesium and calcium were significantly decreased (p<0.001) and the level of phosphorus was significantly increased (p<0.001) in both early and late hysterectomy patients as compared to the controls. Conclusion: After hysterectomy, the levels of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus were found to be dysregulated, which might be due to a hormonal imbalance
