Fifty males had hysterectomies in Oregon in 2022 according to Oregon Health Authority data provided to a state representative.

Rep. Ed Diehl requested data regarding so-called “gender-affirming” procedures performed in the state during the debate surrounding HB 2002, a bill that requires health insurance companies to cover the cost of sex change interventions. Along with the 50 hysterectomies performed on males, there were some other curiosities, including 47 males undergoing “chest masculinization” surgery, and 13 males undergoing “genital masculinization.”
