I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Talk to me about hysterectomy

I'm over my uterus.  Over it.  I hate it.  It hates me.  Mutual feelings I suppose.  I'm now having my cycle every 20-25 days with light bleeding at least 5 days before.  So, I'm bleeding every 15-20 days.  I'm totally over it.  Not only that, but, my cyclical migraines are back...the ones that I used to only get on BCP.

I can't take BCP because of my migraines with Auras...I don't WANT anything INSERTED inside of me.  I dont do well with drugs sometimes...I can only imagine.

I am seriously considering talking to my Dr. about a hysterectomy.  Obviously I'm not having anymore children (not for lack of trying).  I'm pretty sure you have to ovulate for that?  ;)

Give me the pros and cons.

I found a "Center for Pelvic Health" here, and, I'm going to make an appointment.  I'm DEFINITELY done with my OB's office.  They tell me irregular bleeding isn't a symptom of endo.  So, when I looked on THEIR website the other day, why is that at #3????

So frustrated!!!
