As the title says, Im wanting to have a hysterectomy.
My reasons are this:
1. Ive struggled with insanely heavy, uncomfortable periods since my 10th birthday when I got them.
2. I have 2 children and do not want anymore.
3. I am sick of living on nurofen plus when I have my period due to the pain
4. I am sick of the period affecting my life, socially and physically.
So, i spoke to my ob about it, and he wanted me to try this procedure where they burn the inside lining of the uterus (I cant remember the name of it). Id much rather just have the hysto and be done with it. I am seeing him in September to discuss what to do but my mind is made up.
Ive had cancer and major surgeries (14) so the thought of another surgery doesnt worry me.
So Im wondering if anyone has had a hysterectomy by choice, and if you were supported by your ob/ gyn to do it.
Id love to hear your experiences.
