    i too would like to do this. After my ectopic i was left with only option to conceive was IVF - I have heavy (understatement) painful periods and have a mirena atm. Its my 3rd one and loved the last 2 this one isnt working. I ave 15 day periods and only 12 days inbetween. Spot after DTD and cramping in unbeliveable. I am waiting to see my gyno in may to have to removed as no one at my medical centre is certified to take them out.... I have the support around me for recovery time but its trying to convince my gyno. Im 31 not sure if he will do it but going to try my hardest to convince him...
    It does effect you emotionally, mentally,physically and socially.. As well as relationship wise.. I am not one to DTD during AF and atm poor DF has a 12 day window if he is lucky.

    I would normally have to have a pad at the front and back! Not very comfortable at all.

    I've had endometrial ablation. I was back at work the following day, those who say they could have gone back the day of having it done must be much stronger than I was, for the cramping pain that first day isn't pleasant! I'd also like to mention in many cases it stops it completely but not in all cases. Generally it depends on your age and your healing process. I had no periods for about 4 months and then they restarted, lighter though. A year after having it done the issue that sent me to the gyno in first place was back (unexplained bleeding as an added bonus mid month). They did warn me that because I wasn't in my 40's + it could happen so it wasn't as if I wasn't prepared, just hopeful! After all the ablation damages the lining through a burning process, it doesn't fix the hormonal issues too.

    I also have met a woman who electively chose to have a hysterectomy (leaving ovaries in) due to similar issues and she wouldn't have chosen any other way, loves the freedom. Since then she put on a lot of weight as her ovaries struggled to comprehend what was going on they can sometimes go a bit haywire and spit out more ova, as a result a much earlier menopause. Still she is very happy with the result.

    So I say do what you want! Just make sure you are completely informed on all options.

    i had been demanding a hysterectomy for a long time, due to the severity of my endo and pcos, heavy and painful irregular periods, also being told i was infertile, however noone would ever touch me because i was too young, and didnt have kids, im now pregnant, so im kinda glad i didnt have it, but i will more than likely be back to wanting it as soon as bubs is out, no pill or contraception ever worked for me, if anything they used to make me bleed more, heavier, and more frequently. its a tough decision and its even harder when you have made your mind up and nobody will help

    Before you make any decisions, watch this video on the female anatomy before and after hysterectomy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q80tlNKg3p4 It is 10 mins long but worth it.

    Thanks for the video. I still feel the op will be the best choice for me.
