    Have you thought about getting the Mirena? It's taken 2 months and this last period I just had was already better.

    Was your age an issue at all?

    I have been looking into this myself as a way to control mine too. I read that having a hysterectomy can increase your risk of some cancers quite dramatically as well as increase your risk of a range of internal prolapses. Things to consider of you go down that road is whether to leave your cervix and ovaries intact as it can reduce the cancer risk a little leaving them, and help regulate your hormone levels to an extent. And the initial recovery is 6 weeks but long term recovery of up to 12 months before any lifting of any substantial weight can be done.

    I may have misinterpreted the information so do your own research but this is what I understand.

    I dont want the mirena either its not for me. I dont want a cycle at all. Yes the ob said he would leave the ovaries so my hormones were alright. I think he knows my mind is made up.....

    Well I didn't know about leaving the ovaries and stuff. I thought age was a factor in having it done too.

    I had one at the age of 27. Due to mennoraghia (sp) heavy periods that were like I was hemorraging.

    Blasting of the lining can work, mostly in older women tho as you approach menopause, younger women constantly renew the lining so it may only be short term results.

    Pm me if you need more answers etc

    My hysterectomy was done vaginally too. Less down time than a traditional one (almost like a c section)
