SHARING IS CARING

Not Childless, but Still Sad

From the Emotion Health - Grief - Depression Articles List

I have children but I'm still sad after my hysterectomy.I have a wonderful thirteen year old son that I thank God for, but I have wanted another child since he was two. Everybody keeps saying, "just be grateful for the one you have." I am, but I still have days where I just sit and think "what if?". Do I have the right to be sad?


Of course you have the right to be sad; the plan you had for your life has changed. We often go through a grieving process after the loss, but time has a way of healing all wounds. There's no right or wrong here. You're just sad, that's all.

It doesn't matter if you never thought you wanted children or always wanted them. Or if you never had them or had several children. It hurts to have the ability to have children taken away.

Members of HysterSisters.com often report they are surprised by their emotional thoughts after their surgery. Even if they have children and hadn't planned to have more, the loss of the womb is an emotional experience.

Take time to grieve your loss. Share your pain with others who understand. Find friends who fill your life with goodness and kindness. Be good to yourself.
