Do you think that maybe as women, we might have done something somehow that made us have these problems. Anyway we could have prevented the bleeding, the fibriods and all the other crap?( I know that not everyones can be prevented)

Sometimes, I wonder if I did something wrong or if there was a way I could have prevented all the bleeding problems ive had and everything they found inside me.

Sometimes, I wonder if its my fault.

Hi Cuddlyrock,

I agree with Jamie. I thought the same thing.

My Drs told me that fibroids can be from heredity. My mom and both my sisters have had them.

So...don't beat yourself up. It just happens.

Yep, I was told they were hereditary too. My mother had the exact same grapefruit-sized fibroid as I did. She had her TAH when she was 40, I had mine on Nov. 25th,2004 and I am 38.

WEIRD!!! I have an 11 year old daughter and I am WORRIED that she will get the "broid curse" too! We'll cross that bridge when we come to it!

Don't know of any way in which to avoid these dreaded things? I think some of us are genetically prone to them...bummer.

Heal well sisters!

I kind of think the same thing.Maybe if I would have had my yearly check ups after having my last baby 13 years ago maybe it wouldn't have came to needing a hyst. Maybe another treatment would have prevented it. I had adenomyosis. I am thinking maybe ablation or something would have stopped it.
I did not take it easy during my recovery and now have a rectocele and enterocele. I wonder if my overdoing it caused these problems too. It is a prolapse in the pelvic floor. I did alot of strainous things that I shouldn't have. I guess it is too late to question myself. All I can do now is get it treated and be very careful during my recovery. I shouldn't have been superwoman!
Too late to worry about could have and should haves now.

I don't know about endo being hereditary, no one else in my family has had it, I know that I have had painful periods since day one and was using prescription pain killers during my first 2 days since I can remember and always stayed home the first day. After the birth of my daughter in 94, my periods changed and I didn't have the real painful cramps as before for a while. I did however develop the pain during ovulation that i never had before. I pray my DD doesn't have periods like I did.

Well there was nothing I could have done to grow another half a uterus and then change that and my existing into a normal instead of bi-corneal and to grow another tube and ovary.

darn my parents giving me defective genes lol.
