Over stayed their welcome

Hi! I'm new here.. Well, Aunt Flo and Uncle Tom have over stayed their welcome and I'm about to kick them out!!! I'm approaching 41 and have 2 kids 16 and 9. Always have had heavy periods, had the ablation done about 5 years ago, it helped but I never stopped having periods. They were certainly more manageable but no more changing every 30 minutes to an hour on the heavy day. I've had a few abnormal paps throughout the years, they have been normal for the past 6 or 7 but my cervix is very temperamental now days, sometimes it bleeds during intercourse, it bleeds when the Dr. touches it during an exam. I have lots of spotting about a week before my period, especially if I push when I have a bowel movement, I get pinkish bleeding. This month my period has been in high gear for the past 6 days, it's never lasted this long. I've given birth to several large clots this time...If I can feel them passing, they are too big.... I have talked to my doctor last winter about a hyster and she doesn't see any reason to not do it and feels that since I delivered 2 rather large children vaginally (9lbs 12 oz and 10 lbs 7 oz) that she should be able to to a vaginal... After reading about some women's stories and the horrible pain and bleeding that they have, my issues seem so small... but I just think it's time to say farewell to having a period every month.

Welcome!

Like you I mainly suffer from periods with heavy and excessive bleeding. My surgery date isn't until mid December and I've questioned a few times if I should really go through with the surgery. Like you every time I pass a clot, have an excessively heavy flow that makes life difficult or make a choice about clothing based on my flow, I know that I've made the right decision.

Over stayed their welcome

Hi, tvh on 8/4. I am very happy to have had this surgery and it has already improved my life. I had heavy, painful periods for years and they kept getting worse. I knew that I had fibroids and reoccurrring polyps on my cervix. My Doc has been saying that we could discuss my options when it started affecting my life. Well, periods did affect my life and that of my family. I got to the point that I was scheduling events around my period-not a good way to live and not fair to my active family. I researched options available, Doc, Dh and myself decided tvh was the best, for me. And it was. I had textbook recovery and am now back to work (being very careful). I did not go into this lightly, I researched and researched again. I asked myself if I could live until menopause like this. Probably, but what about quality of life? But what about quality of life if the doctor makes a mistake, or something goes horribly wrong during surgery. There are so many other weights on this scale. Good luck to you and I hope everthing goes in your favor. Best wishes

Oh, you might want to check out adenmyosis. I had never heard of that before research, and yup, pathology confirmed it. Best wishes
