Painful periods (IBS symptoms)/CIN3

Hello all (I'm new!!)

I have had 2 lletz treatments for highly abnormal cervical cells and been told I have an aggressive strain of HPV. I suffer desperate pain for over a week before, and during, my periods - IBS type symptoms. Periods are not that heavy though.

My Gynae has suggested a hyst.bearing in mind the above but my main concern is will it help with the IBS/PMT symptoms? Does it depend on whether an ovary/both ovaries are removed? Surely your hormones still fluctuate as normal or do they change after a hyst with say the ovaries left?

Thanks all

Re: Painful periods (IBS symptoms)/CIN3

If the goal is to alleviate IBS issues, then it would be the ovaries you would want to remove, not the uterus. Hormones play a part in bowel function which could explain why you have symptoms around your period.

If you retain your ovaries and they continue to function normally (sometimes they stop working as their blood supply can be interrupted and they are not always able to establish a new, adequate one), then your IBS issues could continue.

I would suggest talking to a gastroenterologist before making a decision about a hysterectomy and/or oophorectomy for IBS concerns. I would also want a definite IBS diagnose from someone who treats that condition on a regular basis.

Another thing to consider, are you sure the pain is IBS or do you have some other medical issue such as endometriosis on your bowel walls? Having had both, I know they can both be painful and cause similar symptoms and can cause pain around your period. That pain is not eliminated with the removal of the uterus I can tell you first hand!

Have you had a second gynecological opinion yet about what might be best for you?
