Here are a few reasons you may need a hysterectomy. You have invasive cancer of the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and/or ovaries. Hysterectomy is often necessary and lifesaving when you’re diagnosed with invasive cancer. The procedure may involve removing the ovaries and fallopian tubes, as well as the uterus.

You have the BRCA gene. Uterine fibroids that cause pain, bleeding, or other problems Uterine prolapse, which is a sliding of the uterus from its normal position into the vaginal canal Cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries Endometriosis Abnormal vaginal bleeding Chronic pelvic pain Adenomyosis, or a. For large fibroids, your doctor may suggest a hysterectomy as a way to relieve the symptoms, especially if they are causing a lot of bleeding. A myomectomy can remove fibroids from the womb and is a good option if you still want to have children. But not all fibroids can be treated through this procedure.

A hysterectomy is not a reasonable choice for permanent birth control. It is a major surgery and as such hysterectomy complications and side effects can occur which can negatively impact your life forever.

A woman may have a hysterectomy for different reasons, including: �Uterine fibroids that cause pain, bleeding, or other problems �Uterine prolapse, which is a sliding of the uterus from its normal. If you have actually currently had youngsters or do not wish to have children, it may make good sense to have a hysterectomy for a less serious condition if other approaches have actually failed – if, say, you’ve suffered years of fibroid pain and excessive bleeding that don’t respond to drugs or other treatments.

  • I had laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery a week ago. My uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes were removed. I still have my ovaries. The surgery went well and my pain was minimal. Thank you for sharing your video, I am so thankful that I had the surgery.

  • I’ve just recently elected to have a hysterectomy as well due to fibroids. I can’t take this anymore, I’m so desperate for relief. I am a mom of three and do not want to have any more children. I’m on iron infusions now because this has caused my anemia to get really really bad. Dr said we need to bring up my levels before we can do surgery. I can’t do this, I’m an eyelash stylist and it’s seriously been affecting my job. Thank you for sharing your story, it felt like you were sharing mine

  • Dear Tamika,
    I came across your video because I was looking for answers about Hysterectomy decisions. I’m thankful that you were open and honest. I have so many medical complications already. But, have been on FMLA for cycles, extremely heavy flow, back spasms and everything. I have a consult today of getting a hysterectomy and my soul is shaken because I’m 37, with just godkids. So, I’m struggling mentally, but physically the pain is unbearable each month to wear I’m on Narcotics and Valium. So, watching your video, helped me to not feel so ashamed or torn about my decision.

  • I had a radical hysterectomy due to cancer. The surgery has weakened my immune system. Made me really ill. I’m freezing cold. Weak. Before the surgery I was strong. I’ve months of hassles now. Biggest mistake of my life.

  • Ive never cried about fibroid symptoms until watching your video. Currently experiencing the same decreased quality of life with the bleeding. Having an ultrasound tommrow to see what’s going on in there. Tried BCPs, had a myoectomy 7 yrs ago which helped about 35% and only lasted about 3 yrs until they grew back. Now my Dr describes my uterous as being size 20 wk pregs. Just stopped 30 day period. I’m done with this U

  • I had an abdominal hysterectomy 4/23 and stayed in the hospital for 3 days. The doctor removed my uterus, cervix, and Fallopian tubes. I kept both ovaries and have no hormonal or menopause side effects. Thankfully I had no complications besides the normal soreness and a bit of an issue getting in and out of bed for the first 10 days. I recently had my 2 wk check up and I’m feeling amazing! No more pain, periods, bloating and overall discomfort. I had several large uterine fibroids which was the reason for my surgery.

  • Omg I know what you mean about the pads and work and changing. I’m contemplating having a hysterectomy watching this video helped me a lot. Thank you for sharing. I’m glad it’s helped you and your lifestyle. Praise God. ��

  • I am a post menopausal women age 58 with a fibroid that has grown. I recently had vaginal bleeding that lasted two days. I had an ultrasound and uterine biopsy. I have been told I need a hysterectomy. Does this sound like a procedure I need?

  • Im getting mine done in 4 weeks and I love to hear you are happy OMG you rock!! I hope I come out saying the same!! I will have the same kind you did. I will get to the link and see your story. Thanks for all of this info. I feel better about it

  • I see these “risks” as only risks, not an guarantee. This video will serve as information and a tap on the shoulder to do what I can to guard against these things. That’s about all we can do ladies. We had to choose from the choices we were handed. Now we can arm against this the best we can. Good luck sisters

  • Is it normal to be spotting blood five years after a hysterectomy? I have started having spotting blood for a couple of days and am a little scared to even go get checked out. My sister passed away from cervical cancer four years ago.

  • Thank you so much for your video. I’ve prolonged this surgery for some time now, mostly to see if I went into menopause and wait to see if fibroids would shrink due to estrogen levels dropping. I’m 53 and no menopause yet. I just can’t wait any more. I’ve got a 20 week pregnancy size uterus packed with fibroids, which 3 are pretty good size. I’ve gained weight, but I seriously look pregnant and wonder if some of that is the large uterus. I’m very symptomatic.. Cycles aren’t long, but at least 2-3 days of constant bleeding and have low iron. I’m constantly in the bathroom day and night having to go. My bladder is prolapsed, as well as my large uterus, so I’m getting monthly bladder infections as well. At times I have a bad back ache, swelling of my feet and legs, as well as regular cramping in my legs. The only other procedure I was a candiate for was UAE, but because they cannot predict what results you will get and that the fibroids can grow back, I decided to pass on that. Plus, I’m not wanting to be on antibiotics every month for infections anymore. All of this has greatly affected my quality of life. Just having the constant urge to go to the bathroom keeps me from going places and doing things. It has affected my work as well.. This last cycle was just awful and I told myself I’m done. So I’m waiting for the call as to when my surgery will be. My Dr. will be taking just my uterus and leaving cervix and ovaries. But I’m just terrified of something happening and I feel worse after the surgery. I’ve read and watched a lot of stories and videos of how people said what a horrible experience they had and now they have more things they are dealing with. This terrifies me. But I know God says not to live in fear. Yet, there are many that I have seen that say it was the best decision they made and wished they would of made it sooner. Just wondering if you could comment, and if you felt and experienced these symptoms that I have now before your surgery. Thanks so much.. God Bless

  • I love this video! You share your personal experience while allowing others to make their choice. You could insert my name in your whole experience. Heavy periods, pain, bleeding through your clothes, the sheets, etc. I am a teacher, I stand on my feel ALL DAY and go up and down the stairs too. I have delayed the procedure for so long, but I am having it within the next month and CAN’T WAIT. It was refreshing to see your emotions because I have been so emotional but feel like people don’t understand the emotional stress of this! God richly BLESS YOU!

  • Thank you for this informative video! I had a hysterectomy similar to yours in April 2019 (just one ovary left) but did not have the recommendation of pelvic floor exercises. Would I still get the benefit of the exercises if I began doing them now, over a year later?

  • Symptoms of vaginal prolapse after a hysterectomy include the feeling of vaginal fullness or pressure, like you’re sitting on a small ball, and the sensation that something has fallen out of your vagina. In more serious cases of vaginal prolapse, the top of the vagina may sag and bulge outside of the vaginal opening.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m trying to get up nerve to call my doctor this morning and schedule. I know there are other options but this my best option. Thanks

  • Thank you so much Tamika! I appreciate you being transparent! I was actually following your Cruise videos and stumbled up on this one and I’m glad I did! Im 50 years old, married and we have 4 children. I have been having heavy periods since I started having periods at 9 years old. So, for 41 years, my periods have always lasted for 6 days. So, I guess I’d kinda gotten used to that. And like you, in the last 10 years or so my 2nd and 3rd days are like red rivers flowing. And it is exhausting, frustrating and embarrassing at times. I was having to cover my bed with towels and plastic to protect the sheets. I’m a Mail Lady and having periods in the summer and having to stop, find a clean restroom to clean myself up, freshen up, change pads (and I was having to wear a pad and a tampon at the same time) was sooooo frustrating. But, it wasn’t until a few years ago, sex was becoming painful and cramping during my periods had become a REAL issue. Earlier this summer, I found out I had fibroids and scar tissue ( from c-sections during my last 2 children) that was causing the pain during sex. When my Dr suggested all of my options and mentioned a hysterectomy it was like a lightbulb went off. I HAD NEVER even thought of or considered it. But HONEY, I got excited instantly! I am 3 days post hysterectomy and I’m so excited to know that I won’t have to deal with periods EVER AGAIN. Enough is enough! Your videos are helpful and I’m so happy for you and glad things are better for you now. I’m sure other women who happen to stumble across your video will appreciate your honesty and transparency just as I have.

  • Our stories are exactly the same…I’m having my surgery tomorrow DaVinci method…I hope my end result is the same.I cried w you I felt your agony….

  • Perhaps if any of the several doctors I’ve seen in the past 13 years about my chronic pain and extreme bleeding had taken me more seriously, I may not be needing a hysterectomy now. My symptoms are so bad I always have to be rushed to the emergency room for blood transfusions and pain medication, hypovolemia, profound anemia, hypokalemia (all the emias), anti nausea meds for the violent vomitting on the first three days after desperately trying unsucessfully to even keep enough water down just to take some advil, but can’t because any little movement in my gut causes excrutiating pain and makes me throw up. So terrified to eat during my period that I stop eating two days before it starts so that I can be empty just to reduce the extreme pain and vomitting…every single month. Somehow, all the doctors in the past couldn’t see that i was suffering from a severe case of endometriosis. Only recently after moving closer to the mayo clinic area has anyone been able to diagnose it, and she was able to diagnose it JUST from reading my CT scan results. Maybe the doctors in the past were actually trying to kill me slowly and painfully, because that’s what it’s felt like for all these years. I literally couldn’t live. My job is afraid to hire me full time because I call out sick so much, so I’m stuck with crappy part time wages until I’m able to put an end to this disease once and for all. I can’t WAIT to get rid of this thing in my body trying to kill me. I don’t care if I’m too young, any complication afterward is worth the risk….it IS a complication as it is now. A MASSIVE one. Some annoying inconveniences IF any, will be dealt with as they come. I just want to live a real life not trapped and stuck and dependent on other people to take care of me because I can’t. I’ve wasted my entire 20s being trapped and stuck because of this.

  • Thanks for your honesty about bowel movements, you are right no one talks about it! Thank you for sharing, it helped me to realise I wasn’t the only one!

  • So happy for u!! I can’t wait to feel better. Needing a hysterectomy myself due to bleeding so much during periods causing me to have years of pain, and iron problems. I also have fybroids.

  • Finding this video was a God send for me. I was scared but not after watching this. Thank you for giving me peace of mind. Your story and symptoms parallel my situation exactly. I am lucky enough to have a child and not planning on any more. ����

  • I know this was soooo long ago but I am clapping for you right now. Your story is so much like mine except I was going through hormonal issues and had much longer periods (8 months long at one point). I’ve had my children and just couldn’t take it anymore. This video embodies what it is like to take your life back and your body back. Thank you for sharing, it is so important for other women like you and I to see this. I am 2 months out and feel like a completely new woman. My recovery was like yours where I had pain maybe 2-3 days. I took it easy for a few weeks after that. I feel so much more joy not dealing with the pain and fatigue and bleeding. All 3 videos ive found that you did on the subject were the moat comprehensive and relatable ive seen

  • I cancelled my hysterectomy after reading about these common procedures & myths of a “Happy” Hysterectomy. Even with the fibroids, polyps, and heavy bleeding, I’m glad I was able to research.

  • Hi I have the same problems u had. I have my surgery in the morning! Enlarged uterus and full of fibroids. Heavy periods all the time. I dont think ppl understand what type of heavy we mean. I mess up everything. My life has changed. I have to quit my job. I’m miserable.org!! Pain is on 100000000 thank you for your story

  • Hi Renee,
    I am 25 years old, but I have been suffering heavy abnormal bleeding and severe abdominal pain, also in my back and around my pelvis area, since I was about 11 years of age and has gradually gotten worse as I’ve gotten older. Even when I am not bleeding I get the severe pain.
    I am exhausted all the time and struggle to get motivated to keep up my fitness routines which makes me feel worse.
    It has a significant impact on how I live my life and what jobs I do. It effects my mental wellbeing as I struggle with depression and frustration.
    I have wanted a hysterectomy for years and years as I do not want children, I have never felt the need to want them so I am not concerned about not being able to conceive.
    I just wanted to know if I would be wasting my time going to NHS because I’m so young or should I just go private?
    I don’t want to live the prime of my life in agonising pain.

  • I can’t thank you enough for this video. The sanitary issues, no one talks about how degrading that is. I work with ALL men. And I wear a uniform. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in bathroom washing out my clothes upset and crying about blood on myself.
    On top of all that painful intercourse puts so much stress on a marriage.
    My surgery is a couple weeks and I am really starting to panic. This brought me alot of peace. Thank you. ��

  • I had a total abdominal hysterectomy a year and one month ago. I have pain off and on, but its crazy. I need advice on what to do.

  • So glad i found this. You are beautiful and I’m thankful that you shared. I’m 38 and had a Mirena IUD implanted 14 months ago, per my GYN as a last resort from hysterectomy. �� I had taken meloxicam and something else prior, and it didn’t work. The Mirena worked the first 10 months, but it slowly started getting heavier and heavier and more painful, and now I’m getting back to the dripping blood. �� I feel like a failure bc everything ive tried has failed. I know I’m almost 40, but I still have that thought in the back of my head of “id love to have 1 more child”, but at this point, my constant “spotting” in various shades of red, brown….and the pain….my sex life in nonexistent anyway. I try to look at the positives….i used to literally be sitting and would “flood” my clothes. �� like you, I slept on towels. I passed massive clots, was anemic etc. I don’t have those issues now….but mirena has not helped me the way it says it will. Hysterectomy is my next option and I’m considering it. I’m tired of being so I uncomfortable, having no sex life or painful sex, and never knowing when I’ll need a pad. Thank you for sharing your story. I hope youve continued to feel great and are doing well.

  • I am scared of pain and i have a physical job (cleaning woman) i am afraid of loosing my job, money because not suppose to lift anything. Cleaning big houses of rich people.. i also have heavy bleeding but not as much as you but i have a precancer. Dont know really much what that means but i cant keep my uterus anymore

  • I didn’t have any Choice but to get this surgery done. My doctor put me on birth control to stop the heavy bleeding and shrink my thyroids but more thyroids kept popping up on my uterus so the doctor ask me what I want to do so I said fuck it I’ll take the hysterectomy. In the past I had many miscarriages and heavy bleeding so I shouldn’t have anything to worry about but my health now

  • I am going to make a after adomal ‘Hysterectomy Video as well,… after I have it, Heal from it, And Get some. wish I could fastFord to the Sex, so I can tell everybody how it was,.. ready for that’Part {FastFord}��

  • Hi.. I’m 44 years old and just had a hysterectomy 10/5/17!!! I was diagnosed with chronic bleeding and just like you.. my periods lasted longer and longer until finally May 2017..my period didn’t end. I’ve had three blood transfusions this year and I had a transfusion approx 10 yrs ago when I nearly passed out due to being severely anemic!! I found out I had fibroid tumors..which I never knew. I was able to conceive though!!! God blessed us with our son after 8 years of failed pregnancies. So the surgery took 6 hours and my doctor said I had 8 fibroids..yes 8!!! I’m now 6 weeks post op and feel the best I’ve ever felt!!! God is good!!!

  • Thank you for sharing your story I am only 40 and this is one of the options that I have to choose from im a little scared but I know this may be the best option for me ����

  • I have the same problem, Ive been on my period since July 15, it is now Aug 29, hopefully my doctor gives me a date for surgery tomorrow.

  • Thanks for sharing your story. I am suffering with the same issues. Your story was such an encouragement. Thank you so much for sharing.

  • Thank you for sharing, I just got one a few days ago. And I was the same way. Embarrassed to go some where when I was on my period. I wore 3 pads the overnight ones. And still bleed thru. I had Fibroids and enda., horrible. And, I had my daughter at 37. They said I would never get pregnant. Because of the Fibroid. But she is 5, healthy. And I wasn’t sure if I was doing the right thing. Because of so many woman not able to have children. But I could not take one more period, no more bleeding every where. Judging my jobs by how much pain I could take it I done them. You have a family here sis.

  • HOW MY WIFE GOT CURED OF FIBROID

    Hello everyone my name is Michael Porter from Ohio and I want to share my testimony on how my wife got cured of fibroid naturally after 8 years of suffering from this abnormal growth in her uterus. We have been married for 5 years and the fibroid has been hampering her ability to conceive. She had this fibroid before we got married. She was told that since the fibroid is not affecting quality of her life, treatment may not be necessary. So she decided not to treat it not until we got married and it became even worse affecting her ability to conceive so we decided to look for a permanent solution. When I discussed it with a colleague at work, she told me that she knows a traditional doctor that can help us with his herbal medicines and my wife will be cured and be able to conceive. We decided to give it a try because my wife was afraid of surgery and that was the only option our doctor gave us since the fibroid is severe. So she gave me the contact of Dr. Sani, and I called him and discussed with him, he assured me that after taking his herbal medicines for 3 weeks that my wife fibroid will be gone and she can go to my doctors for checkup to confirm it. It sounded too good to be true but we went ahead and gave him a try, after using the herbal medicines for 2 weeks, all my wife symptoms disappeared and I told him about it but he asked that she complete the treatments before going to the doctor for checkup. She completed the treatments and today I am so happy that my wife fibroid is totally gone and our son is 2 months old. There is nothing compared to the joy of parenthood.

    If you are also suffering from any fibroid, you can contact him too, you might be the next person to share testimony.

    You can contact Dr. Sani by Email at: [email protected] gmail.com OR Call/WhatsApp on: +234 90 32 592103

  • All of the research I’ve done said the surgery recovery time is one week, my doctor said the same. Why did you need 3 wks (though I know you chose to take 5 wks off)?

  • ALL THANKS TO BEST DR. ALABI WITH HIS HERBAL MEDICINES MY WIFE WAS COMPLETELY CURED FROM MULTIPLE FIBROID….       This is one of the happiest Moment of my Life to see my Wife put to Birth.

  • I am thinking to do the same. I’m always in pain. I’ve had two c sections, a tubal tie and an ovary extraction.. like I said, I’m always in pain and my husband feels so bad, and the kids, because they can’t help ��. My periods are horrible. They stay for ever and leave and come back again in the same month and Massive ovary pain.. on the other side. Thank thank you for your time.

  • It is a blessing. Thank you for sharing!!! I am scheduled for surgery and so grateful for the heartfelt video. I have been struggling for what sincerely feels like forever. Part of me is looking forward to being post-op knowing that after I heal I won’t ever have to deal with a period again. On the other hand I am fearful. But, I’m trying to meditate and keep it positive. ����Sat Nam.

  • I’m under 50 and tried everything. Nothing worked so I had a partial and I feel fantastic. So basically to combat potential negative effects, just exercise.

  • Not a good surgery. Please more information. If not good, let women know not to have one.. it is very harmful this operation especially removing perfectly good ovaries. Never remove healthy organs!!!!!

  • Thank you thank you for this video and tips. Being a runner, dancer for years now at 52 had a hysterectomy…….. I was shocked and disappointed why I could just bounce back within days. Like you said it takes weeks and months. I thought I was doing something wrong.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I’m three days post hysterectomy, and it’s great to see what my future can look like. I’m so happy for you!

  • I’m thankful for this video. I have been praying about this decision for awhile and I feel confident about it after watching this. Thank you so much.

  • If you can NEVER get a hysterectomy. One dr I had was trying to convince me after I just read “What drs won’t tell you about menopause” Great book! Thank god I didn’t listen to her it’s now 15 years later. I had an ablation. Hysterectomy’s are done more than woman need and it’s a racket and screws up your body and you have to be on meds for the rest of your life! US medicine loves that! Unless you have a massive fibroid or cancer, NEVER take out your uterus!! It’s a money racket baby! Great info!

  • I had a LASH hysterectomy 5 days ago. Oh boy, I’ve never felt this happy and hope it stays like this. I’ve not have a single vegina bleeding since the surgery. My only pain is when I cough, sneeze or laugh. Stopped taking painkiller on the 4th day. I had a lot of pain relief drip the first 36 hours. I think everyone recovers differently. My uterus was so big due to adenomyosis. I live in Germany and it requires a 4 days stay in the hospital. The surgeon sprayed water inside of my abdomen, and insert a tube through one on the little incisions on my abdomen that attashs to a plastic bag, where the water will go back in after cleaning the remaining blood on my inside. I was pain-free as soon as the tube was removed like 36 hours after surgery. I was watching my weight, eating really healthy, and made sure I maintained my belly muscles many weeks before surgery. Yes I have a lot of belly muscles. Which I think also helped me to not have gas or bloating, and I didn’t have any problem with bowel movement. And first of all! I was talking more to God to let his will be done. instead of telling everyone I know. You don’t have to tell all your friends if you don’t want to. Remember it’s about your well being and the more you announce it, the more you get nervous. All the woman I met there all promised me that I will feel like a new born once the tube is removed. And that was exactly what happened. In Germany, the hospital will never send you home if you are having unusual symptoms, because our health insurance is very good? I had blood tests every 2 days to monitor what’s happening, and I did an ultrasound before I was sent home. Who ever is reading this, whether you’ve had your surgery or planning to. I wish you all lots of strengths and may we all find that happiness, peace healing that we are looking for.

  • So I’m looking though YouTube and looking at other woman’s experiences of going though a hysterectomy… and I am so stressed about deciding weather to do it or not!! I had the essure done in 2014 after having my son… and now after 3 years of having it I feel so much pain and I’ve been dealing with heavy bleeding I even bleed in between periods!!!! Reason for getting it because I have a heart condition and only had my son and decided that closin the factory was a must since I felt complete with my baby boy…. now I don’t know what to do I’ve thought about a hysterectomy so I can end my pain and suffering because living the way I am right now is just not living! I don’t know what to do!!!!

  • I had a vaginal partial hysterectomy 5 weeks ago! I had a huge fibroid growing in the middle of my uterus! I lived In misery for over 8 years! I felt amazing after the surgery!! I was weak & tired & a bit sore! But no pain meds, & no more girl pains! Not having a period is awesome as well! This was the best decision ever!! ����❤️

  • Why so much makeup my sister I hope all is well thanks for sharing I just had my total hysterectomy abdominal hysterectomy 3 days ago and that side are whooping my ass

  • Hello Doll!! What was your sex life afterwards? I’m just having my uterus removed nothing else. So I have a major concern about that because I hear so much! I was trying to find videos of men sharing if it feels different to them. Maybe you can share your husbands honest opinions. I’m just kinda worried about that as well although my main concern is me being healthy again! Thanks for what you can share ��

  • I believe it’s related to the increase in estrogen >>which can lead to severe insulin resistance which is very common in the US these days. Intermittent fasting or keto really helps to combat this:) Check out Dr. Fung / delay don’t deny podcast / keto. High sugar / carb is the worst for anyone post hysterectomy. Good luck all.

  • Hi Tamika,
    How’s sex life after the surgery!
    I am going to have this surgery this week. Will I be able to enjoy my sex life after the utres and cervix removal!

  • I never rlly thought about kids as much as someone who rlly wants kids
    but i realized i really do want kids in the future and I dont know if I want to ever get this even though my periods are brutally painful and my hormones cause me alot of pain..

  • Had my surgery a week ago..recovering atm feel weak and sore.I had a partial hystrectomy and cant wait to get my life back..nice to watch a positive video and outcome.

  • Hi, if its not too personal, can u tell me the average cost of the surgery please if you dont mind? Im from the Caribbean and i would like to come to the US to get it done laparoscopically since this option is not offered in Trinidad and Tobago according to my research. Im 33 years old with fibroids, very anemic and its horrible. I really dont want to have open surgery with a large incision so im weighing my options.

  • I’ve been crying all day because my options are birth control or hysterectomy if my excessive bleeding doesnt stop after trying birth control…again! I wanted one more baby! But I also suffer with PCOS and so I guess that was my sign that I am unable to have any more kids and to just be content with my 2 who are 12 and 13 now! I will be considering all the pros and cons! I think the thing is that it just seems final! That’s what I can’t wrap my mind around!

  • My mom just called me and she was originally going to be getting a polyp removed. They did some pre-tests to make sure everything was good and that she was covid free, but they found precancerous cells and have decided to do an entire hysterectomy instead. She’s told me this today, it’s scheduled for the end of the month. She just lost her father(my grandfather) to cancer a couple weeks ago so I want to be there for her as much as possible during this crazy time.

  • Thank you for sharing your testimony to empower others who may be going through this. I too share my journey to coach women through the prep and healing/recovering process as well on my channel. I carried a massive fibroid that gave me the appearance of a 9-month pregnant woman!

  • Did you experience weight loss??
    I am having my partial hysterectomy at the beginning of the new year and I am worried of weight gain afterwards!

  • I know this might be an older video. But I’m having surgery in Oct & I’d like to know if you lost weight in the midsection afterwards?

  • How about weight loss. I kept my ovaries, I’m walking 5 miles everyday, watching what I eat and scale won’t budge. I’m a few days over 6 weeks postop and am getting disheartened. I had a very easy recovery and have been walking since day2.

  • Hello, happy all went well for you. Your story hit home for me. I’m suffering from fibroids too and very, heavy bleeding. Today i met with my gyn and he said i have about 6 and thinks its best to do a partial like you do, i would keep my overies. Now I’m 50yrs, no kids nor do i want a any since i have step kids =)… do you still bleed a little, i read where others have and did you go through any side effects, like depression or anything? Thats what I’m afrain of… this is all very new to me.

  • Hi Tamika, first I would like to say that you are very beautiful, and I love your hair. Thank you for sharing your story, you have made me feel more confident about getting the surgery done.��

  • I had a hysterectomy (by laparoscopy)similar to yours three weeks ago. My doctor told me that a hysterectomy did not cause a prolapse. The following week I will see him and again I will ask him this issue and if there is a pelvic floor therapist that he recommends. Thanks for this valuable vídeo, grettings from Mexico City ����

  • I only get my period 2 times a year. I’m going in to see if I have to get this done or get hormone therapy or something. But I want to get my period 12 times a year!

  • I’m 40ty. so. I know I will be having periods 10more years or so, IF I don’t get the surgery And probably be very ill And Die From it, from my blood getting so Low, So I’m at peace with Having it. But can you please mention How is Sex with your Husband now.. please? I needs to Know

  • Some ppl say that you will have rib collapse and your hips will widen I just believe that sounds like garbage. I had TAH last week and I have lost 15lbs, I feel great and my swelling is very minimal. I am 46 about to be 47 and had two csections prior. I think it is all in attitude and Gods will.

  • I’m 58 and just 3 days ago had a radical hysterectomy because they found uterine cancer in a biopsy. So now I am on the road to recovery. I was already post-menopause, so I really don’t notice any difference in my emotional well being yet (I wasn’t having any issues before). I have an elastic brace around my midsection to help give support if I cough. I do take it off a night because it gets painful on my ribs after a while.

  • My doctor insisted I needed a hysterectomy because of a large cyst on one ovary and CA125 level slightly raised. It didn’t make sense to me to take out more than just the cystic ovary. I didn’t want anything to do with a hysterectomy but after insistence and pushing ‘fear of cancer’ at me I gave in. So sorry I had it done. Changes your sex life. No uterine orgasms, no cervix stimulation, was the best part for me, gone. My breast or body doesn’t feel sensual. Sever dryness and atrophy of genitals even with estrogen cream. Severe depression and still have pelvic pain after 11 months. Pain still effects me at my job. I should be grateful I don’t have to worry about ovarian cancer…but I’m not. Depressed all the time. CA125 gave false positive, not unusual. I had no idea about the cyst until I went to have hernia checked. I had a great sex life and NO pain. This month my libido disappeared. I feel nothing.

  • Watch a video: side effects after hysterectomy
    Chanel: woman with opulence
    She is Very real about her expirience with hysterectomy she wrote a book also.

  • I had an vaginal hystorectomy 29 August i am really good. No problems at the moment. The only thing i want to know is what should be coming out your vagnina till it is healed???
    First all the yellow stuff from hospital…
    And i have a ligt bit of water/ blood
    Very light
    Is it normal???

  • so their is still A Sex ‘ Life., good. Tell me about it. No cervix., so What is it Like then. cuz I’m noGoOd without Sex, I’m waiting for A Husband, God won’t fail me., He’s Coming soon we or Later

  • Loved every bit of you explaining so well. Iam going to have mine Tom. You are so humble and warm. Makes you all the more beautiful inside out. Tight hugs ☺

  • I just saw your video and burst into tears.. I’ve been living with endometriosis my whole life and I’m turning 40 this year. I totally relate with it when you said it had broken you down. I’ve had a laparoscopy every 3 yrs for the last 9 yrs. I’m hanging by a thread�� did you have a full hysterectomy or a partial? Also you look amazing! I’m so scared I’ll gain more weight than I already do with the bloating.. you inspire me❤️

  • Awesome video. I’m so glad you have gotten your life back and are feeling great! My laparoscopic hysterectomy is scheduled for next Tuesday (7/2/19). Yes, I am nervous but my quality of life is in the toilet every single day due to the pain and discomfort I have! I’m so ready for this new chapter of my life, do you have any advice regarding recovery, daily activities or your hospital stay? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you��

  • Hi Dr Renee, will a hysterectomy have an impact on how ovaries function? ie: will a hysterectomy cause the ovary to eventually shut down more quickly or eventually stop producing estrogen more quickly compared to someone who did not have a hysterectomy? Just wondering if the ovaries require the uterus to function properly, if so, how? Where do the ovaries get its blood supply from? (I’m guessing it’s the blood supply that keeps the ovaries functioning?) Thank you.

  • I had my first ovary taken out when I was 22 and the next one taken out when I was 27 I am 37 now and experience on regular bleeding and doctors really have no answers for me besides pumping me full of instead of hormones which if I forget to take one I will bleed extremely heavily and the doctors don’t tell me much

  • I’m supposed to have my surgery on November 26th I’m so scared:( I almost canceled. How is after surgery? Do you feel a big loss? Can a lot of weight? Still have pain? Did you have endometriosis also?

  • I had my hysterectomy 11/26/2019 and I was going through the same thing I was scared to go on the bus or the train because I would bleed through my a size 5 pad plus a tampon in less than a hour. I sometimes see my peroid for 3 weeks or more to the point where I had to get a blood transfusion.

  • Thanks because I’m at chicken pit stage, surgery scheduled for May 9th. People are talking about joint pain, weight gain, mood shifts and they have their ovaries like I will. So much confusion

  • Please help me I am super anxious I had a hysterectomy @ the age of 50 due to cervical cancer, ovaries were also taken. I’m really scared of the mentioned protection that the ovaries have for heart and bone health in our 50s and even 60s, knowing that I don’t have my ovaries now. If you know of anyone in the same boat or if you yourself had a complete hysto and you’re doing fine years later please let me know as I could really use the peace of mind:(

  • Thank you so much for the video,I’m 24 stage 4 endometriosis with bowel damage and I’m having total hysterectomy next month,I’m so scared,is menopause that bad?

  • what a beautiful and stylish woman you are! Thanks for your honest testimonial and Thank God hysterectomy saved you from your misery. I just had a full hysterectomy for endometrial cancer -I am one week out from surgery I will count you as a hyster sister!

  • I just had my Hysterectomy 3weeks ago. I had my uterus and cervix removed only. I still have my ovaries and fallopian tubes. I fell amazing. I got my uterus and cervix removed from my lower abdomin because i had large multiple fibroids, that were making me, in abdominal pain all the time, somewhat heavy menstrual cycles, stomach always bloated, constipated, and just always tired and in pain. My sugery was a huge success. My incision was made very low in my pubic hair line and not very long. It looks great as it is still healing but. I feel amazing. I’m off all my pain meds. And my quality of life is so much better. Praise Jesus!!! I feel so Blessed and free of All my past symptoms.
    I’m also very happy I will never have a menstrual cycle again. I’m 47 and don’t want any kid’s so this Hysterectomy Surgery was fine for me��. Thank you for your Awesome Video Tamika☺. Really helped me to hear your experience.
    I’m De De from Michigan.

  • Hi! I love your beautiful smile and your positivity. And… hoping you could mention any “negatives” you are experiencing post op? Hormonal changes, etc. There are NO changes yet? Thanks.:)

  • I didn’t have a choice I had to have a hysterectomy at 28, a radical one due to cancer. I’ve gained almost 80 pounds but it was worth it.

  • Hi Tamika hope all is well, I just saw your video, I have been thinking on having the surgery, not because of Fibroids is because I’m having bad periods. 2 weeks before my period I’m getting cramp and pain and my mood are the worse, my fiancé and I are having so many problems because of my moods, I feel like I don’t have a life and I’m so much in pain and I’m so miserable I just can’t do this anymore. I do have children’s I have a daughter with him and 2 boys from my previous relationship. I spoke to my doctor which he is a specialist on this type of surgery, and he has recommend it to do it. I’m just so nerves about it, but listening to you I feel much better to talk to my doctor about again. thank you so much for making this video.

  • You did the right thing! I just had mine a few days ago. I had A period for 7 months, 2 blood transfusions and 4 to 5 iron infusions. I was told with multiple fibroids it all weighed 3 1/2 lbs.so glad I did it but I’m still in pain. I did the robotic surgery.

  • Hi, I know this video is from a long while ago but it was so great to watch as I was looking for some positive feedback and stumbled across it. Did you have your ovaries removed?

  • It’s been 8 months since my surgery and I feel well as far as the removal of my Fibroids. However, after my Robotic hysterectomy I’m in a lot of pain. Lower back pain, side pain, cramps, spasms in my back and up and down my right leg. I felt better before I had this surgery to be honest. Now, my doctor wants to check and see if I have nerve damage or lower spine problems. I’m on pain management medication. I can not wait for the day I get past all this pain. I’m having another X-ray just to make sure things haven’t gotten worse or if something else maybe going on. My flexibility, and movements are now very limited. My body has also changed. Everyone tell me I look good, but believe me when my clothes come off…I can see big changes. I my case a few things went South.

  • Hello, I’m not sure if you’re still answering questions on here but am looking for as much advise as I can to make the right decisions.
    I’m 63 & have had large fibroids for around 10 to 15 years. I’ve also had a large ovarian cyst removed from my left ovary when I was in my late 20s & now have a very small one on the opposite side (less than 2cm) on the opposite side. I’ve had an ultrasound & CT scan & all looks benign but have been offered a hysterectomy (or to just be discharged) with my ovaries being removed. I’ve also had DCIS along with one of my five sister. We were in our late 30s at the time & both had surgery to have this removed. I had genetic testing later to check for the BRCA 1 & 2 but it came back negative.
    What are your thoughts on having my ovaries removed in my situation? I’ve read that women’s ovaries are still functional after menopause but am finding it difficult with my age & circumstances to come to a final decision.
    Thank you x

  • Amen to all THE champions out there. God is good all THE time!! But ladies Please don’t wait too long!! Because your life really is at stake. Because Too much bleeding AND pain is never a good thing!!

  • I’m one week out from robotic laparoscopic surgery with removal of tubes and ovaries. I’m 66 and am waiting on the results of the uterine tissue. I hemorrhaged so badly I required 5 units of whole blood. DO NOT DELAY. GET CHECKED OUT.

  • My period was so bad I end up in the emergency every other month. And get Transfusion every time and stay over night. And I’m Anemic at that. I mean BIG chunks the size of a baseball would come out of me. I felt it detaching from my uterus it made me dizzy and I would fall over it wasn’t me from looking at the blood. It was losing all the blood.The bleeding would not stop. Then we found out I had cancer on my uterus. I notice my period changed in November and had the Hysterectomy in March. I had too get it done. I’m just now recovering. It’s been 7 days.

  • Tamika, you are my soul sister. My story started out the same as yours up until January 1st, 2018. I had an endometrial biopsy the day before and started my period the next day. I did not stop bleeding until like 2 days before my surgery! I had my surgery on 2/18/18 and I’m at home recovering. I feel fine, some pain here and there but ok overall. Thank you for sharing your story. I feel the same way about this decision I made. I can’t wait to live my best life without all the pain, bleeding and medications.

  • Im scheduled 7/15 for the robotic.. Im nervous but the I still have to get it done.. This video eased some of my worries! Thank You!

  • A friend confided to me that she had just got this surgery…I really felt bad for her cause she is 33 and she never had any kids, but she said “In my job I work with kids so its alright.” She is a very good karaoke Singer too so I am sure her coming too sing will help her keep her spirits up…

  • Girl you are blessing me right now. I’ve been so worried. I know I must have put off my surgery for about two years and now it’s finally scheduled and paid for. Did you experience any weight loss?

  • I fill your heart I’m going through everything you went through it’s no way to live,I decided today with my Dr to have a hysterectomy I can’t take it anymore..Thank You for sharing and I’m so glad you are feeling better..Thanks for giving me hope ��

  • i hIad that done over 10 years ago, do not regret it, it really helped me, I was anemic, and had over month long periods, and I was on my feet all day as well, I wIorked in a hospital in Nutrition services, it was a real bear to work with that, and I waited 8 years to do it, and finally did, I even had pre cancer, so it was pretty needed.

  • I’m experiencing the same thing it’s Horrible! After putting off surgery for 2 years I’m finally ready May 17th is my hysterectomy date I can’t wait until it’s over!
    Peace & Blessings!! ����

  • Thank you so much for this video. I am going through the same exact periods and fibroids and am just sick of it all. I can’t live like this anymore. My surgery is scheduled in a couple weeks.

  • Had my hysterectomy at age 27. I wanted more children, but all hopes were dashed. My operation we an emergency. I had tumors and a raging infection. Now I’m 60 with heart disease, diabetes, and more. I’m still alive. ��

  • I was told there would probably be no hospital stay at all. Is this normal? She’s going to try to do a laparoscopy but says if the fibroid is too close to the belly button then perhaps that can’t be done and she would do an abdominal surgery. Does that sound normal to you? That I would go in not knowing which type of surgery she’s going to do? Thank you.

  • Thanks for your story I’m 6 months since surgery hopefully it gets better my stomach still swells yet hopefully it will get better too

  • Thanks for such a informative video. I have gone through hysterectomy 2 weeks ago and you have inspired me to share my hysterectomy surgery story. I also have created a youtube video: https://youtu.be/CQ4L0Lmig_c

  • Okit has been 6 years. Do you mind sharing what if anyhormone therapy you’re on? How has this affected your mood, energy, libido, weight gain/loss?

  • This was the best surgery for me I had to have emergency surgery due to severe fibroids and bleeding. I knew at age 4 I didn’t want kids of my own wanted this surgery done since age 11 finally got it at age 29.

  • God bless you for sharing your story. You said you didn’t know why you’re sharing, so now you know why, to open up the subject and help people. Including me.

  • I know this is an old post, but I have adenomyosis and suffer a lot also with migraines. My question is: did you suffer from migraines before the surgery? Did it go away after the surgery? And (sorry for this question) do women get natural lubrication after hysterectomy? Is there any problems with organ prolapses? Thank you so much for sharing your story. Wish you and all women here lots of good health:)

  • Hey Tamika
    Thank you so much for your video, I am having a partial hysterectomy in two weeks( uterus, cervix, and fallopian tube‘s) and I am so nervous…. Keep thinking about how my recovery will be.
    Watching you talk about how much better your quality-of-life is is very reassuring.
    Thank you so much for putting this out there, it is comforting and gives me great hope.
    God bless you!

  • Lord! Totally can relate! I’m on my way to have my uterus removed. I’m exhausted, and in so much pain. I’ve tried everything, but I know I can’t keep going on like this. I have one child, so I’m thankful for that. But it’s time to let it go!

  • Thank you so much. I’m going to have to have it. this been the most saddest moment in my life. i just got my results back 2 days ago. I been through hell for 2 months with that bleeding. They gave me birth control and I still bleed but not much. I feel FAT, my belly fat and I know its from this. o God. I have 2 kids and not planning on any more. Thank you for encouraging me.

  • I got a question I just went to the doctor yesterday and she told me I have uterine fibroids and want to take my uterus out, but I have options my mom prayed last for God to help and give me guidance on what to choose and I found out I’m anemia too.

  • I’m 19 and I’ve been on my period for 9 months now. Before that it was 7 months straight, and before that it was 15 months straight. The only thing that separated each period was that they would stop for between a week to a couple months. The periods are not SUPER heavy, I am not going to die from blood loss, but I am physically and emotionally drained. At this rate (I assume I probably can’t have kids anyways due to how messed up everything must be) I need to do something about it. I am on two kinds of birth controls right now and my period is going strong, and I’ve tried a lot of them in the past to no prevail. I don’t know what to do because all the surgery options sound really scary and painful, and I’m scared I will regret it in the future, especially if I want to have children.

  • So you had your cervix removed too? Ugh, I’m getting a full hysterectomy in October and am debating on keeping my cervix or not! Ugh, it’s scary!

  • This video is everything! Thank you so much! No one understands what I’m going through and you described it so perfectly! I did want to chicken out but I’m going this week!! I’ve suffered for years, it’s become so debilitating! Thank you again, God bless you!

  • Friendly Advice Just for you

    1 second ago

    Thanks for such a informative video. I have gone through hysterectomy 2 weeks ago and you have inspired me to share my hysterectomy surgery story. I also have created a youtube video: https://youtu.be/CQ4L0Lmig_c

  • I can relate if it’s not a full blown period that last 8 days and heavy spotting on and off almost everyday of the month. I went to the hospital before and felt like I was in labor. They had to give me a morphine drip. Im actually setting up a appointment to discuss this. Want to get this surgery done!

  • Thank you for sharing your story! I came looking for positive outcomes. I have the green light for surgery, just waiting to schedule 6 weeks off work. I’m so glad to see how happy you are. ��

  • It’s so encouraging to see your video, I just had the surgery on Feb 5 and the recovery is kind of up and down right now �� but it helps to know that the end results will be worth it all ��

  • I had a hysterectomy because I had Endometriosis to the fourth stage n it became a life or death situation I regretted because I had a baby n don’t know if he is dead or alive when I woke up I was in an institution my heart cry’s everyday for my child it’s hard to know that your insides our gone n you were cheated out of life for getting the chance to be a mother

  • I had my hysterectomy 2 weeks ago and I am only 29. It was hard to accept but im in good spirits now, but shuu the constipation was the hardest coz I also suffered from hemorrhoids and that was the worst.

  • I had my hysterectomy in dec of 2019. I had my uterus removed along with my tubes. Best decision ever. No scars. It was done vaginally. I would do it again in a heart beat. No periods is amazing. I have four daughters so no more children for me.

  • Thank you for this even tho it’s old.. I’m gong through same thing.. I’ll be 46 years old in May..I got my tubiligation done 17 years ago and I suffer from really bad periods, I cry when I’m cramping cuz it feel like I’m in labor….so I’m really thinking bout having this procedure done

  • I’m 35 and I have had uncontrollable bleeding for about 7 years. I almost had to have a blood transfusion. I have had one other surgery, tried pills to stop the bleeding and birth control pills. Unfortunately it all failed. So I had to have it done this past jan 31 2019. Really sucks hearing that this stuff could happen. My Doctor never told me the side effects. I’m in Gods hands. I cant undo the surgery.

  • This week I went to see one of the only endometriosis specialists that take my insurance (Dr. Veronica Lerner in the Bronx yep, I want people to know her name!), and I left holding back tears. I went there for simple laparascopic excision surgery, but she threw me a leaflet about uterine removal surgery right after I walked in, on my previous appointment. I had an MRI done at her request, which showed very small adenomyosis growth. On this second visit, her eyes looked as dead and cold as ever, and I felt intimidated and afraid of her as before, though I could not tell why. She insisted on hysterectomy. I told her it’s important to me not to have hysterectomy unless I have no other choice at all, because sensuality and sex are important to me and I know that uterine contractions factor very heavily in orgasms. She said that there are no studies showing that the uterus plays any role in orgasms. There were numerous micro aggressions towards me on her part, and I picked up on all of them (thank god for high sensitivity). When I said that I was flatly not interested in removing my uterus, she suddenly gave me back all my papers, stiffened up, and said that she does not feel “comfortable” with going ahead without a hysterectomy. All of it was very manipulative, and she struck me as an abusive person. Her reviews are generally positive. I have to believe that she shows her true colors only to those that have my type of health insurance and therefore cannot make her money. I would not want to be the patient of such a doctor, even if I had good insurance. Why monetarily support a person that abuses others?

  • Absolutely, I agree with what she said I’m not worried about what could happen afterwards, I did something for me and my family so I can be here pain free raising them. ���� ���� ���� ��

  • You gave me the push I needed when I watched one of your videos.you were talking and crying and saying how miserable life was…I felt you. Well to let you know as of now I am uterus free fallopian tube free and cervix free. I’m on 10 days of recuperation.so far everything is going good I thought I had a UTI I do not.I don’t know if the sensation of having to pee is a recuperating thing,?let me know if you had this in your recovery time frame? Thank you again for all your courage which gave me courage ❤️��

  • You have to do what’s best for you body. I’m glad you’re happy with your life. I have two awesome children. My heart goes out to women who don’t have children and have to have this surgery! I’m scheduling my surgery soon. God bless you all and may you prosper in life and health in the name of Jesus!!!!! Amen!

  • I am will be scheduled for hysterectomy next week. Due to my atypical endometrial hyperplasia. It was really a hard decision since I still don’t have a child. I am only 36. ������

  • October 4th is my big day!! I’m also a vibrant young woman(42yrs old) who has a long life ahead of me but was constantly being tied down due to my health issues surrounding my bicorniate uterus. Horrible pain,horrible periods, that lasted at least 3weeks!!! Clotting and always having migraines sucked the life outta me!! Blood transfusions were always in my future because hemoglobin levels were extremely low! Soooo,I’m finally gonna do it,it’s time. My children are grown, my baby boy is going to college soon, and I have one new grandchild that needs me in his life! My husband and I talked and talked about it before I went to see a gynecologist and this is what she said” that F-er needs to come out”!! Please pray for me!!! Oh and your video was soooo helpful!! I am having the Davinci hysterectomy done in two weeks!!

  • Hi, did you have an abdominal open surgery or laparoscopic? I am scheduled for abdominal as my fibroid is nearly 9 cm and I have a thickened walls of uterus so they think they won’t take it out laparoscopically but they will see what they can do. I am scared but listening to you I think it’s the best thing…

  • I had mine’s done in 2018 i couldn’t take the heavy bleeding an pain at the age of 50..thinking that i would slow down as i got older.. but know it got worse..so i had it done..now i didn’t have my ovaries removed but i had my tubes an uries removed an i feel great..

  • I know this is an old post, Just have a question. I had LVAH August last year and Sex is Absolutely Painful almost like shocking nerve pain. I was wondering if you experienced Painful sex after if so, How long did you feel better?

  • I’m FINALLY getting a partial hysterectomy in February after almost 10 years of pain that got worse year after year. I am so relieved I finally got a doctor who listened to me… I feel like I have a chance at a normal life again. This video made me cry watching u tell ur story bc I KNOW that feeling that’s exactly what I’ve been going through

  • Thank you so much for taking your time to post this video and tell about your experience. I had an hysterectomy a week ago but they cut across my bikini line, he kept my ovaries due to me being young. The glow on your face make me feel better about my decision

  • Thank you for sharing. I have hysterectomy on Monday 7/31/2017. I have problem like you. I feel a little scare but watch your video I feel better

  • Thanks for telling your story. I was suppose to have the surgery last year but I’m so afraid of the pain. But you’ve helped me to make the choice to have it done this year. God Bless You!����

  • I have had one. At first I was scared because I did not want to be put “under” but now I’m happy I had it., no more periods for me. I have not had any children, but I guess children are not meant for everyone.

  • I know this won’t be an option for every woman, but before you have a hysterectomy, ask your Gynecologist about the Mirena IUD. If you have something like endometrial hyperplasia or precancerous endometrial tissue, the Mirena thins the lining of your uterus and reduces your risk of developing cancer. It is even the first step in combating stage 1 uterine cancer that has not spread beyond the endometrium (this in conjunction with some medications is used when a woman is trying to preserve fertility). Now, it is not a permanent solution, but not can hold off when you have a hystercomy depending upon your own personal medical needs. Please ask about this first if you have concerns. It could be an option. If your gyno isn’t at least willing to talk to you about it or explain why this or similar treatments would t work in your own scenario, get a second, third, or fourth opinion. A good doctor will always explain every potential option (that has been medically tested) or explain why it is t an option.

  • In any case if there IS an alternative for this operation..try it first!! Do research!! In my case..where every specialist told me it is prestage of cancer, there was no other option or long wait. In my case a video like this is not too relaxing..but what could I do?

  • I Red hysterectomy is pretty awful you get early menopauze, decreased libido, depression the list goes on. Doctors are trying to sell it hard because it lines their pockets.

  • I understand the struggle. I’m currently dealing with a similar situation. My hysterectomy is scheduled this month. I’m in my late 30s with no kids but I’m ok with it.

  • After lifelong endometriosis since 14 years old, and adenomyosis last 20 years, hemoglobin was at 5 (normal is >12.5), and quality of life was that of a terminally ill, bed ridden person waiting to die for the excruciating pain to end. Never considered hysterectomy.

    The first month into recovery and no menses, no pain, no cramping, no nausea, no migraine, no nothing! It was surreal. They say side effects include obesity, high blood pressure and heart issues. Her blood pressure has always been hyper low, so I welcome something higher. Has always been pencil thin from all the loss every month and not being able to catch up, that I’d welcome some weight gain. Heart issues are related to eating healthy saturated fats (Look up Weston A Price foundation, and research the ketogenic diet developed by the Mayo Clinic) and not getting enough vitamin C (ideally sodium ascorbate crystals are better than ascobic acid form, but if using the Vit C patch, the ascobic acid by passes the gut so it’s fine).
    What amazes me is that this is affecting 1 in five women, presently, yet there is nearly zero information out there. New studies show that radiation, EMF and Wifi have an effect on severity as well. Even after all my digging to truly understand endometriosis and adenomyosis, no one has a clue about the root cause. Some sources say early exposure to DDT can cause this. How can we be so “advanced” and so clueless about something so basic?

  • I 100% understand what you went through I’m 50yrs and I had one 3 weeks ago. I had a over size uterus and it was so full of fibroids the doctor said I had no room for a baby to grow. I had two periods a month and I was wearing the purple pads and soaking them with in 45 minutes. I had to sleep in adults diapers to keep from messing up my bed. Sex with my husband was so painful I had to take Motrin 800 when we we’re done. I feel so much better now, I can’t believe I put it off four years ago. GOD BLESS you & Thanks for sharing your story.

  • Did the hysterectomy cause the heart problems, or are they comorbidities with the conditions that lead to hysterectomy?

    The alternative option for me is birth control pills, which increase my risk for stroke. Either way, I am doomed. I’ll take the hysterectomy.

  • I’m so happy to hear that you feel so great after your surgery! I am the owner of a what my doctor calls an “overachiever” uterus and a ton of fibroids (three big ones), and just want this OVER WITH! Mine will be an open surgery, but even though it is, I’m focusing on the fact that I might feel normal again someday! Thanks for sharing your story!
