24 Years Old and Hysterectomy

im 24 years old and i am going to find out in a few days if the dr is gonna take everything out... i have no children and not sure if i want any... the problem that i am having is my periods are painful and heavy. the pain is so bad, it feels as if someone is stabbing my ovaries and my uterus is being ripped right out of my body... the gyno told me i have options but no promises that they will stop the pain... my only option that i have that will make the pain stop is a full hysterectomy... im 24 years old... i am scared to death... but the pain is so bad i double over in pain and agony... my boyfriend told me it wont change anything between us and if we decide we want kids in the future we can adopt...

i was told that having this done it will change a lot of things about me and i don't want to take a chance in anything going bad.. i know they do a lot of them but it feels like i have a lot of bad luck in my life. i miss carried at age 16 which is something i don't like to think/talk about, but ugh, im sorry to whoever reads this for just ranting like this but i am so so so scared and i don't know what to do... the dr said that even tho there are options out there this is the only one..

can i get some advice as to what i should do??

Re: 24 Years Old and Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy for a 24 year old is very drastic. I suggest that you get a 2nd opinion.

Re: 24 Years Old and Hysterectomy

Re: 24 Years Old and Hysterectomy

Hi I also have been recommended to have a hysterctomy and I know how you feel it is hard to decide to have a hysterctomy. I have asked to see a specialist outside my local medical group to way up my options.you can ask for a second option outside your medical group to see if there is any alternatives suitable for yourself. I have suffered for 12 years for endo problems and very heavy bleeding and cramps. Have you Tryed a mirena coil in a lot of cases it can reduce periods and in some cases women bleed very little or not at all. My sister had one in for 5 years and didn't have any periods. Hope this maybe usefull.

Re: 24 Years Old and Hysterectomy

That's a Shame because it could last for 5 years and be taken out if you did want children in the future.I know I have Tryed lots of different treatments over the 12 years and I have now been offered a hysterctomy but I am seeing a specialist in endo for one last option before a have a hysterctomy.I Do hope things get better for you soon.
