| | your opinion - long post
I just went and saw my OB/GYN for an annual exam and questions regarding my irregular periods. My cycles range anywhere from 29-42days. Right now I'm at 50 day cycle and waiting. I'm not pregnant since my husband had a vasectomy almost 6 years ago and I have taken a test. When i do get a period, they are heavy and painful and last 5 days. The reason for my heavy and painful periods he says my uterus in enlarged. He said enlargement of the uterus happens to some when you have kids (I have 3 girls). He gave me two options. One, try hormone therapy for 3 months to jump start it or two, hysterectomy. I opted for the hormone therapy. He has put my on Prometrium to get my to have a period, he also put me on BCP, Yasmin. He never did any blood work or ultrasound. He just did a normal exam. I have been with this doctor for 10 years and love him dearly. I trust options he gave but feel a little uneasy about the hysterectomy. I am only 31. I am overweight but my periods have never been a problem before. Anyone else feel I should get a second opinion?
