  • I had one in 2002. I had it due to fibroids/polyps/endometriosis. Yup...good decision. I only had my uterus removed. I still have my cervix/tubes/ovaries. Im 51, haven't gone through "menopause" yet, haven't used hormones.

  • I had a partial hysterectomy in 2001 because of fibroids.  I've felt great ever since and I sure don't miss periods.

  • I had a total one almost 2 years ago. I had fibroids and Endometriosis. To be honest, I never realized how many problems I was having until I didn't have them anymore. Instant menopause was no fun, but so much more manageable than the problems before.
