I suffer from PCOS and Endometriosis stage 3. My son was a miracle and my daughter is adopted. We TTC from the time my son was 3 until a month before we began the adoption proceedings for our daughter so I think about 4 years.
In my heart I know I can't conceive another child and I know there are other alternatives should we choose to expand our family which isn't in the cards that I know of.
So why then am I still so reluctant to have the hysterectomy I need to have? I have railed against it for so many years I think I am now just railing against it to do so and it really would solve so many problems for me health wise. So why can't I just let go and do it?
I just keep thinking, it's so final and I'm so young, and I am running out of excuses in the "no" category while the reasons in the "yes" category are getting more and more significant.
What would you do if you knew you were done having kids, and you knew it would help you in areas you struggle in, weight, crippling cramps, skin tags, emotional issues, etc...? Would you struggle like I have with the decision or would it be an easy one for you?
