Newcomer just saying hello and wanting to hear your experiences!
Hello, ladies. My name is Jessica, and I am a 30 year old single mother of 3. I am due to have a full hysterectomy on April 18th. It is an elective surgery, as I have suffered for years with extremely heavy bleeding during my cycle, along with cramps that feel like labor pains and endometriosis. I am reading some pretty scary stuff about women who undergo this procedure before the age of 50.. actually I am reading some pretty scary stuff all the way around. I guess I am mainly looking for women around my age who have had hysterectomies so I can get some straightforward answers. My main concerns are the increased risk of hardening of the cartoid artery, failing ovaries(they are only taking my uterus and cervix), changes in sex drive and ability to climax. I look forward to talking with you ladies and getting to know you all better. Any input is most welcome. Thank you! <3
