Hi out there! I am 31 an have 2 beautiful babies, who were born prematurely. I have endometriosis an a number of other health problems. I got the Essure procedure done last year. Now my Doctor has suggested a hysterctomy. It has been scheduled for Nov 21st!! The day before Thanksgiving! While I know it needs to be done, I am nervous an not wanting to be away from my girls on the holiday. I also think I am a little young... Anyone else around my age had this surgery?

Your gonna love it! They will most likely leave one tube and ovary so you don't need to worry about hormone replacement.

Yep! I had one last year at 29, to be exact. I was about a month from turning 30.

I had mine done at 35... my sister was 32... we kept our ovaries so you don't need hormone replacement. I love love love not having the horrible painful heavy periods anymore. I felt like I was a woman again after all I went through.

I had mind at 35. Still have my ovaries! Life is so much nicer now! Hystersisters.com Is such great website for info and support. You can join a support network of other women who had their procedure on the same day/week.

That seems really radical to me.  I would get a 2nd opinion before I had something like that done. Good luck with whatever you decide.
