I had a partial hysterectomy 4 1/2 years ago. It was supposed to be a full hysterectomy (the left ovary and fallopian tube were gone anyway, from the ectopic pregnancy), but at the last moment, the dr decided I was too young for menopause (24 at the time - the same age as my mother when she had her hysterectomy)and left the ovary. I was furious when I woke up and he told me! Even he admitted it would probably have to come out in a few years - so my position was, why not go ahead and do it now when you're already taking the rest out?!

As for the rest of the hysterectomy, I'm awfully glad I had it. No more periods and the extra pain - there's enough of that without adding any more unnecessarily.

Jessica: If you're thinking re having both ovaries out, what about having a hysterectomy? I couldn't do anything when I had my period. It just made everything 100 times worse. I'm 36, w/no children living, have had a full hysterectomy & don't miss my period at all...& no, you don't grow facial hairs or lose your feminimity or your sexuality (although it doen';t make sex any less painful). It's been almost 6 years now. I take Ricola WOmen's Health formula w/Soy, Calcium & Black Cohosh (for well-being) as replacement hormones (new herbal line in tablet form). Drugs like premarin, if you have endomitriosis, can make that condition worse. It was out of the question for me, the endomitriosis is inside my adhesions. I aso drink Soy as a milk substitute & it's not that bad. I'm used to it. They also have a chocolate soy drink called 'Silk' by white Wave. VERY delicious!! Just a thought.. I figure, while they're in there have it all done. They took me piece by piece & I'd like to kick them all in the you know ehere! Blessed Be. Karla B.
