As women why do we allow ourselves to suffer with all of the medical technology available?

I have several friends who suffer with their menstrual cycle. Why I ask? While you don’t have to have a hysterectomy, there is no reason to suffer. I tell my family and friends, call your doctor and get some help. We are not living in our mother’s time when they suffered quietly.

For menopause, so far New Phase works for me. I’m not a representative of the product by no means at all. But I have been taking it since 2003 when the night sweats started. It is all natural and it works.  

So ladies, we are all too precious to suffer when there is help available.  

Take care!

    • I was bleeding for three months straight and almost needed a blood transfusion.  So I talked to my OBGYN - he did a procedure called Oblation - it is non evasive, yet I did not need a hysterectomy.  Now I did not have a period and I was thinking about using all the left over pads as white elephant gifts that Maryclark taught me.  Of course, like what Tracy said, always talk to your OBGYN and see which method is good for you particulary.

    • Chinadoll I had an Oblation in 2000. It was great and improved my quality of life for the last 8 years, until the fibroids showed up and I had a hysterectomy.

      Good for you and I am happy you are doing better.

    • thank you leadingladytracy for this topic.  i had to have a d&c because of excessive bleeding as well, but i had let it go on because when it began, i was out of a job (so no health insurance), had no money to go to the dr or clinic, so i had to suffer through it until i could do better.  it’s not that we don’t want to, sometimes it’s that we‘re not able to, or society makes it difficult to...

    • Tori, don’t apologize, I had a partial hysto in 99 and girl, I have enjoyed life even more since then.  I was tired of the pain and heavy bleeding and definitely was not game about taking the pills/drugs, etc.

      I am not an advocate, but if anyone think it would work for them, I would say, go for it...

    • Teeky, I still have my ovaries, so that makes it partial.  Don’t make it an option unless you have too.  I still have never had hot flashes or anything that supposedly is associated with the change, but not having that period every month is a blessing

    • I agree and wish I had my surgery when I had the oblation done. But my doctor did not want to take out any organs unless absolutely necessay frown.

      So 8 years later she ended up doing it.

      Psalmist I agree about the health insurance. This nation really should be ashamed of itself that our health insurance plans are so poor.

      Hopefully with our new President that is one issue that will be resolved.
