So here I am almost 3 years later and on the brink of menopause.I have 7 children of my own, the youngest is 18.I'm DONE!!!! I'm soooo done with all this mess!!! 5/13/2010 I will be at the dr. discussing surgery.I don't feel safe taking hormone meds,it makes me crazy.I've explored my options and the best option for me is to have everything removed.I have read alot of testomonies about uterine ablazion and it's not for me.I strongly advise that you do some research on WEBMD.I'm hoping you have an understanding ob/gyn.Bleeding is a scarey thing especially when it interupts everyday activity.Please believe me when I tell you are not alone, and you will find that out as you research female issues.stay calm,rest,drink plenty of fluids 40 oz. a day and nutrition .remember to eat right.God Bless! and stay well!!! firstname.lastname@example.org I look forword to your response!View Thread
