When I went for my check up my doctor told me I need to have a hysterectomy since last year tests showed my ovaries were not working and this past year I started having more periods and she was concerned it could be cancer. When they ran some tests on me every thing came back fine. Her physicians assistant called me and said if I'm still having periods by the age of 54, I'm 52 then definitely I need a hysterectomy. I'm really confused and concerned. Why am I having periods and why am I getting two different responses from the doctors? Has anyone else experienced this?View Thread
Correct, I have not gone a full year without a period. In 2011 I went 8 months without a period and this past year I have had more periods but still very irregular. They did a pelvic ultrasound, blood test for cancer and another test where they went in to get a specimen from inside my uterus. Everything is normal. So yes I believe I will be switching doctors.View Thread
