I am 27 years old and happily married with 2 kids. My husband and I have made a decision not to have any more children. First, I bled for 4 months straight after having my son. I tried Mirena and bled heavily and had extreme cramps. Then I tried Loestrin, which controlled the bleeding, but cramping was through the roof. After 5 months of that, I tried Ortho-tricyclen for 3 months and had heavy periods and horrible cramping. On both birth control medicines, I was very depressed, fatigued, just not a good experience for me and do not want to take bc again. So now I have had 3 months of normal periods, bleeding has been fine and cramps are still bad. My Dr. said she would do a tubal ligation for me, but a high percentage of women will experience heavier bleeding and worse cramps than before. So, she wants to do the NovaSure with it...I'm very concerned about the complications of NovaSure and do not want to end up having a hysterectomy at age 27. In fact, she herself, had the NovaSure done a little over a year ago...within the past week she just had a hysterectomy. I don't know the cause, but I hope it wasn't the NovaSure. Has anyone younger had either of these procedures done, and how is it working for you?View Thread
