No winning answer

I actually am feeling better, and I thank you all for your support, comments, emails, and everything else.  Now that most of the pain is gone, I'm left just left with my frustration with the whole situation.  Basically, I don't have a ton of options.

Option #1 — Just keep flipping birth controls when it quits stopping my periods.  I've been through either 6 or 8 of them in two years already.

Option #2 (aff) — Get an ablation done.  That basically burns out the lining of your uterus.  It doesn't work well on young women (per my OBGYN).  I would still have to use birth control or buy condoms, because I cannot take the chance of getting pregnant. The cost I think is in the $20,000 range. I would lose my fertility.

Option #3 (aff) — After reading about ablation, I started doing research on a partial hysterectomy.  My OBGYN did not suggest it but it would solve most of my problems (I think). I wouldn't have to worry about having to buy condoms online or getting pregnant. But I'd be 32 and without a uterus. I am pretty sure we are done having kids. Plus, I don't know if my OBGYN will even do it.

Option #4 — This last option was suggest to me from my chiropractor and that is to see a natural doctor. She gave me a name and her brochure. I am really wondering if I should look into this since one of the treatments she does is for natural female hormone balancing.  I am pretty sure my insurance won't cover it, so this would be all out of pocket.  However, if it works, I would be one happy camper.

If any of you have done any of my option, I'd love to hear from you.  I'm obviously frustrated, and I don't feel like there is a right answer.

  1. In my humble, non-medical opinion, I think you should do both. Have the ablation to help get rid of lining problems, then see the naturopath about bio-identical hormones to help stabilize everything.

  2. I am glad you are feeling better. I would start with the naturopath and I really need to find one myself for "girl" problems. If you do, please share what the naturopath says. I'll be really interested to hear about your experience.
