Postmenopausal at age 31!
|To women who
have had early hysterectomy, remember you are still a whole women.
I was only 25 when after two D&Cs and two cyst removals the doctor
told me nothing else was going to help except a hysterectomy. Well, I
was thinking to myself this cannot be right. I am too young, and this
is something for older women. But I had been having my period for almost
a year straight and was really getting very sick from it.
So I went and had it done. Now I am 31 years old and have every side
effect of menopause that is possible. I am not married but do have a boyfriend
that is talking marriage, and I do not know what to do because I do not
have any desire to have sex. This is not saying that I do not love him,
but I do not know what to do.
I am not on hormone replacement anymore because it was not working for
me, and my migraines were worse on the medication. I know that I can do
things about this but I do not know what to do. Please help!
To women who have had early hysterectomy, remember you are still a whole
women, and God did not just put us here to have kids but also to raise
them and teach them His ways. I am thankful to have had 3 wonderful children
(a son and two daughters) before this happened.
Good luck to everyone!
