Hi and I have a bum, tired, diseased uterus. LOL I was diagnosed with Adeno. maybe 5 years ago and it has gotten worse of course. I never had any symptoms other than heavy periods and suddenly, my pelvis hurts 24 - 7. I look pregnant and don't even recognize myself. I've been told I have Fibroids and Cysts. Now, normally, anyone would say GET A HYSTERECTOMY! Right? Here is the thing, I"m 47 and soooo close to Menopause. My doctor told me after M, this usually clears itself up. She wants to give me the Mirena IUD to help with periods. I have really bad anxiety and of course, this isn't helping!!! I"m terrified to have surgery. I had a C Section with my only child and had a horrible experience with the drugs to numb me. Does anyone have experience with the Mirena? THANK YOU!!!

I have the Mirena. It mostly works. I still have some days where I feel crampy, but I imagine this is what a normal crampy period feels like, as opposed to I feel like I'm going to die, curled up in a little ball crying, crampy period. lol I don't think I've had any side effects with it, but I've heard some people do. Good luck with your decision!

Hello,

I don't have any experience with Mirena but I'm in the exact same situation. I didn't have any kid and I'm 50 years old. I have a fibroid, 2 cysts on an ovary, adenomyosis and endometiosis. At the age of 46 years old, I started to have very heavy periods and I was anemic by the age of 48. I was prescribed the birth pill and had terrible migraines. But at least, the periods were ok. So, after a year of migraines, my obgyn talked me into the uterine ablation (winter 2010). In may 2011, I had it done (Nova Sure) and was period free during 11 months. Then, the nightmare began.

I suddenly started to bleed in June 22, 2012. I called my doctor, she said it could happen. Nothing to worry about, she said. But, I bled during a month. Then my mom passed away during that period and I had a uti just after the funeral. The pain was abnormal. But I trusted my doctor until I spent a month in pain (vulvodynia, spasms, burning urine, swelling of the clitoris - sorry to be so graphic). I went to another obgyn that told me I was going through menopause and had "vaginal dryness". I was prescribed Vagifem 10 mcg twice a week. No danger, he said. I was on it for 2 months and a half and the pain was fluctuating with my cycle even if I was using HRT. So, I started by the end of January 2013 to bleed a lot during my periods for a woman who had uterine ablation. He stopped me, I had hot flashed.

March 2013, I go to another obgyn and had another exam, he sees nothing wrong in my vagina but I feel pain on the left side, a nerve pain, mostly when I'm sitting. He told me I shouldn't have been off the Vagifem. He puts me back on it and at the end of May 2013, I stopped gradually because it was getting worse. I had breast pain, bloating, muscle and nerve pain in my pelvic area. I had an MRI with contrast prescribed by my rhumatologist and it's this doctor that found the fibroid and the cysts on the labia.

August 2013, I see another woman obgyn and she made a detailed ultrasound, told me I had adeno and endo, 2 cysts on the ovary and a small fibroid. She told me I needed an hysterectomy after explaining what these two diseases were. The HRT made my conditons worsen. I am now estrogen dominant. I told her that I wouldn't take the risk of another surgery so close to menopause.

I decided to take care of myself and go with the natural way to heal. I'm following a diet (dairy free, cafeine free, sugar free, gluten free and meat free). I use a progesterone cream 21 day by cycle. I take serrapeptase (enzyme that breaks down fibrous tissue), DIM (concentrate of brocoli, cauliflower and cabbage), I don't eat eggs just sea food, sardines and salmon. Every food that is metabolized in estrogen (dairy, sweets, caffeine, processed meats are the baddest) I banned it. The DIM is known to rebalance the hormones. The serrapeptase is an anti-inflammatory that is gradually kicking in right now. If you know what is endometriosis and adenomyosis, the fibrous abnormal cells that create these conditions launch an auto-immune reaction which bring inflammation (vulva, urethra). Then your uterus grows bigger every cycle then put pressure on your pelvic area, etc. Right now, I'm now at my 21 days of my cycle and I didn't bloat. My breast isn't painful like it's been since a year. Baby steps! I have a little inflammation that I control with yoga and stretching. I learned how to relax and to take it day by day...until my menopause set me free. They won't cut me and cause me any kind of "complications" (hurting the bladder or intestines) with an hysterectomy. I can manage to be "vegan" and patient until my menopaue is achieved. I will get old with all my hair and I won't spend my retirement with a diaper.

It's your choice to have an hysterectomy or anything else. But you have another choice, maybe a little bit toughe but a lot safer. Try just to cut cafeine and sweets to see if you get better...Me, I shoudn't have had the ablation and the Vagifem. Now, I have to go extreme.

Good luck and be brave. Sorry about my English.

Sincerely <3

You should read the post I just posted here.
I should also note, that I have really bad anxiety, and so far the "coctail" of supplements I've been taking have helped with that too. I haven't had any pms symptoms or any anxiety or anything. It's insane.
Evening Primrose Oil & Natural Progesterone Cream (from a drug store) are both good for pre-menopausal symptoms as well. You should do some research. Also a friend of mine going through something similar to you recommended a book to me "What your doctor doesn't tell you about pre-menopause" and that details why you should try natural progesterone cream too.
Maybe look into it?

My partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; babaka.wolf@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in January 2013 or February 2013,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Babaka, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine.

Hello everyone,My name is Tina Grand.i am here to share my testimony on how i conceived my baby. I have been married to my husband for 3 years without no child. We have been to the doctor and it was confirmed that the both of us are in good condition. I had problems with my in-laws because of the child issue. I was introduced to MAMA DADA HERBAL HOME by a friend who lives here in America. I contacted her and explained my problems to her.MAMA DADA HERBAL HOME told me all that is required and i did it accordingly. I was very surprise to test positive after 2 weeks of contacting her.

my testimony

HELLO everyone Have you been going through a lot in your relationship lately as a result of sudden change in your spouse attitude towards you ? If "YES",the end has come to that problem that keeps you awake when you are suppose to be asleep. When people you know to be nice and caring suddenly begins to act in a cruel manner there is need to ask questions such as, what exactly is wrong with my spouse ? Is this problem spiritual ? These and many questions that would cross ones mind at some point. I was in that kind of a confused state at some point in my relationship that I felt the weight of the world was resting on my shoulder, I was abandoned by my hubby when our son was 3 weeks. He left us for no reason. Though I wasn't too sure of what exactly would make him leave us I felt it was something extra ordinary(spiritual) that must have taken place in his memory. I was asked to contact this address to get help,(jumbaherbalis@yahoo.com), as soon as I did all my problem was sorted out. I can categorically state here that the kind gesture of (jumbaherbalis@yahoo.com) . has helped me restore my family. Thanks to Dr JUMBA.
