I told my GYN that lately when I ovulate I experience pain. So she immediately ordered an ultrasound which I had on March 17th. The results showed that I had multiple fibroids in my uterus. When I went back for my follow up I told my doctor I wanted a hysterectomy. He said that my fibroids aren't very large and for someone my age they don't really recommend a hysterectomy as a first line of treatment. He recommended a hormonal treatment i.e., birth control. His first recommendation was the Mirena implant. I don't like the idea of anything being inserted because I have heard how much complications those types of things can cause. He also mentioned getting the depo shot or Lupron shot. But the only way I would be a candidate for the Lupron shots was if I was indeed going through perimenopause. So he drew some blood to test my LH and FSH. I got the results back from that yesterday which were all within normal limits. When I go back to see him I'm going to ask him if I can just get on the mini pill. I know he may try to insist on the Mirena implant but the only thing that will do is stop the heavy bleeding it doesn't really address the issues of the fibroids themselves. I don't want to do a depo shot because all the side effects that are associated with it. So I figured the least problematic form of treatment for me would be the mini pill.
