I am 52, have had hotflashes for 2 years. Went off the Pill a year ago and since then I have had extremely heavy bleeding. Periods last 10-16 days. Unpredicatable cycles, anywhere from 2 weeks between periods up to 3 months.
I have tried diet, I have tried various supplements. Latest try was progesterone cream which did seem to help.
Doc decided to do tests. I had all kinds of blood work done, an edo biopsy, a pelvis ultrasound. finds were that I have 2 very small fybroids and one tuiny cyst, all blood work was good. Doc wants to consider surgery and has suggested a endometrial ablation. However, I have done some research and I am not encouraged. many women who have had endometrial ablation have found that the poroceedure did not do as they had wished and many ended up having a hysterectomy.
My doctor today told me that many women end up having hysterectomies becasue nothign will stop their bleeding.
I am wanting some input. Have you had a endometrial ablation? What was your outcome? Hysterectomy? Was it a good choice? Was your doc hesitant? Mine says they like to keep the organs if possible. Is there any way that more blood work can be done to predict the end?
Any helpful advise would be appreciated. If you ahve found something that works please let me know.
