Hysteroscopy

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ok has anybody had this procedure? I am 59 and still having irregular periods. Older women in my family who still have their uterus, went until 57, 58. I also have fibroids. Doc said she isn't worried but I am!! She said she just wants to check thickness and fibroids. Pap was normal. Trying not to freak out like I have been doing lately with any ache, pain or sensation.

    Hello Katy,

    I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 40

    Due to fibroids. They are harmless but for some people they can be painful depending on the size and where they are .... in my case I had one the size of a golfball one the size of a lemon which both were putting pressure on my ovaries and causing me to have heavy periods. I felt better after but now I'm dealing with other issues from menopause.

    I had fibroids removed this way about 6 years ago. It’s was relatively simple. Took 3-4 days to feel somewhat normal. There were activity restrictions for a week or two, but no pain after a few days.

      Yes!!! Thanks so much for your response! I was beginning to be afraid of pain because some ladies were saying they had general anesthesia, which I do not want. But my doc never mentioned that, she said she would do it in her office and it would take about 10 minutes.

      So thanks for sharing your experience!

    I had one a few years ago, no anesthesia and had my period, was done in gynos office. Honestly, it’s a little uncomfortable but I took some ibuprofen before I had it done and went to work right after. I felt fine the rest of the day. Hope that helps!
