I am new to the forum and asking for advice and experiences on a decision to have a hysterectomy or not. I have been suffering for 7yrs with endometriosis and had numerous laser surgeries. Now, after having 2 children, i am on a tri cycle contriceptive pill - then have break - i bleed on and off towards the end of my pill and for the past 6 months i have been having terrible migraines down the right side of my head. I have today been to my Drs and she has taken me off my pill as she thinks there is a high risk of stroke - linked to my migraine / face pain ! She has changed me to a progesterone only pill, but if this doesnt work then i will be refered back to my hospital - where they have said the only option would be a hysterectomy. With this i have concerns of having a major operation at only 37 yrs old and that i would be put on HRT after. I have a family history of problems on HRT and with having to come off the pill due to risk of a stroke this worries me too ! I am a fit and healthy woman who works as a nurse with no other illness's - just this endometriosis !!!!!! Please - if any one that can help me with advice and info ……. im so concerned of the unknown!!! Thanks in advance :o)
