Firstly let me just say that I had the total hysterectomy and oopherectomy done over a year ago privately and so I am not suggesting that I wasnt aware of the possibility that it could cause some questions about my actions.
I am happy I chose this way. I do not refret my decision and now at 29 having had this done just after turning 28 I feel my life has become so much better. It was a personal decision based on my individual medical history, family history and personal circumstances.
I am aware of the shock my decision could give others as well as the fact that as I have no children and have had the oopherectomy I will be in no position to have biological children of my own. For many i am sure my decision would be a great disappointment regarding this matter alone.
I am however blessed with a wonderful family and good close friends. I am surrounded by children in both my nieces and my best friends children. Although it may sound harsh to others (it is not ment to be) a child being biologically my own has never been of great importance. If i decide to have children, fostering and/or adoption is available.
What I am asking is this....If I were to start dating someone at what point should this subject be broached?
It would be rather offputting to throw this at someone the first time you go on a date i would imagine....with the other believing that I was some insane woman trying to dig my claws in before anything had started.
However i dont believe in not telling someone something this important if they had ideas for a future i couldnt give them.
So what do you think?
Your advise or thoughts please.
This is more of a musing as I am not currently looking to date atm.
