Hi, I am new here, I need advise. I'm 48, have 3 children and I had an endometrial ablation 6 years ago and everything went well and have been period free since!! however 12 months ago I started to get the odd bit of spotting quite randomly but also sometimes after intercourse. GP referred me to Gynae, I have had colposcopy - result fine but said I had a 'spongy' cervix? , Ultrasound scan - polyp found and possible fibroid tissue and that led to last week when I went for hysteroscopy under GA - when I came round was told they couldn't access my womb as my cervix was fused shut and they couldn't get access. So this week I see Gynae consultant for follow up and was told the only option now is Hysterectomy, which she is referring me for URGENTLY, she suggests laparoscopic (however they may do the large cut if they encounter problems), and she suggests taking everything out including ovaries and cervix and then going on HRT for 3 years.
I'm really concerned as whether taking my ovaries and cervix is necessary. Albeit I do get very painful ovary twinge every month there is no family history of ovarian cancer. I also enjoy a fantastic sex life with my husband so don't want anything to affect it after the op - been told having my cervix removed will shorten my vagina and have read having it removed can stop you form orgasming also!! and I have no family history of cervical cancer either.
Really need some qualitative advise so I can make an informed decision of what to do.
