Many people have cramps during their menstruation– it’s just an uncomfortable side effect. But for some people that condition can be incredibly painful- to the point of unbearable. They may be unable to get out of bed or go to work. Their life turns to a standstill while they lay curled up in their bed. Does this sound familiar? If so, a hysterectomy can be a chance for freedom from this pain. No one can afford to take off a whole week out of every month to go through wretched pain, and they shouldn’t have to. A hysterectomy gives you the freedom to get back to your life, back to work and back to your families.
A hysterectomy patient named Tye shared her story on Hysterectomy.org, and said, “You can do it, and you’ll be happy that you did. If you have painful, heavy periods, do it. You’ll regain your energy. You’ll get your life back. And for some of us, like me, who thought it was normal to feel sluggish, or to have horrid periods, you’ll actually begin your life anew. You’ll become the person you’ve always wanted to be and not plan your life around your period.”
Some people even experience prolonged periods, with some women stating that they only felt good about one week out of the month. Abnormally long or heavy periods are called menorrhagia. It is recommended that you see a doctor, just to be sure it isn’t something more serious, and to seek treatment for these issues. There are several reasons why a woman would experience painful cramping or longer periods. And while there are several treatments that you can try before a hysterectomy, the surgery may be the long term easier solution to help you get your life back.
