I'm 53 and have had a hysterectomy several years ago due to heavy bleeding. I bleed for about 35 days before I seeked help from a doctor. Went to the ER and they had to give me 2 pints of blood. Totally crazy on my part because I do have insurance and did at the time. Then I went to see my OB/GYN and she put me on birth control, I really didn't like that answer, I sure didn't want to bleed any more. Well now I have gone through and still going through the hot flashes, night sweats and terrible aniexty and just plan feeling crazy at times. I never did decide to go on HRT or anything else for that matter. I have always had bad reactions to drugs and do not like to take them. I now am going to try a different doctor next week to see if there is any change in my hormone level. Which I seriously doubt. They always say your levels are fine.. Thats whats so aggravating, don't these doc's know? Just found this discussion group which I am so grateful for some people to talk to that I can actually relate to.
