The post My hysterectomy journey – Marianne’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. My hysterectomy journey has not been straight forward. I’d been experiencing serious problems with flooding with urine when I had a cold since my son was born 12 yrs ago. When I sought help yrs later, it was put down to pelvic floor problems. Because I couldn’t cope with the intensity of physio requirements, with no scans I was declined surgery. Over the past 2-3 years I developed problems with my bowels and every morning, had to make frequent visits to the loo, with the occasional ‘accident&rs...

The post My abdominal hysterectomy nightmare – Fiona’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I am 48 years old with 4 children. I have always been fortunate to have nice normal periods but this changed around 3 years ago when they became heavy with clotting and dragging pain. I didn’t take too much notice and it wasn’t as debilitating as some other women’s stories that I have read. Around the same time, sexual intercourse became uncomfortable moving towards painful and then extremely painful. I also had stress incontinence so avoided my previously active aerobic lifestyle as I had ...

The post Only 14 days since TAH – Anne Marie’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association.

My husband and I went along to the consultation and she really did listen to me. I explained how the symptoms were affecting my life, marriage, etc and she offered me either ablation for the 2nd time or TAH. Without hesitation I chose TAH. I had the operation on 8th June 2016. I was scared on the morning of the surgery but I needn’t have been. Everyone at the hosp...

The post Sex after the menopause appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. The menopause is a part of a woman’s life. Although most women don’t have to face this transitional period until their 40’s and 50’s, women who have a hysterectomy can expect to experience early menopause, with symptoms more severe than normal. During this time your ovaries will shut down, and you will no longer be able to conceive. Whether you are experiencing the menopause naturally or as a result of having a hysterectomy, one thing is for sure – this doesn’t have to mean the end of your sex life. Although som...

The post My total hysterectomy – Beverley’s Story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. In October 2015 at the age of 49, I had a total hysterectomy. I had for some years beforehand been suffering from extremely heavy periods that came whenever they felt like it. I had put this down to getting older and putting on a lot of weight. Then towards the end of 2014, I noticed that I had developed a small umbilical hernia. I decided to try to lose the weight in 2015 so, in January, I started eating more healthily and going to the gym 3-4 times a week. I started to lose weight but my stomach size did not change. ...
