My total hysterectomy – Beverley’s Story

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.

A positive fibroids story – Beverley’s story

I have to say it is the best thing I have had done.  I was becoming irregular and my GP said it was my age at 47 and to be expected.  However I never had a period for 4 months leading up to my wedding and for a month after, he said this was stress (even though I did not feel stressed at all).

Total hysterectomy age 40 – Lynn’s Story

Since I started my periods at age 13 I suffered from painful periods. The pain got gradually worse over the years. I tried every possible type of contraceptive to help with the pain including Depo-Provera injections and the Mirena Coil but nothing helped much.
