Has anyone had a hysterectomy before 30?

Has anyone had a hysterectomy before age 30? I cant this anymore; I’m seriously going insane. I had my 2nd c-section on September 17. The postpartum bleeding was intense. I had my IUD placed at my six-week p.p. visit. There was so much blood. Still, the doctor had to shut down the exam room to be cleaned. October 21, I started my first period since being pregnant. It’s still going. I’m changing super plus absorbency tampons every 3 hours. And I’m still leaking into overnight pads. The doc started me on a hormone to try and ease them, and it’s not working. I have to kids, and frankly, I’m 90% sure I want a hysterectomy. Curious to hear your thoughts and feedback, has anyone had a hysterectomy before age 30?

Go on birth control pills. Made all the difference for me. My mother bled like you are. My folks thought she was going to die. She had a hysterectomy in her early 30s and her health was excellent until her death at 82. To maintain her enjoyment of sex, my Mom took hormones until my Dad died. Do not continue to suffer.

I had to have a hysterectomy when I was 28, thankfully I had 2 children first. Went through menopause early, but no problems since! I would have loved to have had more babies but wasn’t in the cards for me. Keep talking to your doctor, if this is what you want and your insurance will cover it, they should abide by your wishes!!!

It depends if you want more kids. Ablation is a bad idea if you’ve had C-sections or want another baby. I have the same problems, but I’d love to have one more baby so I just deal with it the best I can.

I’m seeing a lot of ladies had their also between 27 & 28.
I spent years getting procedures, an ablation, all kinds of meds and depo shots. Finally I had a hysterectomy at 28 due to cancer cells. They took out cervix, uterus and tubes. Just left ovaries because of my age… 4 years later and this was best thing ever!! I just wish they took ovaries so that I don’t have any issues with them in future!

I had to have one when I was 30. The best for me as I had so many problems after my daughter was born and it continued on for 7 years after her. I had 3 surgeries in between time and finally had to have a quick hysterectomy because of so many problems and became a serious anemic from loss of blood every month. It was the best for me.

I had the same issue, after my 3rd C-section and tubal ligation(which could have been reversed) the first thing my doctor did was an ablation if my uterus to control the bleeding. It worked but I started having massive complications known as post ablation syndrome, the Dr didn’t fully cauterize my uterus so a mass of blood formed inside my uterus and I had no choice but to get a partial hysterectomy ( removal of the uterus, one tube and one ovary). My question to you is are you 100% without any doubt in your mind absolutely done having children? Because if I could go back I would have never had the ablation that forced me to have a hysterectomy, although I have 3 beautiful boys with a man I spent 13 bad years with I would love to have more children and it absolutely kills me that I cant. So try to find all options for the bleeding and make sure you don’t want more children. As far as the hysterectomy I’m on no hormones and didn’t go through menopause and I was 25 when I had mine.

I was forty when I had mine. It was endoscopic and I kept my ovaries. I wish I had done it sooner. Recovery was easy, no more gushing blood and excruciating cramps, and no menopause!

I had a partial hysterectomy (kept my ovaries) when I was 29. I have zero regrets! I was in pain 24/7 and would get super sick and weak and nearly pass out with periods after having 3 kids. I feel great now!

I had mine at 27 due to severe endometriosis and severe bleeding, best thing I ever did. Hate the hot flashes that I still have and it’s been 19 years but it’s way better than the alternative. Sending prayers your way!

I had a hysterectomy at 26. I had severe endometriosis. I love having no periods. The pain from the surgery wasn’t bad but they did keep me overnight.

I had mine at 27. It was the roughest year of my life. If you can have one & talk them into leaving you ovaries, ive heard nothing but good. But when you lose your ovaries so young, it opens up a whole can of worms that you just can not be prepared for.

I had one at 28. Best decision ever.

I’m 44 and go through super and plus size tampons less then an hour and always bleed out at night. I should make an appointment but never thought about but really just figured it was my age but your symptoms and describing them it makes me concerned for myself. Hell I came from the bathroom sat and had lunch with my son as we were talking I felt wet ess running down my inside knee i thought it was sweat and wiped it. I pulled my hand up and my kid and I both freaked out. There I was sitting in a pile of blood and didn’t even know it. Crazy stuff I tell yah but you opened my eyes. Gonna make that appointment asap.

I have 4 kids and had a hysterectomy at 31. I’m now 46. I was bleeding so much in a span of 3 months I had 4 blood transfusions. The last one I took the kids to school came back home and went to the bathroom. (Oddly enough I had rearranged the living room the day before.) I woke up slumped over the armrest on the couch. I somehow made it out of the bathroom and had called my neighbor and told her I was feeling sick (she knew what was going on with me and my husband was at work) she had called 911 and thankfully had a key to let them in. Who knows what would have happened to me. I was rushed to the hospital and given 2 pints of blood before they could operate on me that’s how low my blood was and as a third was administered I was put into the or. If you have the kids you want already then maybe a hysterectomy is what you really need. I was in the hospital way to much.

the iud could be making the bleeding much worse . I have known at least 3 of my friends that almost bled to death .those things are dangerous !

I had an ablation 8 yrs ago. Things were good for about 2 yrs . I have just had a hysterectomy at the end of September due to heavy, nonstop bleeding and pain. I still have my ovaries and feel better than I have in 10 yrs.

I had a novasure procedure when I was in my 20s. I had my tubes tied when I was 23, then started having problems with my period when I was 25 or 26. The procedure basically cauterizes your uterus. I’ve not had a period since (I’m 36 now) and this way I didn’t have to have a hysterectomy. Might be worth looking into :blush: I agree :100: with the other comments about doing what is right for you.

I work for an ob/gyn office and there are steps you have to take before the hysterectomy. You have the IUD and that’s one step. They’ll try progesterone that’s another. The ablation to slow it down it stop it completely and finally the hysterectomy. Insurance won’t cover the surgery if you don’t at least try the other methods, at least that’s how our office is. Our nurses fight to get things covered but without trying all other solutions the insurance company pretty much runs things. Keep complaining and try everything they ask of you. My hysterectomy was the best thing I ever did. Keep fighting for it.

Yes. I was 28. I passed clots the size of baseballs. My period was irregular, heavy bleeding.
Had Pap smear done every 3 months.
When I switched Dr i had to wait 5 months before I could have hysterectomy bc I was anemic.
Found precancer.
