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?

  1. They can do a D&C and scrape down really hard to scrape off the build up on the wall lining. if you dont get answers you like dont ne afraid to go to another doctor

  2. A doctor won’t give you a hysterectomy just because you want one as a means of birth control. You can go get your tubes tied. You may want to look at changing your birth control if the bleeding doesn’t slow down. I had a Nexplanon implant and that sucked. I basically had a 5 month period. I switched to an IUD and have much better luck and far less bleeding. It’s different for everyone.

  3. I’m 31 and had an ablation done last week. Periods will stop or lighten dramatically. Read into it, it may be an option for you. A hysterectomy is a big surgery and with my youngest being 2, and working, I just dont think I could go through that procedure. I was up and going 48 hrs after the ablation.

  4. I’m slightly over 40 but spent way too much time bleeding that heavy. I did the ablation and still had to have the hysterectomy. I did the laproscopic one-left my ovaries and it’s been great-through the belly button and 2 other scars only. Healing time was about 2 weeks…

  5. I did at 34. After four doctors, a female nurse practitioner finally decided to do a D&C and take a uterine biopsy. I had endometrial endocarcinoma. Cancer. Same symptoms as you. Would bleed through everything.

  6. I had mine at 31, because I had PCOS and was bleeding 24 days a month, and becoming anemic. After weighing the options, and having a history of cancer cells on my cervix, I looked into a hysterectomy, and the doctor agreed that the benefits outweighed the cons in my case. I am now 35.

  7. I suggest changing your birth control or see if you’re developing something like endo? That sounds like way too much bleeding for your drs to not explore other options.
    I’m only 23 and my dr wouldnt think to do a hysterectomy on me but that’s just my personal experience…

  8. I had a full hysterectomy at 28. I had 3 kids and I had to jump through hoops with my insurance and my doc. I the abliation done but not difference in the heaviness of my flow. I was diagnosed with endometriosis after i went through 12 months of seasonique birth control to help control my period.

  9. Had mine done in 2017, I was 29. I had Adenomyosis, which contributed to heavy periods, a constant heavy feeling in my uterus and a lot of pain.

    I kept my ovaries but everything else was removed.

    I was not a candidate for ablation due to my 3 previous csections. The incision scar was too thin.

  10. I suggest looking for another doctor. This is not normal. It sounds like there is something else going on here. Get your thyroid checked. But they will not give you a hysterectomy just because you want one. Good luck. You are not alone.
