  1. This is one reason I was so adamant about keeping my ovaries when it became apparent I could either have a hysterectomy or bleed to death. As they were about to put me under anesthesia, I told the doctor that he’d best wake me up and talk to me first if he thought my ovaries needed to be removed. He agreed. I was so afraid of losing them because I do believe they are so important.

    1. Chloe – you are amazing and a role model for women facing these decisions. You are so well educated that you were able to make a very important choice and articulate to your doctors what you wanted and thought was best for your body. That’s what I try to do each day-teach women so they can be like you when faced with medical crisis.

  2. I had a complete hysterectomy in April of 2014. I was 37 years old. For the past 8 months I have had such bad joint and muscle pain that I can barely function!! I refused going on hrt because of all of the side effects. Did I make a mistake?? I never thought the pain could be from menopause. I’ve had so many tests and xrays done its ridiculous and they still can’t give me any answers.. Please help!!!

    1. I would definitely speak to your menopause specialist about these muscle aches. Many women experience muscle aches from declining hormones.
