For about 3 years I have suffered with long-duration (7-10 days) painful, heavy menstrual bleeding, which is affecting my quality of life. My GYN put me on lo-ovral for 3 months then gave me a stronger birth control pill for another 2 months. The stronger one seemed to be working, but my blood pressure went up and my physician took me off of them. Now I’m back to square one. My GYN told me I was not a candidate for “cutting off the blood supply to the fibroids” because of their location and now thinks I should have a hysterectomy. I asked her if they would only take my uterus and she explained she would probably take the ovaries also. I am 47 years old and my children are grown. What should I be asking the doctor?
