Partial Hysterectomy vs Hormone Therapy

My husband and I have been trying for baby #2 for more than a year. Before we started treatment I had 3 polyp removal and D&C to assist with implantation. Three timed intercourse cycles and two IUI cycles and I decided it was time for a break. Two non-fertility cycles later and my endo has flared up and I’m in constant pain with heavy bleeding all throughout my cycle. My dr is recommending another endo surgery. My last was the Summer of 2019. He’s recommending a good clean up, look around, tube check and IUD implantation. I’m unsure about how I feel about the IUD and wondering if I should just have my uterus removed. I’m tired of feeling this way, not confident baby #2 will ever happen and just want to feel normal again.


Would love to hear from anyone who has been in this position. I’m on a low dairy and gluten diet but they are not completely eliminated from my diet. 2020 stress has also. It been very helpful with my mental Heath.


Thanks for listening 💕

  1. Hi there, . I haven’t had an experience like yours, so hopefully someone that has will chime in with their own experience.

    In the meantime I just wanted to say that I am sorry you’ve been through so much. What helps me when I am struggling and considering things like a hysterectomy, is to remind myself that it is my body, and only I know how tough it is to live with certain symptoms. Whatever you do, it’s your body, your decision.

    I am sending you all the love I can gather right this minute, hang in there - Jessie (team member)
