You know....I started menstrating when I was 13! My FIRST period lasted 3 SOLID months! NonStop bleeding. Cramping, blood clots, pain, ect...it was terrible. I wouldnt know if I would start up again in 1 day or 6 months! Seemed that nothing worked. I ended up going to the DR to get pregnant the first time. After delivery I never had a period (after my initial delivery bleeding) well 10 months later, they said I was pregnant again! (WHAT WITH NO PERIOD????) Well I had my second child. Then the saga continued, heavy months of bleeding, nothing seemed to help. Well my ex and I only wanted two and we had one of each. We ended up divorcing! I ended up going in and having a full hysterectomy at 23!!! Well, that was 13 years ago. I am SO happy I do not have to deal with all that monthly CRAPOLLA. The only time it bothered me was when my new hubby wanted a child and I wanted to give one to him. We wanted to raise a child together. He loves my older two children dearly! Well if you have ever heard the saying "if there is a will there is a way!" Well, we ended up having a surrogate mother and we now have a 3 year old ANGEL! She is the light of EVERYONES eye!!!! I would never change my mind about having my hysterectomy. I only regret it about 3% of the time!
