Follow advice of Gyn: Your gynecologist is the one who can guide you best. I doubt if the cervix lesions have anything to do with heavy periods. So handle these as 2 separate issues for the sake of treatment. I would say hysterectomy is not indicated for treating the cin3(it can be manged with leep). Heavy menses/periods can be often manged with hormonal therapy with help from your gyncologist....Hystrecto last resort.
