Walk and weights: The way to lose weight is to "burn" more calories than you eat. 1st- muscle uses more calories at rest than fat, so increasing muscle in the body increases the calories burned all day, every day. Train with situps, pushups, wall sits, and using elastic bands (huge stretchy bands). 2nd - walk! build up to 2-3 miles a day. 3rd-keep track of calories and workouts. Try "my fitness pal" (free app). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I have a choice of laperoscopic or a regular hysterectomy, which should I choose? I'm a little bit overweight.
I'm a smoker, non-drinker, overweight but active and healthy. My periods are extremely painful, heavy and erratic. Would a hysterectomy be an option?
AT 19?: Probably not the best option at your age unless its a last resort. It sounds like you need to see a gynecologist to see what is going on. Maybe PCO, maybe endometriosis. Need more information to know what will work. Even lupron (leuprolide) would be better than hysterectomy at age 19. ...Read more

Ovulation: After a hysterectomy, if the ovaries were left in place, you will ovulate as usual, and the ovaries will form its follicles as usual. They will be released into the pelvic cavity and the body and peritoneal cavity will take care of that fluid by a process called reabsorption. You should not worry about that physiologic process. ...Read more
You should not: You should not have bleeding after a hysterectomy unless you had a supracervical hysterectomy where a portion of the lower part of the uterus was left behind.

A common cause is some extra scar tissue called granulation tissue at the very back of the vagina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: A reputable md always has a reason for major surgery such as hysterectomy. Additionally, pathology tissue committees make sure that the stated reason for surgery is confirmed on tissue examination. Too frequent "normal uterus" pathology reports will raise a "red flag" and hopefully the md has to answer why or risk losing their hospital privileges eventually through peer review. ...Read more

Very Different: An iud is used to prevent pregnancy and/or lighten periods (specifically the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud). A hysterectomy removes the uterus and prevents any future pregnancies as well as any future periods. A hysterectomy is not used for birth control, whereas that is the primary purpose of the iud. One should be completely sure they are done childbearing before getting a hysterectomy. ...Read more
