I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but i've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but i've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

Start medically: Because of your age most people would start with medical treatments such as birth control pills or Lupron (leuprolide) or iud. Or do laparoscopy. It is also important to know what's the cause of the pain to know if a hysterectomy would help. Also knowing the cause would determine if the ovaries need to be removed - a full hysterectomy. ...Read more

Newly divorced, ex cheated a lot, partial hysterectomy & wanted full std screen Dr. said unnecessary b/c some I couldn't get. Right? or 2nd opinion?

Get the STD screen: In my opinion to be on the safe side you should have a full STD screen done as soon as possible at a local clinic. Also this seems like a very traumatic emotional experience and so if you would like some counselling to help you deal with this I can offer you that. If you feel this would help you please set up an appointment with me on HealthTap: www.healthtap.com/drharoldmandel ...Read more

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting,nausea,pressure, low appetite,fullness, freq.urination

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting,nausea,pressure, low appetite,fullness, freq.urination

Bad versus good: An documented ovarian cyst that produces pressure is not uncommon. However you don't say if the cyst is 3.6 centimeters or inches. Moreover, your symptom complex with urinary frequency, and vaginal spotting post hysterectomy indicate a need to be examined more thoroughly to rule out something else by your MD including bowel or urinary tract issues. ...Read more

Are the side effects for a partial hysterectomy the same as full (still have ovaries) ie;early onset of menopause, anxiety, depression, dizziness fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, nervousness and etc. Should I pay for a saliva testing (zrt)

Are the side effects for a partial hysterectomy the same as full (still have ovaries) ie;early onset of menopause, anxiety, depression, dizziness fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, nervousness and etc. Should I pay for a saliva testing (zrt)

No: Your ovaries are likely still working. Many people seek solutions for mood and stress via ovarian hormones. You could get a serum fsh that can tell if the ovaries are functioning, but serum testing can reveal fluctuations. Do you grind teeth when sleeping? Do you have panic attacks, crying spells, low energy, etc. I'm not saying its all psychiatric just don't use resources seeking perfect horm. ...Read more

What's the difference between hysterectomy and iud. Which is the best benefits from?

What's the difference between hysterectomy and iud.  Which is the best benefits from?

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

I think i'm too young to have a hysterectomy, but I have heavy bleeding and fibroids. What is the difference between a robotic laparoscopic myomectomy and a robotic hysterectomy?

I think i'm too young to have a hysterectomy, but I have heavy bleeding and fibroids. What is the difference between a robotic laparoscopic myomectomy and a robotic hysterectomy?

Pregnancy?: This presentation is common in women with fibroids. Future pregnancy is a consideration which may lead to a recommendation for myomectomy where the fibroids are removed leaving the uterus intact. If pregnancy is not desired, the options include medical therapy, myomectomy or for definitive treatment, hysterectomy where the uterus is removed. Robotc surgery offers shorter recovery, less blood loss. ...Read more
