Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week.

My mom had hysterectomy for dub. Will I get that now that I am near her age when she had it?

No, probably not: If she had hysterectomy for dub caused by fibroids and if you're african-american, you are likely to also have fibroids. Even if this is the case, you can avoid surgery if you were to get fibroids and dub. If her dub was not fibroid-related much less so. There are better options for dub (fibroid and non fibroid-related) today that don't involve surgery and allow women to keep their uterus. ...Read more

Menopause : Menopause may indeed help your symptoms. Taking nsaid's such as advil, (ibuprofen) if you can tolerate them, can be helpful. Unfortunately the hormonal treatments that are used for younger women would not necessarily be safe in the 50's because of cardiovascular risks. ...Read more
