That's actually what it is. I had the problem of sneezing and peeing myself, coughing and peeing myself, walking and peeing myself...well you see? I always had constant bladder infections and had to wear thick pads all the time. My sex drive has actually gone through the roof and I have to use no extra lubrications. No pain, no bleeding, and no worries. I have more engery because I'm not anemia, I am happy because the pain is gone, and I don't have to worry worry about birth control either. I'd say it was 100% positive experience for me. I have no regrets. I had it recommended by 3 different doctors starting the age of 25.
I wouldn't tread into it lightly because you do put yourself at greater risk of developing osteoporsis and heart disease. Estrogen protects your bones and heart. It is a major surgery and not just one for convienence. It should give you better healthy and quality of life. The quality of life was an issue for me because i was sick, anemic, very tired and achy all the time. Now I'm very healthy and not sleeping on the couch all weekend because I was too weak and tired to do anything.
