But the thing is, I am healthy. I don't have any diseases (that I know of) or symptoms or pain. The only thing wrong w/ me is that I'm bleeding everyday. So yeah, a hysterectomy would be more for convenience...and quality of life. But it would not be restoring my health.

And that's why I am having these doubts. It just doesn't seem like this stupid little problem warrants such a drastic solution. But that's all I have.

And I am expecting to keep both of my ovaries (unless he sees something wrong with them).
