I had them. I bled constantly, severely anemic. Dr put me on hormonal birth control to stop it, NuvaRing, which didnt work. So we added progesterone to the mix...that worked for a while bit every time I changed the NuvaRing I'd bleed heavy for ages until it would level off. It was random and I could never do anything. I had surgery for a cyst and during dr did a thorough d&c which he thought would help...for a bit it did...but bleeding came back. Clots were scary. Then one day I was in awful pain...it lasted about a week. When I moved I felt my uterus slosh when I moved. I was painfully bloated, and if have random sharp terrible pains.
I am 34..I never wanted kids. So my choice was fairly easy. The myomectomy recovery was just as long as a hysterectomy and at my age the damn fibroids would grow back and I didn't want that.
I'm currently home recovering from my total hysterectomy, they took my cervix too because I had hpv. I was in the hospital for 2 days. I'll be home for another month..it's been 2 weeks so far. I'm sore and tired...but so far so good. No spotting since the first day, this is the longest I haven't bled since October when this started so I'm happy!!
Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
