You're Welcome CupCake!

Considering, 90% of Lupus patients are women, it's important.

One of the only good things about getting old is no period!!

Thank God for small blessings!

I had a horrible time with them.....so had a hysterectomy in my early forties. Wasn't diagnosed then.....
Lupus probably had something to do with my troubles.

“Zest has been dealing with the after effects of Guillain-Barre syndrome, which is an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks the nerves.”

Just to show that we do care. She might be happier there.

Thank you Cupcake.

For those unfamiliar with Guillain-Barre:

As I am dealing with affects of demyelination , I am sympathetic to the challenges it presents to the sufferer.

Thanks, Mr. Bun. My dad had Guillain-Barre and Bells Palsy after coming back from Viet Nam. My recent lumbar puncture showed I have demyelination. I didn't know it could lead to GB, so thanks for the link.

I wish my doctor would schedule me for a hysterectomy. She keeps telling me that I'm too young. I have the feeling she hasn't looked at my birth date on my chart lately. Because if I get pregnant now, I need to have my head examined. First I'm near 50 and second I don't want to pass on this nasty disease.

Baker?

tubes tied is much less invasive.....that would do the trick!  I never recommend hysterectomies to anyone.....unless it is absolutely the last option.


(my hysterectomy story is...........bad.  real bad.)

I really just want the periods to stop, I am almost 50. I am really in no danger of becoming pregnant. I am very much single and plan on keeping it that way. I have too much going on with my family to have any kind of relationship.

Doctors have this thing now about just doing them. They got blasted for just doing them and they got blasted for just giving out c-sections. With all the complications i had with my daughter it would have been healthier and safer for me and my daughter but he was on the board and they were cracking down hard.

I understand that. But I also have PCOS, which makes things worse. Since lupus dxs and all of the meds periods are unpredictable if I'm even going to get them every month or how heavy or how long they are going to last. My pcp and I talked about it a couple years ago and her answer was you may still want children. My response was not at 47 and not with having lupus. And definitely not as a single parent and taking care of my parents. Now I'm on Warfarin so that's another reason for her not to let me get it done.
