Hello, I was diagnosed with

Hello, I was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 20 (this was in 1981) I wanted a hysterectomy but the doctors refused and I went on drug treatment for 6 months. I gained weight but the drugs worked for awhile. After going off the treatment I quickly lost the weight. I ended up having a hysterectomy (with both ovaries removed) at age 39. I was told that because of the endometriosis the ovaries needed to be removed. Please read this carefully, do NOT get a hysterectomy at your age. Stay on the treatments and do not get a hysterectomy. I had difficulty at age 39 with the loss of hormones. You at age 26 will have a much worse time. If you must then do NOT let the doctors remove your ovaries. I know your pain but you will have a different kind of pain if you get a hysterectomy. Back, joint pain, not able to hold urine, depression, sex is different. One symptom I had that surprised me was the loss of liking children. Eventually this corrected itself after many years. Please read up on the surgery and treatments. There is no going back if you have this done. This operation can really change your outlook. Be careful.
