I recently had my annual exam with my GYN. Because of my age and increasingly heavy periods he recommended a procedure that would basically destroy the lining of my uterus, thus stopping heavy periods and possibily eliminating them altogether.
Because the destruction of the lining makes pregnancy dangerous, (for the fetus, anyway, no place to imbed itself I guess) he strongly recommended, (and these words give me the shivers)… permanent sterilization to coincide with the above procedure.
Of course, I am not considering either one. I only have heavy periods. They are not painful and they do not render me home bound. They are just a nuisance.
I have no interest in any type of BC, not to mention anything permanent. :mad:
…and personally, and maybe this is denial, I don’t think 42 (my age) is terribly old. It’s not terribly young, either I admit.:rolleyes:
My GYN is a good doctor, but I wish he had a little more sensitivity to my position on this subject.
How many Catholic OBGYN’s are there out there and how do you find one?
