About 3 months ago i went to the ER with some really bad cramps and really heavy bleeding i mean 2 pads an hour heavy i thought maybe i was pregnant and was lossing the baby but i wasn't so they took me in to do an ultrasound and they saw a hole in my uterus about 3cm big and a cyst about 4.1cm long on the other side. They took the cyst out and repaired the hole the cyst was not cancer thank god BUT they beleave it will come back so i was told to think about maybe having my uterus removed.. I AM 28 AND HAVE 4 CHILDREN BUT WHAT IF I WANTED ONE MORE!!! I feel like if i do go ahead and have my uterus removed i will no longer be the women my husband loves :(
Sorry i needed to vent

I am so sorry.
But I don't feel that takes away your womanhood-- may be a part (big part perhaps), but you are still a woman either way.
And you can have more children via other wombs, too, if you decide...
I wish you the best!

Do what u need to do for your health. Having a uterus isnt what makes you a woman .

A uterus doesn't make you a mother. I know that's pry not what you want to hear, but it is true. Don't think of yourself as any less of a person than you are now.

You are so much more than a uterus. You'd be just as much of a woman without one.

He loves YOU not your reproductive organs.

by perezamberlyNovember 23, 2012 at 1:36 AMI would feel the exact same way. Having your womanhood removed is tough psychologically. Lots of women need therapy for it. The positive side is you are young and have four beautiful children that love and adore you:) your husband will not stop loving you because you cannot have more children. He will still think you're the hot sexy vixen he fell in love with long ago :) I think you should discuss this with your hubs and if he says he thinks it may be a good idea, then you'd feel better about the situation.
