Karen, I would suggest that you leave a wet nighty in the freezer...and then, when it happens ...put the frozen nighty on.

Vera, I found this thread hilarious on many levels. I love it! You had me cracking up, I can relate to most everything you said. You have a way with words.

I posted earlier and, now, I have to say that I'm soooooo happy being on the "other side" of things. I'm still on minor HRT. Was reduced last September.

I've read so many posts and was surprised to see so much of the "I don't remember" part. I never experienced that. However, I may chalk that up to having to take Aricept (an Alzheimer's drug) for memory after a serious vehicle accident, which was during my "change."

No more hot flashes, mood swings, swellings, etc. Life is good. I wish all the rest of you the same lovely life.

Ok so now this is the wife~and all I have to say is make your doctors give you a HYSTERECTOMY my life is beautiful now and I dont want to kill my husband anymore!

I am 31 and I had problems like cervical displayisa (pre cancer) when I was 22. Following my first child~I got rid of it thank god but the problems didnt seem to get any better. I then got endometrosis and life became hell every month. I would be down in bed at least the first two days of my cycle(and it came when ever the hell it wanted) sometimes 2 times a month! I had to have laproscopy surgery 4 times to go in and burn the scare tissue off the ovaries. My doctor told me 3 years ago I would only have my one child that was 7 (girl) at the time and I was ok with that but since I was so young they told me I needed to try the laproscopy at least one more time! I did what they wanted and a month later what do you know I was pregnant!

I had a boy this time and that the doctor said that I should be good now and no more issues with the endo! Well suprise suprise I got really sick about 6 months after having him all over again. So this time I demanded I get the hysterectomy.

I am really lucky in the part that I dont have to deal with the cycle anymore however, this hot flash crap sucks! Recently I was a my daughters dance recital and I started to have a hot flash! I told my sister, sitting next to me, that I was having a hot flash and, the lady in front of us turned around and started to laugh! She told me I was crazy and that I was too young to have those, she must not have known what it was like to have them!

But on a good note if you have thought about the hysterectomy, get it done cause life really is alot better, ask my husband he will agree! :)

I will make sure he stocks us up on the ice for all us ladies!
