I am 39 years old. have not had a period since january 2005. have had this problem several times in my 20's. In my 20's they tried a premamrin / provera program to force a period. worked for a while - but then irregular again.
A week ago i saw my OB /GYN who wanted to put me on the birth control pill - just so i would have a period. I am refusing to take Birth control -- did that once - and that's when i got all screwed up with my cycles!! So she did a vaginal ultrasound - showed ovaries and uterus looked good. Performed an endometrial biopsy , with no pain relief offered -- most painful thing in my life !! Biopsy shows hyperplasia / thickening of the lining. She wants to try some pill that i would take for 14 days, and hopefully force a period again. wants to repeat this for 4 months and then repeat the biopsy. lab work shows that i am not menopausal. I have had no pregnancies, nor dor i intend to ever have one. we tried for years and could not get pregnant - so we accepted that there will be no kids for us.
What are my options, I am perfectly fine with a hysterectomy - but she will nto hear of it. I have heard some talk about some sort of surgery that can burn the lining off - but thats all i know.
i am getting a second opinion at another OB / GYN - but that's not until July -- can you give me any advice on what i can / can't, should or shouldn't do?
