excessively long periods
I need to know what my options are to rid myself of excessively long periods.  My history... 35-year-old female.  I have a 15-month-old child.  I suffer from PVC's/PAC's.  Have taken several birth control pills since age 16 to control cycles.  I have had break-through bleeding with each one I have taken.  The least symptomatic for me was Ovcon-35.  Periods are about 7-8 days on pill, 14-17 without the pill.  Periods are every 28 days or so.  After daughter was born, I started my period again at 5 months postpartum, even though I was breastfeeding.  First two PP periods were only 6 days.  Thought I was cured.  Then the third was longer, 8 days.  Up until last month, the periods were averaging 8-10 days.  Not on BCP currently.  This month I think I am going back to my old ways.  I have been lightly spotting since last Friday (3/20), today is Friday 3/27.  The heavy part is no where in sight.  I can usually tell when my period gets to the heavy days and I don't feel it at all.  So, today is day 8.  Even if I start the heavy bleeding today, which for me, last 3-4 days, I will have a 12-14 day period.  I spot the last 1-2 days.  I do not want to go back to the BCP because of my heart arrythmia and my age.  I really want a hysterectomy.  I do not want more children.  I am so over these long periods.  They negatively affect my quality of life.  Am I crazy?  Are there doctors out there who would suggest a hysterectomy for me?  If so, where are they????  Do I have alternatives?  Please help!!!
