Have you scheduled a hysterectomy because of an ubearable pain in your uterus? If you have an IUD, Intrauterine Device, you might want to think twice over the matter.

An Intrauterine Device (IUD) is inserted into the cervix and into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. It is not noticeable during the intercourse and can last from 1 up to 10 years. The role of an IUD is to change the lining of the uterus and fallopian tubes, changing the way eggs and sperm move so that fertilization does not occur. Several problems that an IUD can bring are heavier menstrual bleeding, piercing or perforation of the uterine wall, any vaginal infection can result in permanent infertility and so on.

Here is one blog post, by Sockpuppet, in which she says

I had made up my mind at the end of last year that I was in too much pain to continue dealing with my endometriosis. Went to my dr. discussed options and had decided to have a hysterectomy. (much to my drs. disappointment) A couple of weeks went by, I started talking to women going through the same pain and stress. I read up on hysterectomies and then I started reading up on IUDs. Alot of information is out there about IUDs and alot of it came back to the IUD actually causing my pain. I made another decision. Let’s take the IUD out, see if the pain changes. If it doesn’t then okay, if it does then we’ll see. I went in told my dr what I wanted to do, he agreed. It was as though he literally pulled the pain away from my body when he took out the IUD!! I had been in such life altering pain before that… to the point that I had to force myself to function, or to get out of bed. It was a nightmare.

She then switched to the pill and cancelled the hysterectomy. A happy ending and not a happy hysterectomy! Congratulations!

In the rest of the post she wonders whether to have one more baby or not. Here is my comment to the entire post:

Thank you for this post. I have a site on how to avoid hysterectomy and here you are, changing the state of the things, taking the IUD out, and cancelling the hysterectomy in consequence! Bravo! Now you have a chance to have a second baby!

BTW, having a second baby is more work, but it’s not really double the work you already do for one child. Think of it as of a gift to Lulu. If you do have a second baby, she will have a sibling for life:

another birthday party each year,

mutual support for life,

someone to play with and be angry at…

I don’t believe the state of the economy has anything to do with having babies. After all, now we live better than our parents, but that did not stop them from having you and me.

Wishing you all the best, and

Sincerely, Dusko Savic

So what about you? Would you have one more child if you did not have a hysterectomy?
