I would suggest seeing your GYN I have had weird bleeding with IBD, but to be on the safe side please do see your doc.

I now get mine every 2-3 weeks and it is quite painful....My gyn said he would do a hyster. whenever I'm ready. I'm going to wait until I can't stand it anymore. But I feel like I have mini flares every time.

I had a laproscopic hyst. It was practically painless. It was amazing. I had adhesion lysis at the same time. I could feel THAT, but I joked they could have taken my organs for the hyst and not told me, and I would never have known -- that's how little I felt.

I highly recommend a laproscopic hysterectomy if you ever need to get one, sooooooooooo much easier. Any more info, feel free to ask!
