I have also heard great things about
the ablation. But everyone I know that has had it did not have UC. My GI doc strongly recommended that I not have the ablation...one possible side effect is burning part of the colon. That is the last thing I need!! I also have horrible pms, heavy cramping and bleeding, irregular periods, and am so irritable. I tried the mirena IUD. I did not have a period for 18 months, but spotted the entire time. I had it removed and then had a month long period. I just tried going back on the pill in July, and after 4 days quit. Could not stop crying, and had bad D all the time. That was the start of the worst flare I have ever had. I KNOW that my UC is directly related to my hormones levels.....no matter what my doc says. I do think it is trial and error and everyone is different. I am seeing a new gyn in April to talk about
bioidentical hormone replacement. I am 35 and don't think that I should be feeling this bad all the time. In addition, I have recently started to get nauseus every night at the same time (like morning sickness), but it only comes the first 2 weeks of my cycle. Hormones suck!!
