Hi Linda..you can consider a total hysterectomy....of course, that's an extremely subjective issue...but I didn't hesititate to have one. I think, somehow, that the constant ups and downs of the hormones helped my UC.
I'd be scared, but you have to look at the big picture and decide how much anxiety you're willing to endure until you may have to have a hysterectomy. I don't believe in nibbling away at the cake, so to say. If it's an issue that can become bigger/..get rid of it.
I'm probably one of few regarding the decision, but I haven't regretted ONE day since the hysterectomy...
Something to consider. You must weigh your options...but regarding hyperplasia, I'd not waste time on birth control pills etc.
probably not what you wanted to hear,
