Lucky you! A few years ago my then-insurance company denied me a hyst because I apparently hadn't suffered enough (you mean taking birth-control pills that made me psychotic, having two D&Cs, and STILL needing a full-sized adult diaper in addition to wearing a pad and two super-plus tampons for three weeks out of every month wasn't suffering enough?! :angryfire ) so I wound up having an endometrial ablation.
Well, that worked for the first 6 months or so, and I never did go back to bleeding as heavily as I had before the procedure, but eventually I was pretty much back to where I'd started.........bleeding for most of the month, never knowing when I'd start or when I'd stop.......and the waiting game began again. In the meantime, I was working so much and then getting sick, so I could never build up enough vacation time to have the surgery and get through the recovery period without winding up in the poorhouse.
Then just a couple of weeks ago, my pregnant daughter gave me a coupon for Tampax, and I realized I hadn't used any in a long time........in fact, I haven't had a period or anything resembling one since December.
I've been in perimenopause since I was 42, so maybe I'm coming to the natural end of things and won't need the surgery after all.........who knows? At any rate, I'm happy for you, and wish you the best of luck.
