I spent my birthday in a hospital room scheduled for a blood transfusion. I was anemic due to heavy periods and would bleed for months at a time. I knew I had uterine fibroids, but it was not uncommon for many women especially for African-American women. I actually went to purchase diapers. My bleeding became that heavy! I felt faint while in the supermarket and decided that going home to sleep it off was not such a good idea. I received 3 pints of blood, was released 2 days later and was advised to speak with my GYN doctor on what I should do next.
My options provided to me at the time was to have a full hysterectomy where doctors would remove my uterus completely and I'll never have to worry about heavy bleeding ever again or have a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), a minimally invasive procedure to remove the tumors. I was so tempted to have the hysterectomy done and to never have a period again! Then there was the other part of me that felt like I would not be a whole woman if I went that route. I had already had my children so I didn't think it would be an issue. In reality, it was an issue. I could not fathom the idea of having my womanhood removed and then possibly going into menopause early. So, I made the decision to go for the UFE. Everything went well and I did not receive a period for an entire year!
So here I am about 2 years later faced with the same issue all over again! The Doctor said that my fibroid's were very small. I had been previously advised that fibroids can come back, but it wasn't the fibroids that was causing me to bleed for months at a time and passing clots the size of liver. Causes of menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) can come from several factors such as hormonal imbalance, uterine fibroids, cancer, Intra Uterine Device (IUD), inherited bleeding disorders and other medical conditions. I experienced, mood swings, depression not to mention it took a toll on my relationship. I was experiencing hormonal imbalance with some peri-menopause symptoms. My Gyn Doctor suggested a new minimally invasive procedure called endometrial ablation by Novaure. She provided me with pamphlets and I even met with the Doctor who would perform the procedure before the actual procedure. The procedure was brief and may have lasted about 5 minutes or so. Since this procedure I have had no complications and I have committed to making my health a priority by practicing self-care.
I am so grateful for my life’s journey and personal struggles with health, depression, forgiveness, relationships, bankruptcy and homelessness as it has brought me to a place of peace, humility, gratitude, happiness and purpose. It is from my journey that my true calling emerged; to be of service to a community of women by empowering them take their power back, be in control of their lives, overcome obstacles, build resilience, discover their true self and make the practice of Self-care NON-NEGOTIABLE!
