    The ablation is a new version of that. Metal netting, they insert into uterus. It is expanded out and then they burn off the lining. Either lighter periods or none. Some forever, some for a few years.
    I checked into it. Decided I didn't want to deal with the pills for surgery prep. It would have been an outpatient, quick recovery but they wanted to give me like 3 different muscle relaxers and pain pills before and more after.
    I don't do pills. I didn't do pain pills with my kids, I do tylenol and call it good. It freaked me out, so I passed and just took the BC pills basically to make it not thicken and get cancer......
    I am hoping to make it until menopause. Everyone in my family was 37 or earlier for hysterectomy.

    Ugh well I hope you make it there. When does memo even start? My only frame of reference is an aunt that has been complaining of hot flashes for about fifteen years. She's either in her fifties or sixties. Who knows! I didn't like pain meds either. After my c sections they gave me oxycodone which gave me some weird awake-dreams. That's prob why people like them, but yikes not for me. Strictly Advil after I got home. I hope the ones you're choking down work for you. If the options are surgery, surgery, or no surgery, I can certainly understand picking no surgery.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at
