Is there any other option other than hysterectomy for heavy bleeding?

I have been bleeding very heavy for a month after not having a period for three months. I just has a endometrial biopsy and a D&C today. My doctor says I must have a hysterectomy removing uterus, ovaries and tubes. I had breast cancer in 2005 and have been cleared since then. Isn t there a y other options?

Hello,

As you are the case of Ca Breast and complaining of heavy bleeding. Your biopsy and D&C may be suggestive of something for which TAH is needed. Still, I would like to go through your reports so that I can give my opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist
