An estimated 1 in 3 women will end up having a hysterectomy in her lifetime.
I had a hysterectomy in December '05, and I couldn't find any communities dedicated to the subject of hysterectomies. At my age, it's hard to find people who've had or are having a similar experience. My friends and family, though they try, can't really understand what I'm going through. So, this community was born.
If you had, are having, or might have a hysterectomy, please join. I think we could all use the support. I'd especially like it if this could be a support community for young women [people], but older women [people] are certainly welcome as well!
(PS. The reason you're having a hysterectomy is irrelevant, although we'd love it if you share your story. FTM transgendered folks are welcome, as well - just let us know what pronouns you are most comfortable with! This isn't about judgement; we're probably getting enough of that from our friends and families. We're here for support.)
