Uterine fibroid now possibly endometriosis?
I have a uterine fibroid diagnosed in oct 2010. Fell and broke pelvis 2 weeks after a D&C that after the Dr. told me she could not get to my fibroid because it is in the wall of my uterus all the while my hair is shedding. February 2011 Iam diagnosed with anemia by a dermatologist because of my hair shedding. After months of iron supplements and birth control to make the bleeding lessen my anemia is now gone. Well this has not changed anything. I am 34 years old i first started my periods when i was 16 yrs old and I weigh 135lbs. Yesterday i went to my obgyn and she did a quick pelvic exam to find that my fibroid has grown or i have endometriosis, possible early menopause and need an ultrasound and blood work done. When she did the pelvic exam she felt around and boom I could feel where my pain was stemming from right where my fibroid originally was found well now I can feel it.. So the past 4 mos my periods have been right on the dot 28 days. Dreading them and planning my life around them now. My symptoms are increased hair shedding, wrenching cramps that put me in tears for at least an hour at a time, lower back pain, pelvic pain which has not occurred since my fall and the 3 mos after, hair increasingly shedding right before and after my periods, also fatigue, and migraines. So the Dr. mentioned also implanon a insert for progesterone also that if the fibroid has gotten larger surgery but from outside because the size of my uterus is small. Also telling her Id like to keep my uterus and not have a hysterectomy thinking that, well I dont think I want children but also would not like to have to make the choice at this point in my life. She my dr also tells me it is possible I am going into early menopause because of the severe hot-flashes that go along with my period. I am at a loss I fear cancer. Also fibroid's run in the family. So now its just waiting for the ultrasound that happens next Wednesday and blood work to come back. I am scared my Dr doesn't know anything about the hair shedding she admits. Back when we did the D&C my hormone tests all came back normal. So hopefully these blood tests will tell something. So i would like to go the most healthy natural route as possible. I need to know what you think or your opinion is. I have read some of these and some of it rings true for me. i would also like to say that my Dr. mentioned also going on an anti depressant which as soon as she said that i started thinking i need a new Dr. I just don't believe in the anti depressant thing personally. This is why i do not like western medicine but am willing to do whatever it takes to do this the right way where I feel I am doing good for my body. Also in this year I had and unexplainable fissure outta no where in the right side of vaginal wall. It has gone away but I am wondering if all of this is linked. Any input would help and if you need more info. Whatever I can do to help with any insight would be great.
