PostPosted: Tue Jun 29, 2010 7:53 pm    Post subject: hysterectomy - not hyminectomy  Reply with quote

hymin is long gone . . . hysterectomy would do away with the rest of the system, and the need to be further brutalized by the gynocologists.

Went in for fertility treatment, but if I can't do the procedures then I won't be able to get pregnant after all . . . if it's going to be this painfull I am thinking I may want to give up on having kids, save myself the agony of future gyn stuff and just have the system out all together.   It seems really unfair that I maybe don`t get to have kids because of this.  on the up side I wouldn`t have to worry about cancer.

What are the possibilities for sedation during fertility treatments if I were to travel to the US? (maybe they are just being cheap with the drugs because I am subject to Canada's  socialized medical system)

Why haven`t I seen the gyn more regularily? - I have moved alot in my life and generally have not had consistant medical care.  Untill I had trouble getting pregnant it wasn`t something I made a priority.

I read "hymenectomy" instead of "hysterectomy", sorry!

Do you know why you are having trouble getting pregnant? A gynaecological examination is not a necessity for finding out.
You can see by yourself if everything's alright with you, without even seeing a gyno, for example by monitoring your cycle with the symptothermal method. A gyno will take about three blood samples to check your hormones, if you prefer that method.
An examination would only tell if everything in the right place, and it's very rare that it is not! Also, your gyno can see that with an ultrasound examination from outside.
And has your partner had a spermiogram made?

By the way, I read that Botox is inserted under anaesthesia, so it's not a way to avoid anaesthesia.

But if you are having a laparoscopy under anaesthesia anyway, you could ask if they could also test if you are infected human pappiloma virus. 99 % of all women with cervical cancer are infected with high risk forms of this virus. If you are not infected, and staying with the same partner, the likelihood of cervical cancer is very low for you.

from what I am told, 90% of the human population is carrying several forms of HPV - what causes HPV symptoms actually has more to do with the person's imune system than the presence of the HPV itself.  Canada (except Ontario and Qeubec) does not do the testing for it ecause they basically assume everyone has some HPV living in them - like yeast or saff bacteria, these things live on most or all of us to some degree and can be contracted congenitally, sexually, and (some say) orrally or by the digestive tract.  So if we didn't get it from our mothers, doctors assume we have picked it up in some way at some point (sharing a drink even - once it gets in the system it finds a nice mucussy place to live - throat, cervix, lungs etc.) - they are doing some tests on my immune system to see why I seem to get sick with every bug out there.  I understand though that the American doctors have other approaches and different sets of information - I did a fair bit of reading in addition to what my doctors have given me and there seems to be a variety of thoeries and approaches - some intersting links to other cancers as well where they have been able to identify the genetic pathways by which the "pirate"DNA is "uploaded" to your cell - finding some form of HPV present in many different Carcenomas (not just cervical cancer but also head and neck cancers, lung cancer, and breast cancer).  They are also testing a drug which blocks this pathway, preventing (lung cancer) from replicating abnormal cells.  This is part of how these viruses replicate - by blocking this pathway they are able to starve out the cancer so to speak.  The Canadian government spent billions on anti-smoking information before they figured out the link between HPV and cancers, now they are only starting to fund information here about HPV (apparently smoking is not the villan but simply one more thing that wears your immune system)


My immune system may be weaker for a variety of reasons - they are doing some tests to find out what they can.  (We know it's not anything obvious - no smoking or AIDS)

As for why I can't get preggers they haven't given me a good answer yet, however they did unclog my right tube yesterday so maybe that will help.

Well, there are different kinds of HPV, low risk and high risk types. It's true, many people are infected with HPV, but the number of people carrying the high risk types is lower. People only infected with low risk types are not prone to cancer - they cause genital warts, for example (given a weak immune system). Not a nice thing to have either, but to be seen from the outside, and harmless compared with cancer.

"what causes HPV symptoms actually has more to do with the person's imune system than the presence of the HPV itself."

Yes, bingo.
It has to do with how badly we eat and all the putrified and fermented
food we ingest and that our body can't break down properly and
it becomes toxic and then, bang,  our immune system can't defend ourselves.

Anyway, as for the stress about getting pregnant and considering giving up..

Have you ever considered that it may not be your path in life and
that there may be a child somewhere who's dying (literally)
to be adopted by you?

Just a thought..

all the best for your laparoscopy...

take care of your body, it sounds like you went through a lot
of stress already...

Hi Chalchi,

thank you for being active while I was away.
you're doing a great and useful job for sure..

it's not like I'm back actually but I wanted to check
how things were going.

I still can't use the computer very often these days
so it'd  be good to know
that you're around to welcome newcomers etc.

it doesn't have to be a task though..

just do it when it pleases you to.

just please do me a favour, when you feel like
you need to move on, email me please so I can
arrange things differently here.

Thank you...
