I want to ask my doctor for a hystarectmie but I was just wanting to see if any one knows what might be going on with me!!!!

    Have you had any tests to try to determine the underlying cause of the irregular / lack of periods? You could start with your primary care doctor or an endocrinologist.

    Some things that can cause this are thyroid or pituitary disorders or something like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Do some research and then maybe see if you can get some testing to determine what's going on.

    I had a hysterectomy and wouldn't recommend it.
