    I am a 45 year old female who could never have children suffered 13 miscarriages and 1 tubal pregnancy and recently underwent a hysterectomy of the cervix and uterus but now I feel very sad and empty like I was cheated. Is this normal and will it pass with time or should I get help?

    I'm truly sorry for your loss! I also had a hysterectomy although I'd already had children. But I also feel empty and like I was robbed or cheated out of the rest of my life. I strongly suggest you find a therapist to help you work through these terrible losses. An online hysterectomy support group may also be helpful. One that comes to mind is Hystersisters.
