How do you know if you need a hysterectomy?

I have irregular and sometimes painful periods that cause me to become very irritable and I often clot so bad that tampons can't be worn and pads are impossible.

I think your GYN is the best person to answer this. There could be many many reasons which causes these symptoms. I think hysterectomy is done usually if you have ovarian cysts so large that they afeect your other systems or if you have endometriosis or fibroids. To find out if you have any of these, the doctor might first have you go through abdominal and vaginal ultrasound which is a simple procedure. And if they find anything on it, then they might want to do a diagnostic laparascopy to ensure further the nature,size and exact location of the problem and make a decision about doing a hysterectomy.
It is not a simple thing and they will not make a decision right away. The function of the ovaries and uterus is not just to reproduce and menstruate. There are many hormones that are involved and so many side effects also.
Hi there, i had a hysterectomy about 5 years ago, with mine i had been bleeding for about 1 years my periods were like yours and i had alot of lower pain in my tummy, so i went to the GYNO and he did some test and he was the one that told me i needed to have one .I had a partial the first time and then i was haveing very bad pain in my tummy and the did a ultrasound and thats when they found i had ceast on my overies and so i had a full hysterctomy, so you really need to go to the doc and tell everything you are going through. You might have something else wrong with you and not need to have to have surgery> good luck to you
Before going for a radical and life-altering method like hysterectomy, talk to a specialist about a technique called balloonoplasty. A small water-filled device is inserted in the uterine cavity and super-heated to help stop the over-growth of the endometrium (lining of the uterus). This method is HIGHLY effective, relatively painless and your periods will go from being heavy and miserable to very light.

Be aware however that because it alters the lining of the uterus, it will most likely affect your ability to get pregnant, so be ABSOLUTELY sure you are past your child-bearing urges before you get this procedure.

Good luck!
