The post about female parts.

Yesterday I went to the girly doctor (who happened to be a guy) and got some really great news. I've been on a quest to do something about my stupid period for awhile now. Without going into gross detail we'll just say my periods are longer and more frequent than most, it's annoying.

So, I was reading a magazine a couple of months ago and I found an article by my OB in Houston that delivered my kids and it was talking about a uterine ablation to deal with heavy periods. I made a mental note and decided next time I go to my regular doctor I would ask about it. Well, I went to my doctor, he put in a referral so I could ask a Gyno about it and yesterday was the day.

I had an exam, he showed me my uterus and stuff and showed me why I have the problem I do and informed that I am a great candidate for the procedure, yay!!! Basically, in a few weeks they're going to put me to sleep and boil my insides and hopefully I won't bleed anymore. My ovaries will still function and stuff so I'll still get emotional and break out in zits but no more days and days of bleeding.

I'm so excited right now, I may never have to buy tampons again...well, until Sophia starts...I really don't want to think about that.

One of my friends got jealous! Think I can go in and convince my doc I need it? I can just pretend I don't have my tubes tied and my periods aren't about two days, right??
