Leanna’s Story

March 31,2021

I had an ultrasound in June and I measured a 6-month pregnancy uterus and by the time I had one in December the fibroids had continued to grow until they were quite large.

To me, having my uterus and cervix removed for anything other than cancer seemed very invasive. After doing a ton of research and reading about recovery horror stories, I decided that I would keep my uterus at all costs. It’s my lifeblood as a woman and one that I am not willing to easily give up.

I had the Acessa procedure November 1st, 2019. It took over 6 months and much mental anguish for me to make that final decision to have Access no matter what my insurance company decided to do.
