TyNisa Mckinney’s Story: When I have my period, I get so depressed

June 07,2020

I have so many questions. I’ve been diagnosed with fibroids. I had them removed once, only for them to come back.

Now my doctor told me my only option is a hysterectomy. I’ve missed many events, vacations, family functions, etc., due to excessive cramping and bleeding.

When I’m on my period, I get so depressed. I don’t even want to go to the store because I bleed so heavily. In the month of April, I bled almost the entire month.

I got so frustrated that I made an appointment to have a consultation for a hysterectomy. I ran across this page, and I’m amazed at how many women are going through this.
