Sometimes I wonder if folks are reading, so it came as a complete surprise when I saw that Tracy (the editor of Health Diaries) said that my page was selected for the honor of Reader's Choice!

Of course, hearing that makes me want to do a better job.

First, I focus a lot here on trying to help women realize the importance of their ovaries. But I think I've been remiss on introducing information about alternative therapies for uterine fibroids. After all, that's what brought me to this place in my life, and possibly brought you to this site.

So, look forward to more information about fibroid treatments and therapies as I find them and of course my continuing mission to help women get educated about their own bodies.

Is there something you'd like me to address? I'm hoping to do some special articles about recovery times, pros and cons of different procedures and therapies and touchstones about my progress.

I really appreciated your diary of your supracervical hysterectomy experience. I just had the same procedure 1.5 weeks ago. I am feeling good, but I'm noticing a large amount of clear discharge everyday. I will ask my dr about this when I go back for my appt. I was wondering if you experienced this as well. Are you still glad you kept the cervix? I knew about the possibility of the break through bleeding, but still made a choice to keep it because I thought it would be better.

Thanks and I hope your recovery continues successfully.


Hi Pier,

Definitely talk to your doctor about your discharge. I had some, I think part of it has to do with fluids working their way out.

I hope you've also found - it's a great place to check in and talk with others about recovery and get support.

I have no regrets about the cervix, even though I have the mini-period.
