How heartbreaking.

At 25 I got diagnosed with endometriosis and was told having kids would be tough for me. At 31, I had a hysterectomy and never became a mom.

Dating becomes difficult.

I had to have an emergency hysterectomy a little over a year ago now. I’m scared that my large scar and the fact I can’t have children will make me undesirable to others romantically 😥

This is a real fear.

I had a hysterectomy because of cancer and now I think no man would want me because I can’t have kids.

Bringing it up to people isn't easy.

I had a hysterectomy at 16. It's a sensitive subject and I hate discussing it. I haven't told my bf yet. When he brings up the future/marriage/kids I'll tell him. But until it comes up, it isn't relevant.

There are a lot of reasons for getting one.

I have incurable disease that fused my ovaries to my uterus. I had a  hysterectomy at 18.

Hearing about pregnancy is tough.

I can't carry a baby because I had to have a hysterectomy. Yesterday I found out my sister is having her 2nd kid. I'm devastated. I know I should be happy for her and I hate myself for it.
