I don't take vitamins at the moment. I have been looking at several, but am waiting for my check up to talk to the dr.

Janel, I have not had an ablation but know people who have and they say it isn't too bad just a little crampy for a few days. I did have th ehysterectomy (partial he left the ovaries) and it was the best. no more periods no more babies. good luck with all and let us know if you need anything.

Hi!

I just got back from my docs office. I am going to have a surgery on April 18. My cysts are back. He doesn't think that the problem is my cysts but my uterus. He is going to try to do an ablation and see if that helps. If that doesnt then he is going to do a hysterectomy on me. I had to take this shot today to thin my uterine lining to prepare for the surgery. It is going to put me into a little bit of menopause. Hot flashes and mood swings. Oh joy! I am 37 so I will get a little pre show of what menopause is like! Joy! He is also going to tie my tubes. I don't want any more little ones. I will be excitedly waiting for grandchildren (but not inpatiently) because my boys are still very young! LOL.

I take the generic women's one-a-day, but have thought about the weight smart lately.

I take Ginko Biloba: two pills once a day (mainly because I forget to take it any other time, but the once helps, recommended for 3 times per day).

I take a supplement of Niacin as well, but be careful! You can take too much of this vitamin. It's not life threatening but the side effect is a rash that breaks out on your exposed skin as the overage excretes itself through the skin. It goes away within an hour but it is very uncomfortable, like a very mild sunburn. The term "niacin burn" comes from this. BUT if you are a high stress person, it will take a long time to overdose. It took me about 3 months to overdose at the maximum recommended dosage (2500 mg once a day). This was with a job change to a less stressful job. I still take Niacin, but only half a pill from what I had been.

I take Cetnrum Silver - not because I am old (not close) but because it is higher in a few vit and minerals. Instead of taking mulitple, I just take one. Also I supplement with Calcium. I also take my vitamins at bedtime.

I take a multivitamin, calcium supplement and just this weekend started taking a magnesium supplement as well. My doctor recommended a multivitamin and calcium. She said any woman who is planning on having children or recently had children should take prenatal vitamins. The magnesium I'm taking as a recommendation by a teammate on the Premenstrual Munchies Spark Team who pointed out magnesium deficiency adding to PMS symptoms. I looked at my multivitamin and intake of magnesium rich foods and realized I do have a deficiency. I'm seeing if the magnesium helps once it gets to the week before my TOM. I can share that in two days it has eliminated most of my minor cravings for chocolate! Hopefully it will help curb the major chocolate cravings and help with the mood swings during my week of PMS.

Vitamins are recommended as part of a healthy life style.

Does anyone have any good advice about vitamins?
