    Would a hysterectomy helpy my bipolar? I suffer at least 3 out of 4 weeks in a month due to severe PMS. I'm fixing to be 38 and my gyn. has told me I'm going thru perimenopause. I also have panic disorder with agoraphobia.    Holly

    If there are medical reasons to have a hysterectomy then that is between you and your gyn and it should be considered but it is not always the right solution to helping with PMS or bipolar disorder because it will put you into immediate menopause instead of the gradual way nature intended.  I am not a physician but I have severe PMS and it is getting worse as I move into peri-menopause.  My bipolar meds help my PMS also and the week before my period is due I make a slight med adjustment (work with your doctor don't try it on your own).  The slight adjustment alieveates the depression and exercise helps with the water retention and the feelings of rage.  The most important thing you can do when living with bipolar disorder is to take care of yourself.  Take your meds, get proper sleep, eat well, and exercise daily and work with a therapist on a regular basis if you need to.
