Readers’ questions, stories and thoughts


Ms Jekyll & Hyde
 suffered from a life-destroying form of the endocrine disorder Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), also known as Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). Determined to be cured, at the age of 35 she elected to have a hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries (LAVH BSO), on the NHS, in London, in February 2012. The operation is currently the only permanent cure for severe PMS/PMDD – it has been very successful! This blog is independent, all views are her own.
