I’m a young athlete and my period is such a hassle, considering a hysterectomy just to get rid of it?

I’m a young athlete and my period is such a hassle. I just wish I could get rid of it. It’s irregular and lasts for 7-8 days. My past few periods have been unbearable- 8 days long and terrible cramps. I don’t want to go on the pill because emotionally my hormones have balanced out and I’m worried that if I take any form of birth control it will mess that up. I’ve started considering a hysterectomy just to get rid of it but I can’t really take time off from my training. I just don’t know what to do!

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
This is absolutely normal at your age..nothing to be worried about ..
All you need is to stay assured is that is physiological ..it will settle down on its own soon and everything will be just fine..
Do not think about hysterectomy.. It has extreme complications for young girls and those who have nothing malignant in there to be done…
Eat well..vitamins..iron rich foods and minerals..
