Adenomyosis & CIN 3

Early this year I was diagnosed with adenomyosis and had the option of an IUD (symptom control) or hysterectomy. I opted for a Mirena IUD to help with symptoms. I was almost due for a PAP at the time of the Mirena insertion so I got that done. The PAP results led to biopsies and those results came back as CIN 3. Dr is suggesting a LEEP, but I am wondering if since I have the adenomyosis if I'd be better to just get the hysterectomy. I am 43 and am not having any more children (my son is 23).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Since you don't have cancer, it's best to ask your doctor or someone familiar with Adenomysis and CIN.  The treatment your doctor suggested is standard for that and anything else is just a personal choice about whether you want to have a hysterectomy...

So I opted for the LEEP and my appt was this morning. I had to go to a different Dr as mine could not do it due to her office being under renovation. The Dr I saw today felt that laser would be a better option than a LEEP. So that's what we did. It wasn't as bad as I expected the freezing worked great, so the worst part of the whole procedure is no baths for 3 weeks, I usually soak with a book a couple of times a week so that is gonna be such a pain. Now I just have to have a follow-up PAP in 6 months and hopefully, all will be good then.
