Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You definitely are experiencing changes in your cycles and it can be due to perimenopause. Not sure having an Hysterectomy would be the way out. Especially is your pap smear and ultrasounds are normal.  You might want to get a second opinion from another OBGYN. Some of the reasons women have hysterectomy is for Abnormal vaginal bleeding.  Changes in hormone levels, infection, cancer, or fibroids are some things that can cause abnormal bleeding.

I've included some links, hope this helps
