Re: Bleeding problems

Hi, Leslie. I had bouts with breakthrough bleeding from the time I was a teen right through to menopause. Some episodes lasted 3+ months. So I know it's possible to experience this WITHOUT meds, because I wasn't on any until age 47, when I was finally Dx'ed. One theory my drs. had way back when was that BC pills made it worse. But the problem had started before I'd ever taken BC pills, so for me BC pills couldn't have been the prime cause.

Are you also on a blood thinner for the antiphospholipid syndrome?

I assume your rheumie knows, but have you or your rheumie also consulted with an OB/GYN? I really hope some dr. you consult can offer new insights fast. Sympathetically, Vee
