Re: Period Issues: need advice

Wow, I really feel for you - and I thought my situation was bad! I too was on b.c. pills to help stop heavy bleeding, but it just made the bleeding heavier. What made it even worse is that I'm already anemic, so the combination of the two was absolutely horrible. I was referred to a hemotologist who checked my iron levels (which were "shockingly low") so she had me take an iron IV that lasted 9 hours. This isn't a solution to the problem, but it helped a lot with the weakness due to the heavy blood loss.
