Re: Some help please?

Jess, sorry to hear you are in such distress. You should really go talk to your GYN about this some more...what it sounds like is a serious hormonal imbalance. Tests (blood tests) can be done to check your thyroid and other hormonal levels...thats easy enough...but there are also procedures to stop the bleeding, if it is really excessive. You said you had an iron shot a year ago? That helped? Iron shots are usually administered monthly- so you might want to get that checked again to....Iron defiency can do the same thing to a woman.
meanwhile, I hate to say it, but a good physical to rule out other deficiencies would be beneficial...a GYN can do all of that with simple blood work-
hang in there, but please go see a doctor soon.
