Re: So fed up of this constant bleeding
Sorry to hear you are having such a hard time.
I am wondering if your doctor's diagnosis of DUB is the same as saying you are in peri-menopause since at the age of 47 I imagine that this is what you are experiencing (?). Although I guess whatever they choose to call it, it's a pain in the you know what but at least you can be reassured that what you are going through is not abnormal. Also have your doctors offered you the option of endometrial ablation ? If not, perhaps you can ask them about this. It is not as drastic as a hysterectomy and should solve your irregular bleeding problem, especially since the D & C did not do the trick.
I know how distressing irregular bleeding can be. I am in my early 40's and after many years of being on the pill, I began to experience very heavy irregular bleeding with large clots. I too started to worry about loosing too much blood, I mean, how do you know how much is too much unless you have that tablespoon sitting in your underwear (?!). In my case, my bleeding was due to the pill and as soon as I stopped, the irregular bleeding did too. Seems the pill can cause endometrial atrophy which can cause bleeding. I ended up going for a bunch of tests (endo biopsy, ultrasound etc..) and found out that I also have a 7.5 cm fluid filled ovarian cyst. Now I have a new issue to keep an eye on. At this point, a sex change is looking pretty good ..
Hang in there and all the best for a speedy resolution.
