Re: period all month
Welcome to the club! I am right there with you. I don't know how old you are but I am 46. This started 3 years ago for me. I have gone from 5 day periods to 3 day light periods for a couple of years . Now this year I have had a couple of light periods to a heavy month or two where I clot and bleed heavy. BAD CRAMPS! Feel like I might hemmorage. YUCK! Scary. Right now I started with a light bleed 2 days ago and I thought that was it, then last night I awoke in a pile of wet soaked pj's. I was having hot flashes and cramps and the clotting bleeding started. Then I have had cold flashes too. I am still bleeding on and off today with light clotting...keeping and eye on it of course. I take 600 mg of IBU every 6 hours. Taking the edge off. But I still just ache...all over in pelvic region. I have an appt with my regular doctor for a regular pap to check things out and my homeopathic nurse. She checked my hormones again with a saliva test. We may readjust my progesterone cream. I have been taking that for 2 years.
This is quite a ride through the change huh? I just want to try and remain calm and make things as smooth as possible. I just don't want to bleed to death. I know that's drastic. I want to avoid a hysterectomy if possible or anything drastic. I just don't know what to do. I know some people say they are bleeding longer than a few days. If that starts to happen to me I will consider a procedure or something. How long have you been having the weird periods? Let us know how you are. Best wishes!
