I've had a continuous period for ten months. Im 20 yrs old. Got checked for PCOS, my testosterone is high but my ultrasound showed no cysts. I dont think I have it. I am 5'1'' and 90lbs. I dont know whats wrong. Recently I tried licorice root. I took it for a couple of days and my period stopped. I continued taking it and my period started again 5 days and Heavier than ever. Its a start....but I dont know what to do now. My doctor says its a mere hormonal imbalance and my gyno says its PCOS. I dont know what to do. I have lower stomach, back cramps. And continuous blood. Its not overly heavy, but still.
Anyone experience this?? I dont want to take birth control..anyone know alternatives?? Input, similar experiences would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
if its not the birth control pill per se that makes u not want to take it there are also the norplant option that may give the same benefit. There are 5 lil rods they place in ur arm...doesnt hurt and they last for 5 years. Just an idea....why doctors are letting you bleed for 10 months in ridiculous, i'd be seriously switching doctors.
Actually, my doctor wants me to take b/c but i want to find an alternative before anything else!
Anyhow, has anyone ever tried false unicorn root, dong quai or wild yam for heavy, irregular, continuous periods??
