I went to the ER in July for passing clots about the size of my palm....it happened again last night. I wish every woman got health care for free, the kind of burden we all carry around with us, we deserve it! Doc told me to take a Women's one-a-day to replace the iron loss... and prescribed Ibuprofen to restrict the blood vessels...I'm sensitive to Ibuprofen, so I haven't taken it yet, but it may help....not sure?? I'm 28, they prescribed 800mg tabs of Ibuprofen prescription strength.
One idea the 2nd opinion doctor gave me, they prescribed me a birth control pill called Femcon, the doc said at the end of this pill pack I'm supposed to stop, and then for one month see if it stops without any pills at all...and then if it doesn't, 4 Femcon tabs a day for 5 days. At the ER they did a vaginal ultrasound and found a fibroid, only less than an inch in size.
The doc says that Femcon, as opposed to Tri-levlin, has a steady amount of Progestin in it. They thought that steady amount would lessen the blood...hasn't so far, and I've been pretty sad lately. I have called my doc, who's supposed to call me back Monday to see if they can do an endometrial biopsy. Rather some tests than none, that's for sure....
Again I am SO sorry you don't have insurance....you are young yet....are you going to school? In VA at least, up until you're 24, you can get your parents insurance if you're going to school.....sorry to pry, but just trying to help if at all possible..
