Re: Heavy bleeding - big clots - should I worry?
I too have very heavy periods, and they last for eight days. I have had a vaginal ultrasound and i do have fibroids. I also pass a lot of clots, i feel them coming and they are sometimes the size of a golf ball. I, like you always have to be carefule if i stain my pants, i never wear tampons (it's just a choice i've made) i always wear about four maxi mama pads at a time, two in the front and two in the back. It is quite annoying but i have learned to live with it, this is just how it is with me. A couple of years ago i was out with my cousin, in a store and we had just gone out it's not like i was running around all day, i said tro my cousin oh! i feel like i'm bleeding, she said Oh my God! look down, the floor in the store was filled with blood, just to tell you how bad it gets. Because of all the bleeding i am anaemic, all the red blood counts are low. The doctors do advise that i remove my uterus but i've decided not to. For me, it'sjust a way of life
for yourself you can change it if you want to. Go see another doctor request a vaginal ultrasound and get some answers. There are procedures that can help your situation if you would like to do them. My cousin did have the ablation done and it was very successful for her, she swears to this day that it changed her life. Good luck
