Thank god for strangers
I have been "bleeding" in b/w periods for quite a few years now and it's just now starting to really get on my nerves. Here are the nasty details:
it's not blood per se...it's dark brown, smells metallic, and can be mucosy or really runny.
It happens about a week or so before my real period
There is no pain other than very slight cramping
I call it my "pre-period period" b/c it gets so heavy that i've thought about using tampons.
It's ruining my desire to have sex with my fiance and it's embarassing, of course.
No real history of womanly problems except for endometriosis on my dad's side.
My doctor told me that my birth control will help, but it has not helped. In fact, it doesn't matter if i'm on BC or not--it happens anyway!
If anyone has faced this same dilemma, please feel free to make me feel better about the situation
I want to get rid of this if it's at all possible. Thank you!!
