Re: Periods and blood clots..
I suffered from heavy bleeding and HUGE clotting for several years. It seemed to get worse after the birth of my child. For the past 5 years it was so bad I was incapacitated for 2 days of my period having to stay really close to home due to flooding and "accidents" every time I stood up. I went to 2 different OB/GYNs, had a D&C and all of the other usual tests, etc. to find no fibroids, polyps or anything to cause it. Finally I heard about ENDOMETRIAL THERMAL ABLATION. I talked with my dr. and she did not perform the procedure, but recommended that I was a good candidate. What it does is "burn" the lining of the uterous. The result is a "normal" period or no period at all. You may want to look into it. There is a great discussion forum on it. Search for Endometrial Ablation Discussion forum in Yahoo or your search engine. I don't remember the exact link. Hope this helps.
P.S. I had ThermaChoice ablation 10/25/02 and am now at the beginning of my 2nd post op period. So far only spotting. It has been GREAT!
