zumbaista:  I have rough periods the first two days heavy and the first day the cramps cause spasms and I have vomiting (so lucky you don’t have to deal with it) I’m going to make an appointment next month to see what other BC options I can go on when young and dumb took pill with consulting a doctor have been off them for years tho. I’m thinking of the shot but there are alot of risk with that. I’m waiting a few more years before having kids and may go the sugery route afterwards dependign on the seriousness of it all. Sending biggg hugs and positive thoughts (if your not the praying type of girl). I have similar fears as you but I try to stay positive and not dwell on it. Hope things work out for you though and sorry that I’m not much help.

zumbaista:  Try not to dwell on the worst possible outcomes. It is only normal to feel that way, but until the tests are done you really won’t know what is causing your prolonged periods. There are lots of causes of abnormal periods and not all of them require surgery.

Abnormal periods have lots of potential causes and treatments. Yes, some involve a loss of fertility. I chose to have an endometrial ablation to solve the problem, but that was entirely my choice. There were other alternatives, I just went with that option because I was surgically sterilized anyway, so it didn’t matter. It sounds like you’ve got a thorough doctor who’s looking at all the options, which is a good thing. Resist Dr. Google. Be patient, the odds are good that this is something that can be treated medically.

zumbaista:  If you have endo a full hysterectomy is usually the last line of treatment.  They’ll usually start by changing your bc, either to a different pill or to a shot (added bonus you only get it every few months).  If that doesn’t work then they can usually try laser surgery, it’s laprosopic so there is much less downtime and not the impact on your fertility.  That works in many cases.  The most important thing right now is to wait until you have all the facts before leaping to the worst case scenerio.  Breathe and try not to panic until you have all the facts.  Wish you the best.

I agree, don’t put the cart before the horse. I know how scary it can be but on the plus side, maybe they will be able to help you improve your quality of life every month. Bless you and please keep us updated… Maybe try to stay extra busy to keep your mind busy.

If it makes you feel better I had a full month of period last year around this time. I had an ulcer in my uterus that was bleeding.  Mine was light most of the time but got heavy twice.

I am also now 6 months pregnant and it is almost healed, so it may not be fertility based for you either 🙂

zumbaista:  First big hug! Try to relax by focusing your mind on a postive outcome and doing things that make you feel better. Easier said than done, but even partial success would be beneficial.

Then, no matter what the test results are and what the doctors suggest, I would recommend you to also consult a naturopath doctor and/or a well-reviewed acupuncturist. The reason is, given the consequences of such surgery I would want to investigate all my options before going the drastic route, and try natural ways of dealing with the problem if there is no life-threatening emergency.

Sending positive thoughts!
