So nice to find this site, and find there are other people going through, the same thing as me.
I am 47 years old and have been noticing changes in my periods over the last 2 - 3 years. I always got my period every 30 days and they were always bang on time. Then things started to change and they became more frequent and lighter but only lasted a few days, then they changed and I was getting a period every couple of weeks. I never knew where I was up to. !!! Then they kinda went back to every 30 ish days for a bit,
I got my period on queue on the 30th January this year and I have been bleeding continuously ever since !!!!! It has been a mixture of fairly heavy to just light but continuous bleeding. Then oh my god they just got heavier and heavier with clots and me needing to wear Super Tampax and a pad and I had to change every 45 mins and I was already leaking through. I have felt so awful !! my iron has been low so I am now on Iron supplements, my blood pressure has been low too and it has been a struggle just to function on a day to day basis.
I have recentley had an ultrasound scan which showed a biggish cyst on my right ovary and a small fybroid. I have been referred to a gynaechologist, but in the meantime had to go to my Doctor today as bleeding was horrendous and I had to go home from work, my appt with Gynae is on 25th April, so the Doctor has put me on TA and signed ne off work for 10 days. I am also not keen on taking tablets would rather let things take their course naturally, but this is affecting my life and everything so much that I am willing to give it a go. :-) Sorry this is such a long post but hope other people out there can relate to it. Why do we have to go through all this its not NORMAL to bleed continually, its almost 3 months for me now and enough is enough :D 0 votes
