Constant Bleeding for over 5 Years

by Eunice
(NC, USA)

Hi, just found your site and reading with interest.

Am 63, had one ovary removed years ago due to cyst. Have endometriosis. Had heavy periods all my life. Around 9-10 years ago periods stopped for 8 months; broke arm; periods began again day after arm surgery.

Then Sept 2011 I began bleeding very small amounts every day; for the first year the amounts were steady but not heavy. Since then I wear one/two super pads most of the time. Color of blood can vary a lot. Amount does vary some, but have not missed one day of bleeding. I have Source Naturals prog. cream on hand; if I get out-of-control bleeding, cream can slow it down pretty quickly. Cream has NEVER stopped the bleeding.

Began taking Calcium D-Glucarate a week ago; read it should eliminate excess estrogen. Just read about high dose prog. cream and NAC here. Can you please advise??? I strongly prefer natural means. On top of my skin disease (bullous pemphigoid) and this constant bleeding, life has really changed. Retired last year because of all this.

Hope you can help!!!!

Hi Eunice

Oh how dreadful that you have had to put up with all that bleeding for so long, I have no idea how you do it, gosh! If one is still bleeding that means you are in Peri-Menopause which can be a torrid time for most women. A missed period for 12 months puts one in Menopause. Did you ever take birth control or any other contraceptive? This could be the reason why you stopped bleeding for 8 months and perhaps the shock of breaking your arm changed things, I can't really say, except the body does strange things at times.

As you have Endometriosis, have you been treated for inflammation? Endo is caused by oxidative stress and unless the inflammation is dealt with you will have problems. Potent anti-inflammatories are needed for this, see below, it will also help your heavy bleeding. Progesterone therapy is very much needed to help you through this. Please consider trying this Heavy/Continual Bleeding Protocol which has helped so many women. It must be used exactly as stated otherwise it will not work, it will help with your endo as well:

•Natpro Progesterone Cream - 400mg to 500mg/per day
•N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) - 2000mg/per day
•Taurine - 2000mg/per day
•Vitamin D3 - 5000iu's/per day more if Vitamin D3 level is low. Vitamin D3 actually helps to shrink fibroids as well
•Bioflavanoids - 1000mg/per day

Many women have benefited by taking Calcium D-Glucarate as well as a good progesterone cream. Bullous pemphigoid is an auto immune disease, the correct use of progesterone and Vitamin D3 will help with this. You might like to try eating fermented veg, especially sauerkraut, kefir milk/water. It is excellent for inflammation as well as gut issues. Sauerkraut is the best probiotic there is!

Please read the, 'How to use Progesterone Cream' page as it will help you to understand just how progesterone therapy will help you. Do you know what your Vitamin D3 level is? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies making it vital.

Joy:

Hope I am responding in the correct spot. Thank you for such a caring, detailed response including the recommended list of supplements!!!

I plan to read the suggested items and then purchase the supplements. I have tried every possible natural means of which I am aware, but quite honestly have had to focus more on the bullous pemphigoid (as it just overtook my life with blisters, rashes, itching, bleeding). Have pursued a few more traditional things. Not complaining, just explaining.

For inflammation, I take turmeric sporadically since large doses every day seems to eventually cause breakouts. I have (especially the past 3 months) very actively cleaned up my diet; lost 20 pounds in this same period.

I took birth control pills only about 2 years in my early 20's. I had my one son at age 24 (with only the one ovary).

Hi Eunice

You are replying in the correct place :). The supplements as stated have helped so many before with excessive bleeding/clotting and endo etc. I am sure that you will find some relief, but it is not an overnight fix.

Turmeric is excellent for inflammation, make sure to take black pepper with it if you continue to take it. I do prefer fermented veg particularly sauerkraut though. I have even added turmeric to my homemade sauerkraut, the best of both worlds. The BCP that you took may have ignited things, although it's been a long time off them. They are dreadful things and some affect women more than others. It can take years before the body settles down. Don't forget the estrogen mimics that we are all having to deal with on a daily basis.

Take care.
