I suffered for years and got misdiagnosed with fibroids. Finally, last year found out it is Adenomyosis. The doctor prescribed Mirena IUD, twice because each time it fell out. Th second time it got hung up and created all kinds of excess bleeding. Now, they want to try Novak ring or birth control pills. Although, this place has natural information posted does not recommend it. The staff doesn't even have a clue on anything natural. They only offer text book pharmaceutical options. I had been to several and None will back you if you want to choose using progesterone cream and give you deaf ears on any natural protocols. Furthermore, none will even suggest checking hormones.
I decided to take matters into my own hando to save my uterus and become a guinea pig for these doctors. In 09, they said I possibly had a blood cancer disorder from being anemic. It was my heavy menstrual periods. Anyhow, I fixed myself then with common sense and etc. I am 50 and will b 51 this year wish me luck. The US is very pharmaceutical dominated and totally controlled by FDA. In most cases a person really has to be their own medical advocate. Thoughts on progesterone cream is kindly welcomed in my case of Adenomyosis.
