DUB - Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding
I am 60 and have DUB. I have been bleeding for several months. My doctor wanted a D and C. I said no.
Several years ago (age 36), I died for several minutes during gallbladder surgery. I obviously survived... but was given an anti-biotic drip for 17 days. It destroyed my immune system and severe Candida Albicans resulted. I was allergic to everything! Finally after many doctors telling me it was all in my head, I went to a Naturopathic doctor. He saved my life. It took years to regain my health. My experience left me truly frightened of doctors, in general.
It seems I was allergic to the anesthetic given during surgery. I am too frightened to undergo surgery again. I was never told I had DUB or that it was due to hormone imbalance. I have been doing research and now know what this is. My PAP smear is fine - no cancer and no pollups.
My doctor gave me progesterone for 10 days, but that did not stop the bleeding.
I have been taking Vitex... It helped for a few months. I had three normal periods, but the bleeding has started again. Please advise if you can. Thanks.
