Fibroid and heavy bleeding for 2-1/2 years
I left this message on the "closed" live chat and posting here because maybe someone else can benefit from any solutions provided to me.
I am 52 years old and for the last 2-1/2 years have been having very heavy bleeding. Generally the first day is the worst. Four to six hours of gushing then it slows down for about 4 hours only to continue for another 4 hours of heavy bleeding. Gradually decreases each day, with spotting for several days. Approximately 8-12 days of some bleeding. Hemoglobin levels was around 7 and that was 9 days after period ending and upping iron intake during that time.
Several doctors have recommended a hysterectomy telling me that a myomectomy doesn't guarantee that my bleeding issue will be resolved.
4 months ago the bleeding began to decrease each month - was so hopeful that the minimizing of the bleeding was going to continue. Then this month - right back to the heavy bleeding and accompanying anemia.
I had tried for months compounded progesterone - didn't do anything. Such a disappointment.
My daughter is getting married this next month and my period will likely be occurring on her wedding day.
I'm so concerned that this monthly problem will interfere with this big day. With the wedding just a month away, can high levels of Natpro help reduce the amount of bleeding or will matters get worse before better? I don't want to chance the bleeding getting even heavier than usual, but if there's a chance that it will be reduced....
I've also been taking Armour Thyroid 120 mg for about 4 years.
Thanks for your help.
