Heavy menstrual bleeding
I am 36 years old with two children. I have been suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding and intermenstrual spotting for the last 4-5 years. An ultrasound scan taken last year revealed that I have several cysts in my ovaries as well as multiple intramural fibroids.
I changed my lifestyle and diet and starting taking nutritional supplements. Just as my periods starting falling into a pattern (regular but heavy bleeding), I started to spot continuously for a month before I got my period that went on for 10 days (with episodes of flooding and cramps) and ended in a D&C with endometrial biopsy. Doctors did not find anything amiss and put me on Provera. I stopped Provera after using it for one cycle, got my period and got a transvaginal scan done that shows that everything is absolutely normal. No fibroids, no PCOD. While I am happy, I know that this may not gurantee that my periods will become less heavy. My quality of life has reduced considerably. Should I start using natural progesterone on my own? I know for sure that my ob/gyn won't prescribe it for me.
