Month long heavy bleeding and clots
Hi Wray, I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this site, it is the most informative one that I have found to date.
No sooner than I turned 31, my periods began to become increasingly heavier. It eventually got to the point that I was going through 100 super absorbancy tampons a week!!!
Since I started my period at 12, I always had incapacitating cramps, but after doing research on the web when my periods became heavier, I read about the awful side effects of tampons and how they contributed to my pain.
I stopped using tampons as of last Dec. and my cramps completely disappeared. I haven't had cramps in over 7 months, WHATSOEVER.
HOWEVER, although my periods became painless, by mid January, they got heavier and heavier and were now accompanied by palm sized clots and tissue that came at frequent rates. In addition, there were certain times that I would GUSH blood and clots for hours on end to the point of anemia.
Long story short, between suggestions from friends and research on the web, I found that the most likely cause of my bleeding was a hormonal imbalance/low progesterone. I purchased Nature's Precise Cream from one of Dr. Lee's websites and started applying 1/4 tspn. twice daily as of this Monday. I am already seeing results; the heels of my feet were badly cracked and started to heel, my complexion is clearing, my moods seem more balanced and during heavy flow times, applying the cream stops the flow.
My last period started June 17th and was very heavy. By the time I got the cream on July 12th, I was still bleeding but I went ahead and started the treatment. The bleeding stopped for 2 days and then I started my normal cycle again (this wed.,) but I am still using the cream.
My question i... should I continue using the cream since I am on my period again and should I increase the dosage to re-regulate my cycle? I assumed that I should use it for the next 21 days and then stop for the last 7, to reset. Is this a correct assumption? My goal is to stop the month long, heavy, clot-filled periods and regain normalcy.
