A friend of mine asked me to post this question.

She had a baby six years ago and has not stopped bleeding since!

This friend has been to many many doctors to check everything possible and they are now recommending an hysterectomy. My friend is in her 30's and is extremely reluctant to do that.

Anybody every heard of this?
Any help for this out there?

  • Before a hysterectomy, your friends needs to have hormone levels checked by either her gynecologist or a Doctor of Osteopath. I had excessive periods/bleeding and I discovered (many years later on my own) that I was severely progesterone deficient. Once I started taking Progest50 supplements, I was fine in about a month. I take the supplements (which are natural progesterone, not a birth control pill) for three weeks straight and then I take one week off. I would get my periods for 4-6 weeks at a time since college and finally a Doctor of Osteopath caught the definciency in my early thirties. I think surgery should be the last step. Also, a good acupuncturist can help balance your hormone and could provide some insight as to why your friend is having this problem.
