I am 27 years old. I have no kids and I have been having abnormal bleeding for 12 years. I bleed heavy for 2 and 3 months straight. I have took birthcontrol pills given by ob/gyn. Nothing helps. The pills make it worse. I have thought about an hysterectomy. But thats my last choice. Is there anything I can take to stop my periods.

  • You don't want to stop your periods, you want to REGULATE them so they are not heavy and abnormal. What tests have you had? Ultrasound? Blood tests? What has your gyno diagnosed you with? Do you have extreme pain? Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is brilliant for helping to regulate the menstrual cycle. Please consider this as an option. Visit www.acufinder.com for info. There is a patent formula called Yunnan Paiyao which helps stop bleeding...but you need to get to the cause of your heavy and abnormal cycles. An acupuncturist will look at all of your symptoms and diagnose where the imbalance lies. Best wishes.DOM

  • Are you sure you dont have a fibroid within the woomb cavity?That would explain the bleeding - a basic ultrsound should reveal that.If you do have a fibroid, 2 possible treatments:1. you have it removed surgically 2. you have it 'burnt'If you have it burnt, you will probably never have a period again and will not be able to have children. But you will still have your hormonal production just like all other women in childbearing years... so, none of this thing about premenopause and all the rest of it... check it out with the gynecologist.

  • Hi! First of all: sorry for the termonoligy or my English as I'm from Holland. Also sorry that you're experiencing such heavy bleeding: it must really affect your life. I'm thinking you might have endometriosis or a fybroid or something. It must for sure have something to do with abnormal (in amount, that is!) womb lining and both conditions make that happen. Try and get an ultrasound to diagnose properly. And you could also ask your gynaecologist to put you back on a pill that has hormones combined in one pill (one fase pill) as supposed to a regiment that has on type of pill for one week and then another type the next etc. until you stop for one week and just never stop in the 'stopweek' (sorry for my English!!!). Just keep on taking it. Most doc's think mentruation is obsolete anyway! Good luck!!!

  • Do you have any additional symptoms? Have you been checked for PCOS?PCOS would additionally cause excessive hair growth, weight gain, acne, dandruff and/or high blood pressure.Hysterectomy will not help you, you may lose your periods but will get all sorts of other problems: depression, anxiety, menopause symptoms, etcHysterectomy is a scary solution to anything
