I started my periods at 16. My first one was heavy and lasted 2 weeks. Since then I have had periods infrequently. I am now 24 and in the last 8 years I have had maybe 20. One every 4/5 months or so.
I did try taking the pill and this did give me regular periods but it also made me feel very sick.
I had the contraceptive injection and bled constantly for 6 months. This only ended when my doctor prescribed HRT patches. :eek:
My periods when they do occur are now so heavy that I find it difficult to leave the house. I have to take tranexamic acid to control the bleeding. I have a moon cup and therefore can measure the amount of fluid, it is in the region of 600mL per period. apparantly over 80mL is considered heavy bleeding.:(
I have only had one so far this year.
I had a scan a few years back and it showed everything as normal.
My doctor doesn't seem concerned. He thinks that I only percieve the blood loss as high. He thinks I should go on the pill if I want regular periods. :confused:
