I am a 44 year old female. I have had severely heavy bleeding, soaking two tampons and a maxi pad every 1/2 hour for a few days at a time periodically. My "periods" sometimes last for 20 days at a time. I have crampy achy left, upper hip periodically. I have an obstruction when trying to insert tampons. My gyn told me two years ago that my cervix had tipped. She did not even comment on it during my last exam. When I asked her about the obstruction, she said that it was probably a tipped bladder from having children. I had a pelvic ultrasound two years ago. They said that I only had small fibriods. My gyn has started me on loestrin for my heavy bleeding. I have concerns about combining birth control hormones with my thyroid meds. So far, I have maintained my weight at a steady 135. I still struggle with fatigue. With my periods getting heavier and longer all the time and the obstruction in the canal, aren't there more tests that should be done?
