continuous spotting

I am 53 years old. I was continuously spotting for 3 weeks, when I saw my gynoecologist, she did a endometrial biopsy. she told me that I had hyperplasia and put me on provera. I spotting stopped for a day or so and continued for another 3 weeks, Then I had a very heavy menstrual that lasted almost 8 days. My doctor put me on Megesterl? Following which I had a D & C done. I was told that I had a polyp. The bleeding stopped temporarily for 2 days. Even since I am still spotting. stopped all medications. I am worried and my blood count is 9.2.

It sound like your doctor is going about things in a good way. However, a blood count of 9.2 is low. You might be low in iron and that can also cause spotting. Have your doctor check your iron level and begin taking an over the counter iron tablet 2-3 times daily for about 3 months or more. Also take a multivitamin. Ask your doctor to recheck your blood count in a few months to see if it is increasing. If not, it is a good idea to find out why. If low iron is corrected, there is a good chance the spotting will stop.
