I am a 31 year old woman and I've been having trouble with my period. I have my period for 40 days straight and I am bleeding very heavily! A LOT! Not to be gross or anything but it feels up 2 pads an hour! When I finally stop its only for 2 weeks! I have been getting really dizzy and I stay tired and sleepy! I have been to the doctor and they keep telling me the same thing that I need to take Birth Control. So I did that and it doesn't change anything! Then here recently I started passing blood through my bowels! I know there is something more going on, but the doctors wont do any testing to find out why. My friend told me that I could become anemic and I could could have low iron as a result of having my period for so long! My husband and I really want to have children, we have been trying for so long! I was pregnant once before about 7 1/2 years ago but I had a miscarriage and I haven't been able to get pregnant since! I know it has something to do with my period, but I can't get any help! Anyone have any advice?
