Hi, What you describe could be caused by any number of things, and there is a lot of additional information that would be needed to figure this out. Like you don't mention whether the heavy bleeding includes large clots; whether you were using any type of birth control (before the pill was prescribed); if you are still using birth control, is it the kind that gives you only 4 periods a year?
Start by contacting the public health department for the county in which you live. They will be able to help you find free or affordable care.
You are young and it is not necessary for you to go thru your life with this kind of unnecessary grief. Make the call and get started on getting back to your normal life.
Good luck and take care,
I, and both of my daughters went through this type of thing and it was caused by fibroid tumors. When you went to your Doctor, did she do a vaginal ultra sound?That was how they found mine. I agree with Nina. You need to contact the public health department in the county you live in. Both of my daughters have seen the nurse practitioner, employed but the county, for reduced health care. I hope all is resolved for you soon.
