I know nygirl mentioned not having a period for the entire time of her 72 weeks of tx. Obviously tx messes with our hormones. One thing you might want to think about is the perio-menopausal symptoms that you may be experiencing. Mine did get heavier, not like you describe but friends have mentioned very heavy periods, using several tampons and pads, etc.
I won't get on a soapbox but I do know people who regretted getting a hysterectomy. Please look into all your options. Good luck with this messy problem.
Since the age of 40 I have been having problems with heavier and heavier periods. At 46 I finally went to the doctor. He suggested either a hysterectomy or a hormonal intrauterine device. I told him I don't need any birth control. That is not the reason you should get a hormonal intrauterine device, he said. It is to control the heavy bleeding.
Hysterectomy was not an alternative I could imagine, unless it was the very last resort. So I tried the intrauterine device, and all my troubles stopped. This has worked out fine for me.
I am on tx now, and still no problems.
I remembered something else. I had a friend for years who had heavy periods but couldn't get pregnant. She and her husband went through all the tests and nothing was found to be the reason. Then she mentioned to a chiropractor that her uterus was tipped. He sent her to a masseuse who helps women with these problems. She manipulated her uterus into the proper place. Four months later, at the age of 39, my friend was pregnant for the first time. And her heavy periods disappeared.
Oooh I could handle the massage. LOL!
NAh - methinks hysterectomy is what is gonna happen tho. Ablation and endometrial biospy with fibroids agggghhhh they weren't there before tx. Sigh..
Wonder if TX caused them?
