Hi everyone, I'm 27 years old, I've never had kids or have been pregnant or on birth control. I've started randomly bleeding between periods about 1.5 years ago. At first it started as just a strand of blood in my otherwise normal discharge, then I started having blood tinged discharge after exercise and after orgasm (no penetration). Since about year ago, it's gotten progressively worse to wear I'm bleeding in between every period. I've had SO many tests done and they've all come back negative. The tests I've had: two pap smears (Thinprep), colposcopy with three cervical biopsies, endocervical curretage, cryotherapy (my doctor thought it would help with the bleeding), endometrial biopsy, d&c with hysteroscopy and polyp removal (biopsy was done on tissue). I thought the d&c would fix my problem, since it removes the uterine lining, but apparently that only helped a little. I'm still bleeding, though not as much.
I've been to multiple doctors and they only thing they've found are three uterine polyps and my uterine lining was thick. I've had an ultrasound after the d&c and my lining was still thick, so my doctors think it's hormone related, but I keep thinking it's an actual physical problem, rather than just hormones. I'm terrified of cancer of some sort. They suggest I get on birth control for a few months to see if that helps to thin out my lining.
So, my question is has anyone else been though this? Or does this sound like a hormone imbalance for those who have had that? It's just hard for me to believe that it could be something that simple. I can't even exercise, walk around for a long time, or do any sort of physical activity without the fear of bleeding and I'm at my wit's end. I've just had so many tests and I can't find anyone who's gone though this. Does anyone know what sort of tests I should be looking into? I was thinking about asking for a LEEP biopsy, since that hasn't been done. If that comes back normal or if my doctor denies doing that, I was thinking about getting Mirena. Does anyone have any experience with that for bleeding between periods?
