This is going to be very detailed, so I apologize in advance!
About 11 days ago, I started what I thought was a period.
I am on the Depo Provera shot for birth control, and for the majority of my time on the shot (appx 1.5 years) I didn't have any major bleeding.
In March, I had extremely heavy (heavier than a normal period) bleeding, with large clots (some the size of the palm of my hand). I called my OBGYN, and they said "this is normal. It's break through bleeding. We'll just move your shot up to 10 weeks instead of 12."
Well, about 5-6 weeks later, I started this same type of bleeding, but much worse. Soaking overnight pads in 45 mins. I again called my OB, and they told me to come in. They did an exam and ultrasound, and said my endometrial lining was extremely thickened and that I had a polyp in my endometrium. They scheduled a surgery for June 8, a D&C and Polypectymy.
The bleeding started May 10, and it is now May 21, still bleeding severely, and passing huge and long clots. I think there is more wrong than just a polyp, because they said it should not be causing this bad of an issue.
I have always had heavy periods, and other issues, but this is different.
Other symptoms that I have had for a long time:
Severe cramping, some times doubled over in pain or unable to stand. Sometimes reminds me of a runner cramp, or what you get when you exercise too hard.
Cramping when not on my period.
EXTREME Cramping when I have to make a bowel movement, so bad it almost makes you not want to go, but that's the only way to stop the cramping.
Very painful intercourse since I started having sex.
Bleeding after sex.
Lower back pain.
And lower abdominal pressure.
Please help me. I am very concerned about my health, and it seems like my doctors just don't care, and brush off everything I say like it's normal, but it is not.
What can this be? What can I do? And if I were to go to the hospital, realistically, what would they even do for me?
Thank you so much.
