Why do I have a constant period?

I've been bleeding for two or three months straight with next to no break. I think the longest I have gone without bleeding was a couple days. I'm working with doctors, but there's very little I can do right now for a number of reasons:

1. I've had my hormones tested before, and they were normal levels...everything was fine according to blood work.

2. Years ago I had an ultrasound which showed some cervical cysts and some tiny cystic foci in the uterus, but the doctor said this was nothing, and it wasn't looked into further, and my pap smear was negative, so I don't have that.

3. I'm on Medicaid now, and that makes getting good health care surprisingly difficult.

So...I need some help. I'm talking to doctors, but making very little progress. I'm just not sure what to do. Help? I'm a 26 year old Caucasian female.

I am sorry you are going through this. I have put in request for this post to be moved to the "womens forum"  You will probably get some more helpful answers there.

One thing I can suggest, try using "bio-identitcal" Progesterone cream, following the instructions on the package. Also, if possible, see a Natruoprath who specializes in womens issues, they may have more answers than a conventional MD.

I have had heavy periods with clots for years and it gets worse as time goes by. This summer I bled for 3 months and needed a blood transfusion. I'm 47. An abdominal & Transvaginal untrasound showed Adenomyosis. That cannot always be detected by ultrasound. My estrogen is higher. The hospital prescribed Progesterone only pill which made me sick. I switched to a progesterone cream. I also got blood work to test for iron/mineral deficiencies. That can add to bleeding.

Since its been years that you had the ultrasound, things can change...polyps, fibroids, etc.
