I dont have it but ladies we see at work with it tend to try hormone therapy like the pill to control the heavy bleeding and NSAIDs like nurofen, and heaps of others but I cant remember the name to help with the pain, really severe cases can end with them having hysterectomys.
Its meant to be awfull to deal with very painful and very heavy bleeding :cry:

well.. its a difficult issue.. different things work for different people. i suggest you see your doctor or gynaecologist about it?

as was mentioned here, going on the contraceptive pill (theres a few different types) can help alleviate some of the heavy bleeding and pain associated

antiinflammatories, like was suggested above (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen can also be really useful. have you tried nurofen plus? its ibuprofen + codeine and its a strong painkiller, you can buy it over the counter in any pharmacy. your gp could prescrible stronger pain killers if need be

other options include more surgical type procedures... you can have a keyhole surgical procedure (laparoscopy) that can give relief for a number of years. hysterectomy is an extreme, but unfortunately for many women this is the only option.


hope i helped a little! its a terrible condition, i hope you find some relief!
