TOTM Blues (sorry guys)

Postby Fairie » Thu May 17, 2007 1:03 pm

Just wondering am I the oldest one here (50 in a few weeks :( ) I thought someone might know if you have been told by Doctors & Specialists that you are Post - Menapausal (since I was 43) and it is only the Pill or HRT that is making you have a period then why after 3 months of not taking either am I still getting them. :evil: :evil: :evil:

The trouble is that they are sooo heavy I even have to set the alarm at night for every couple of hours or I will have to strip the bed and wash everything. This goes on for almost a week :evil: :evil:

Sorry for the rant I'm just so frustrated, I am not even game enough to go out for a week. I think I will start taking the pill again at least that controled the bleeding. :?

hey fay i dont envy you mate. the things us women have to go through is ridiculous. hopefully the dr can give you something to control it. are you using the big maternity 'surfboard' pads? they might help a bit

that sounds awful for you, I know about the flooding and its bloody awful ,(pardon the pun). At my heaviest I wear a super tampon and a nighttime pad, during the day.
if you are meant to be post menapausal then maybe a trip to a good gynaecologist might help. Bleeding that heavy can lead to anaemia, which makes you feel run down and tired. It cant hurt to get an expert opinion as you sound, rightly,feedup with it all Fay.

This being a woman thing can be pretty crappy at times :(

Oh I feel for you - as I am 35 and still wake up during the night to "strip". I agree with Kate, hopefully your Dr can help you. I have to sometimes use 2 "surfboards" at once!!!!!!!!!! :oops:
2008 - my year to be great!!

Hi Fay - I'm 29 and every 2nd or 3rd period is extremely heavy for me and it's painful and I have to get up during the night to go so I don't "flood". It's horrible and I feel for you. Thankfully for me the heavy days only last a couple of days out of that week. I agree with the girls, see if you can see a gynaecologist, they may be able to help you.

Best of luck with it!

I think a trip to the drs maybe needed for you Fay, there are some conditions that can cause abnormal bleeding along with some really effective treatment for it. It sounds awful what you are going thru, Ive never had much probs with my periods but when I ovulate the pain is outragous!

Thanks guys have made an appointment with a female Doctor next week so I hope she is better than the male gynaecologist I saw last year, who said it is something I have to live with and will sort it self out. Then went on to say being overweight was probably a factor. :? :?
