thanks for your help Dolly, I had some blood tests done back when I first saw the gp, thyroid and hormones came up okay. I go about 3 months without a period and then i bleed nonstop and so heavy, and normally only medication (provera) will stop it, however last time, after one month they did stop on their own, and now that they have started again i find myself so unmotivated and bit depressed. I had a curette back in May, didnt make any difference. Now the surgeon says I need a hysterectomy, so he has told me to take the tablets for 28 days, bleed for 5 days then take the tablets again, and see what happens. But my husband keeps telling me I should get a 2nd opinion. I have not been taking the tablets, I guess I just keep hoping things will rectify themselves,. I guess the reason I doubt the surgeon, is because he told me i needed a curette so I had that done thinking that would fix it like he said it would.
