Periods meh

Since having my twins 2 years ago, oh my god, my periods have been awful! I swear each "month" I have a fucking 21 day cycle and my period last 10 days they're getting worse. Not on the pill etc as I was getting awful migraines on it. Any advice? The flooding! Oh my god! Should I get my iron checked out or just hope for an early menopause?

There's various things you can try to stop the flow being do heavy. You should get checked for fibroids too. Don't just put up with it!

I hate periods but since I had my coil fitted I've had virtually none. Might not suit everyone but for me it is bliss.

I would suggest going to the GP, it could be fibroids or endometriosis (I have both) or maybe hormonal. Worth looking into as there may be something that could be done too help.

Thanks all. Would there be any other symptoms if it was fibroids?

I didn't have any other symptoms just dreadfully heavy periods.
