Hi guys - posted on here before always had Stella advice Been on Cerelle for 2 years and until a few weeks ago no problems, no spotting, breakthrough bleeds or periods the whole 2 years (bloody fantastic!)I was placed on Cerelle specifically as my periods were horrific to the point that one week per month I was virtually housebound 20 days ago I started bleeding. Came as a bit of a surprise but I knew it's not unusual as I have friends on cerelle who say they still have a few light bleeds a year.Problem is its never stopped and shows no signs of doing so ! Has been very heavy the whole time (super plus tampons needed) plus big thick clots (sorry tmi !)and cramps / nausea. I don't know if this is just to be expected after going so long without a period?could it be menopause related? (I'm 44)I really don't know if this is something to bother GP with, and even if I do would they be able to do anything? Any advice/similar situation would be fab thanks in advance!and sorry for length !
That is still quite heavy, you poor thing. I would definitely pop to the doctors tomorrow. 20 days is a long time to be bleeding like that. How big are the clots? If they are very large then I would phone 111 for advice tonight.
I'm hoping someone a little more knowledgeable will come along, but I remember on a recent thread something about it being an emergency if the clots are half the size of your fist or something. I think at very least a Drs appointment tomorrow. If you are feeling really unwell then call 111 tonight. I hope it stops for you soon, it sounds horrible.
I had sudden bleeding with mirena and has turned out to be due to a polyp. Am also in my 40s and apparently quite common. Make sure you get a scan as they should investigate further - first GP I saw just fobbed me off with more pills
Also worried as family history not great. My mum had a hysterectomy at 34 because she was bleeding so badly and my little sister had one at 36 as she had uterine cancer the oncologist said she was the youngest patient she had ever seen with that cancer
