I was on hols with my friend last week and she told me that her period has been coming every 2 weeks for the past couple of months. She is v. worried that she has cancer!
She is on thyroxin for her thyroid glands - but she's been on that for about 5 years with no probs.
Any ideas for diag? she is going to see if she can get appt with GP.
I had the same two week problem in February, it eventually settled down.
My periods have been very very heavy since DS was born 4 years ago, I thought it was as a result of the aspirin I am on for my heart, but seemingly not.
TMI alert I was filling a super tampax in an hour or less sometimes.
I have seen a Gynae, who recommended .. guess what??? the Mirena coil, they are handing them out like snuff at a wake at the moment . I refused her kind offer , she had mentioned two other possibilities, which also didnt appeal.
Tranxamic something or other acid, basically tablets or cauterisation of the lining of the womb(lovely)
So there was a tumbleweed moment after I turned down all her suggestions and then and only then did she mention the fact that I could have Microval in tablet form, which is the contraceptive in the mirena coil, and no need for a foreign body to be inserted into my nether regions. I am only on for about 15 days, so I am not in a position to say whether it has worked or not.
