I have had constant, heavy bleeding for 11 months now. I was told by my OB/GYN that last August I had a miscarriage. Since that time I bleed almost every day. After a month of bleeding I saw my dr again. He did an ultrasound and said my lining was over twice as thick as it should be. He offered to put me on medication to stop the bleeding but could not tell me why I was bleeding. I bleed so heavily I almost faint when I get up from the toilet. The blood comes out in thick, large clot looking things. I have had them come out almost as big as my hand and several centimeters thick. I called my dr once more after the bleeding continued for several months, again he offered to put me on meds to stop the bleeding, but offered no reason as to why it would occur. I have now continued to deal with the bleeding and have set an appointment with a new dr. If I do stop bleeding for a day or two, as soon as my husband and I try to be intimate I start bleeding again, before we can have intercourse. I mean within a few minutes of kissing I am bleeding. I am scared because my great grandmother on my moms side had a radical double mastectomy in her forties, my grandmother and mom had full hysterectomy's in their late thirties/early forties and my mom and sister have both had endemetreoisis and PCOS. I had an almost 20 pound begnin tumor removed when I was 20, almost 21. I am currently 26. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 2 years now. We have had several miscarriages. He has been tested and has a higher than normal sperm count. Any advice or thoughts before I go in to my new dr would be appreciated.View Thread
Yes my dr did a full blood work up last fall. I don't want to take meds to stop the bleeding til I now the cause. The blood panel reaulta from last year showed I was not anemic, haf no clotting disorders and my white cell coint was normal. My thyroid gets checked every year by my primart care and it has never been an issue I appreciate the ideas though. I do plan on posting ehat the new dr thinks.View Thread
