I have been experiencing extremely heavy periods for the past month now...I'm taking 10mg of Lisinopril.. Just like you I can hardly leave the house for more than an hour for fear that I'll have a major leak..very embarrassing! I've contacted my ob/gyn and was informed the heavy bleeding wasn't due to taking the Lisinopril at all...they feel it's either related to perimenopause (I'm 44) or another ob-related condition... I have an appt. with my ob for later this month in hopes of figuring out what my options are... I'm considering having the Novasure(Ablation) procedure done to either reduce or eliminate my periods... Just seemed a bit ironic that I've been experiencing the heavy periods now that I'm taking the Lisinopril...View Thread
