Constant Bleeding recently diagnosed PCOS

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi i have recently been diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 37. My main problem is i am constantly bleeding. sometimes really heavy and large clots, then days can be quite light but still bleeding. (it's been around 6 months now with about 1/2 week break) I'm not on the pill or taking any other medication other than tranexamic acid to help lighten the bleeding but as soon as i stop taking this it goes back to being heavy again. I'm still waiting for Gynecologist appointment but have a feeling it will be months. Its just really getting me down now and i am constantly feeling drained and so tired. just wondered if anyone else had experienced this and found anything that has helped at all. Thanks x

    I was in a similar situation. I bleed for over 8 months. A GP put me on provera for 6 weeks to reset my body. I stopped bleeding after a few days and havent bleed since

    I have been experiencing constant bleeding as well but I am on birth control. The only days I dont bleed is when Im on the sugar pill for that pack. Im hoping my body is just regulating to the pills but im not sure.

    I completely sympathise with what you've said I've been bleeding non stop for over 2 years and have been started on Tranexamic acid which isn't working and now I've been prescribed Mefenamic acid but there isn't enough help especially as I'm 33 and would like a child at some point but all they can offer is meds that affect your hormones. I'm at the end of my tether with it
