I am 46 and for the last three years my periods have been getting worse. I bleed so heavy I get anaemic. I bleed for 3-5 days and must lay down when it happens. Doc put me on iron pills. I tried a few pills that were suppose to slow or stop bleeding but my body didn't respond. I have had several scans of my uterus and ovaries for the last 3 years and only this year in Aug was told I have loads of fibroid lesions all over my uterus. Doc suggested some coil thing that would help slow or stop the bleeding. The problem I have is my periods are getting closer together. I have severe cramps but only on my left side from just under my ribcage to below my pelvic bone. I think this is because I have a septum that divides my uterus in half. But I feel like I'm on my period all month. I'm having two periods a month and the symptoms, severe cramps, swollen everything and being weepy I get 3 days after my period finishes before the symptoms start up again and I can't even guess when I will have a period anymore. My doctor is only giving me pain pills for the cramps until I can get an appointment with a consultant at the hospital. I am beyond fed up and want a hysterectomy. Anyone got the same problem. I don't have pain in my back other then the osteoarthritis. Plus I am a full time carer for my disable husband
