    Hi Allie,

    I was in your position in 2016 with extremely heavy bleeding and clots for 5 months.  I took the Northisterone up until my hysterectomy.  If I hadn't I think I would have bled to death!  I still bled a little as I only took one a day but they were a god send.  I was also on iron tablets.

    Any idea when your op will be?  x
