This is long but please read it because I really found something that helped and I want to share it in the hopes that it helps anyone not wanting surgery.
5 months ago I started bleeding as if I had been shot.
I was under a lot of stress at the time and thought it was that.
On the 14th day I went to the emergency room.
In the ER they found I had 4 fibroids the largest 6cm.
They also told me that they couldnt do anything but send me home because my hemoglobin levels were good.
I was referred to a top gyno in the area.
I called him the very next day
and he too said he couldnt help me
other than wait til I stopped bleeding and then have a biopsy to make sure it wasnt anything else besides the fibroids.
On the 28th day I finally stopped bleeding and soon thereafter had my biopsy.
Resuts: Nothing cancerous.
My period came back 24 days later with a vengeance.
I couldnt stand up that I would literally soak a pad.
I was weak almost passing out.
I went to the emergency room again
and again they couldnt help me.
My gyno suggested a hysteroscopy d & c.
I was ready because I couldnt deal anymore.
While waiting for my insurance to approve the procedure a friend of mine suggested acupuncture.
With nothing to lose I went.
I am soooo happy I did.
After the first treatment my bleeding was 50% less. After the 3rd treatment in one week it had completely stopped.
Since then I go once a week. and during period weeks 2x a week.
Its been 3 months and my periods have been regular.
I do bleed very heavy the 2nd and 3rd days then normal for a total of 6 days.
I was also given herbal pills called GyneAssure.
I really hope this helps someone out there.
