      Thanks Michelle! My periods are only heavy for the first few days and then they taper down to a variety of light flow, spotting , an occasional gush ! I can't believe how terrified I am. It's terrible!!

    You can get an laparoscopic done, less invasive. My friend had it done. Scrapes out all the lining of the uterus that's why your bleeding so much. Hope you get through this well! 🙏🏼

    Yes you can get a laparoscopic procedure done which is less invasive. 2 people I know had this done. One with fibroids and the other with lots of bleeding . Ask your Drs about it! Good luck I know the feeling. Anxiety is not good . 🙏🏼
