I have always suffered from extrememly heavy periods. So heavy that I would leak during the day and night, even though I was wearing thick night time towels. As a result I have got iron-deficiency anaemia. My haem levels are poor. They are currently at their lowest - 8.1.
I always stuggled with getting some serious treatment for this, other than taking iron tablets for the rest of my life. I've been on the contraceptive pill, but this made my blood pressure rise. After pregnancy, I thought it would get better, but it stayed about the same. But yesterday, my GP introduced me to Tranexamic Acid. Apparently, they will reduce my periods by half. Sounds wonderful. Due to take first dose in a couple of weeks. We will see what happens!! :ok:
