So I have now had the most erratic irregular floods and periods for now 3 years and 5 months. There is no such thing as a cycle or period length. Some months I bleed continually, have a week off and start again and some months I go months without a period. In June I was perimeno and I will be honest I have had enough. Even though my period pants don't leak (and man have they been tested this week!) and even though I am keeping incontinence pads in business (why don't these companies make perimeno pads???) I just need an end in sight.
I have bravely or foolishly made an appointment to see the GP to talk hysterectomy and I would value anyone's input into making a good choice.
I can tolerate tranexamic acid but it makes me very tired, huge headache and upset stomach and leaves me agitated it might not work (it's only been tried 3 times in 8 months - sometimes I think my body could stop bleeding on it's own).
I cannot tolerate mefamic acid as I can't have anti inflams, and I was nauseous with Norethisterone (and bled worse after it!)
I don't fancy Mirena as once it's in it can't come out and I am scared I will carry on bleeding and be an absolute cow.
I don't fancy ablation as I would be the one to fail I think
I cannot see the point in hysteroscopy for my thickened womb lining because if they are going in to look they might as well take it. And if a thickened lining might cause cancer later on they can take it all now.
I wanted to go natural but lately I feel the need for some predictability about my period - I have Adele tickets - how can I bleed through Adele????
So I just wanted some advice - anything and everything please. I have done multi vits as advised on here, no difference. I am not plagued by hot flushes although I get a few, I don't snap everyone's head off although I have the odd rant. I feel old and tired and grouchy but hey ho that's life and thankfully I can manage anxiety better than I used to and I am blessed with not having depression.
All I need is for the bleeding to stop or at least to know when it is coming
Ladies if you are in menopause, how much longer do you think I have to go?
Should I try HRT? Should I try something else?
Please can you share the good, the bad and the downright bloody and help me go to this appointment armed as best I can.
Thank you lovely lovely ladies so much - this forum keeps me sane xxxx
