Painful heavy period

Posted , 2 users are following.

hello, im 35 almost 36 my periods have always been pretty painful but lately they have gotten worse. i recently went to the gyno and had some uktra sounds done which came back that i have a small fibroid and an extremely thick uterine wall. my doctor put me on birth control in hopes that this would solve the problem. im currently in so much pain it goes down my right thigh, should i go to a different doctor?

    Being on the pill, particularly at your age, brings up risks of DVT. Is there any swelling or bruising on your leg and does it feel warm? Look up deep vein thrombosis and see if you have any of the symptoms. This can be very serious. Hopefully this is something different, but I was younger than you when I got multiple pulmonary emboli from the pill. I think the contraceptive pill is toxic, not only can you get depression and cellulite, but you also put yourself at risk of very serious conditions, particularly if you are over 30. If you are worried it may be DVT come off the pill immediately.

      Have you been offered anything for your period pain? You could try naproxen or mefenamic acid, if you haven't already. They are both prescription medications.
