I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies in peri or postmenopause have experienced periods that are heavy? I have (apologies in advance for graphic information or tmi) varying periods of one month being light and 2 days long and then wham bang, I get A period which lasts 2 or 3 days where I pass thickened dark clots which creeps me out no end!
I have never suffered from any fibroids or other lady part issues...2 years ago, my doctor persuaded me that since I was low in iron and passing clots (she said can be typical in perimenopause) that the more a would help. I had the mire a put in and loved the "no periods" experience, but after 1 year of side effects (sore swollen breasts, bloated stomach and sore back and moodiness) I had it removed.
My iron levels are fine (I take iron tablets) and my only issue is the unpleasantness of seeing clots pass!
Any advice or similar experience welcomed!
