hello! i’ve been dealing with heavy 8-9 day long periods for about 6 years and they’re extremely painful. i’ve had the nexplanon implant since last may and it made my cycle more bearable but sometimes i get it three times a month, about a week long every time. it’s starting to get painful and heavy again and i’m not sure what to do
Chronic Generalized pain
Ask your doctor for transexamic acid!!!
Has your doctor looked into why you have heavy periods? If not, I'd ask them to look into it so you can address the root problem
I went through the same thing but I was on the the shot for 4yrs. My cycles came 2-3 times a month & was very heavy/painful. I bleed for a total of 15-20 days some months & all of my labs was normal. I literally shopped Dr's until I found a Dr that did something about my issue. She ordered CT & MRI w & w/o contrast also US pelvic & abdominal after the scans referred me to Gyn. I was prescribed transexamic acid by Gyn & it did help so I'm currently being treated w/ Naproxen 500mg & Tramadol 50mg to control my pain
I have dysfunctional bleeding too. I have heavy bleeding also- I ended up in ER for excruciating pain & they did all X-rays- seen nothing. Prescribed me Naproxen, Tramadol, and Tranexamic acid.. I’m on Day 14 bleeding and Suffer from Anemia. I’m scheduled for a Hysteroscopy D&C Procedure- full scraping of my Uterine lining in 6 days! Finally my GYNECOLOGIST decides she wants to do something about it. 6 days is a long time for someone who suffers from Anemia. Urghhhh I’ve been taking Tranexamic past 5 days now- nurse said continue to take it. gynecology world has let us woman down-
Ok that's interesting, I'm in the same exact position 🤔
Mine are 2 weeks long and a 10 pain wise, and the week before I feel very sick as well as the week after I'm finally done....
