Well hun, I'm almost 53 ( May 6 ) ... that is if I live to see 53. I'm going through Perimenopause. I've been bleeding for 11 weeks after an absent of no period for 5 months. Have No insurance though worked all my life. So I'm not eligible for Medicaid. The Dope addicts, Drunks, Whores with 10 illegitimate kids & Arabs who haven't been in the country for 3 months can get it BUT NOT ME.
But I did see a GNY, he did a biopsy ( Paid out of pocket, but wait for hospital lab bill OH BROTHER ) and said I must have a normal period ( What this 11 week one is ??? ) to shed endometrial lining. Right now biopsy says hyperplasia without atypia and it can't be ignored and I can't keep bleeding forever. Anyway...................
Right now I'm on 3rd pill of a drug I'm terrified of. Took one, then said that's it. But back on after talking to my boyfriends doctor. Now one is saying by blood work I'm low thyroid and need medication for it, the GYN say's it's elevated yet I don't need medication. MORE STRESS!!!
Had more blood work Friday April 23, 2010. And after 3 of these pills still bleeding. This Provera is suppose to be taken for 10 days. But ended up with 9 because of first one wasted I guess.
My heart has palpitated all my life. And eye popping pain with them have became more and more frequent over the last year & months. All I can describe it as is a Palpitation with a Bolt of pain. With no insurance no one will check out my heart. With palpitations you indeed fell like your heart stops, flutters, races, etc... they are PVCs and It's all very frightening.
Pills I'm taking are progesterone and they are suppose to stop this particular bleeding, then supposedly within 3-5 days I will then get so called normal period. I have a feeling that nothing will be normal about it. This last 11 weeks have been HELL. Blood Clots the size of baseballs. So when this stops ( I hope pills do there job ) I pray I don't bleed to death during the next episode. I'm stressed to the MAX. It isn't fun that's for sure. So to these other people here save your remarks and Pray when you get to this point in your life you don't go through this. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I might shoot them, but wouldn't wish this extreme perimenopause on them.
Your 27 and scared, well I'm almost 53 and TERRIFIED. So your not alone.
