You don't say how old you are but 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 I wasn't expecting ( 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 endometrium 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 ( side affects ). 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.
Pills I'm taking are progesterone ( perimenopause your Estrogen surges and you lack the 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. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I might shoot them, but wouldn't wish this extreme perimenopause on them.
If this goes on and nobody will see you, if as terrified as me go to the E.R.
Because I don't know what to expect in reality, but terrified I'm going to start hemorrhaging. Your not alone. The MIND can be your worst enemy. Mine sure is. Hang in there.
