How can excessive vaginal bleeding due to an ovarian cyst and fibroid be treated?

Hello. My name is Vee a 50 years old woman with a very heavy irregular period. After I had a ultrasound, the result were a cysts of 4.5 cm on the left ovary, and a 10 cm fibrosis... I am on norethisterone, 5 mg , three times a day for 10 days but the day I stop take it, my period is started again and again. My own doctor, from Romania, ( now I live in the UK) prescribed me Duphastone and advised me to take the pills in the same time with norethisterone , but the Dr. here said isn't necessary. I am very confused, depressed, tired of loosing so much blood and my hemoglobin cones in a very lower point meaningly 6. Please kindly advise me better, as I feel myself list of these interminable period. Thank you in advance. Vee.

Duphaston is not recommended in your condition. If the menstrual irregularities are not getting treated by medical management, it is better to opt for a surgical method.

Removal of the fibroid or hysterectomy can be preferred.

Hi I am 39, and have type 2 diabetes. My periods are normally very regular and last 4-5 days. Recently i had a fall and was given anti-inflammatories which caused internal bleeding. This stopped when i stopped taking the anti-inflammatories (as advised by my Dr). My next period came right on time however 4 days after i finished, i bled again - big time - like flooded with no warning. I took a Primulut N tablet which stopped the bleeding but 2 days later it started again (but not as heavy). I took another Primulut N tablet which stopped it but the next morning it started again. Is this normal..???
