Hi Shannon....may I ask how old you are and if you have or desire any children?...if you don't want any more children, you might want to ask about the Thermachoice Balloon Ablation or the Hydrothermal Ablation. When performed correctly, these procedures have high success rates. I have had a Thermachoice Balloon Ablation a few years ago for heavy bleeding with clotting and to this day I do not have ANY monthly bleeding...not one drop...I went from being almost bedridden and sick to my stomach, anemic, migraines, and heavy bleeding to absolutely no periods at all!...check into it....if your GYN Dr. doesn't do the procedure, then just shop around for one that does....good luck!....Kim, BSN, GYN Team Leader

Hello All: I'm hoping to get some advise.I began having menstrual migraines back in Feb. 2008. I went in to see my doctor who told me to start taking my birth control pills (Zovia) for 3 months straight and then at the end of the 3rd month have a period. I did this and my period started fine but I began to pass large clots and bleeding heavily. I called to doc. and tried to get in they didn't seem to care, so I went to see a new doctor (who I really like). The new doctor put me on Seasonique, and the first 2 periods were fine. I was supposed to start my next period on about 2-9-09, well, it started on 2-2-09 and hasn't stoped!!! Same as before heavy bleeding and clotting. On 3-9-09 I had a D&C, I went to the doctor today and she said that there is no sign of cancer nothing abnormal that medically I seem to be fine. I just have a disfunctional uterus!!! I'm still bleeding fairly heavy no clots, I have never had any pain, slight cramping from time to time nothing major. At this point she wants me to double up on my Seasonique for 2 days to see if that will stop the bleeding. She wants me to give it a month to see if the D&C worked. At this point she says the only other solutions are IUD, Endometrial Ablation, Hysterectomy.I just want to get some feedback from women who are going through the samething, any opinions that you have are welcome. Thanks, Shannon
