Ladies.... Have You Or Are You Considering Getting Your Periods Stopped?

Ladies.... Have You Or Are You Considering Getting Your Periods Stopped?

What I mean is.. Each month I am in pure agony for over a week upto my period. My legs, back, migraines, the works.
Would the doctor put me on some thing that will stop my period, so I don't have the agony or limited mobility for two weeks a month?

I had a Uterine Oblation about 10 months ago. Best thing I ever did. I recommend it highly. I had really bad periods for years and it virtually took them away completely. I have had about 4 days of spotting since the operation. AWESOME is all I can say!

IUDs don't get rid of periods. Deprovera shots do. All this too late for me I finally had a hysterectomy about 20 years ago.

I was on Norethisterone, you take it 3 times a day. It's 5mg tablets. I was on them for years. I started my periods when I was 9. I suffered PMS & PMT, breakthrough bleeding, clotting, you name it and I went through it. I was on every pill to help it, but never worked. I got put on Deprovera injections and they didn't work even though they gave me a double dose every 10 weeks instead of every 12 weeks. Problem with the injections is the weight gain. Then I got a roller ball obulation which is a heated ball that burns the lining of your womb and this helped for a while, it really stopped the heavy bleeding which was a huge problem for me too. Then it all started again and I had had enough, so got put back to gynaecologist that finally decided to sterilise me. At this point I was 28 and had went through excruciating, embarrassing period problems for nearly 20 years. The sterilisation helped with some problems but I was still bleeding. Got put on Norethisterone again but was still having extreme pain for 3 weeks out of the month. A year later I had went back to gynaecology again and got a new gynaecologist who said that I had been through enough with my periods and decided to finally give me a hysterectomy. Now I don't have any problems with the monthly problems. But everyone is different. Just keep on at your doctors and get referred to gynaecology. If your not happy with the gynaecologist you get ask to be put under someone you feel comfy enough. In my experience women gynaecologists are mean & don't help. If you need anymore info just message me xxx

I know it's not a cure for fibro.. I mean each month is exacerbated by my period... I cannot walk, crippling pain. So to give me releifbto from monthly agony, just to cope with general fibro
