  • Yes. Mine got so bad that I ended up getting an ablation (HTA) done last October. I haven't had a period since!

  • No, my periods actually got a lot better. They used to be irregular and I had horrible pms, but after my first two pregnancies my periods became very regular (I can pretty much pin point the exact time I am going to get it) and I have little to no pms. Now of course I am pregnant again, so we will see how they are after this baby is born.

  • Go get on Mirena. I used to have really bad periods before I had my DD; I got a the IUD 6 weeks after and have had NO problems! My periods have actually damn-near stopped (no cramps, and sporatic spotting for 3-4 days rather than 6 days of heavy bleeding). I've had it for almost 2 years now; if my doctor won't tie my tubes when "removal time" comes, I'll def get another one.

  • Worse, much worse and did so after all three of my girls! I may look into that Mirena too.

  • My periods actually stopped since I was breastfeeding. So better I guess.

  • Well I was on birth controll pills for a long time after my youngest was born, but id say the last 6 months or so i have been off of them and yes ive noticed my periods are MUCH heavier, it is very annoying, and its bad enough to make me consider going back on to the pills. :(

  • with ds I don't remember but with DD -- oh yeah, I would actually have to call in to work EVERY MONTH for a 1/2 day b/c I literally could not walk from the pain... after a while it went back to normal.
