I have had abnormal Uterine Bleeding for the past 6 months but it has gotten very bad in the past 3..I ave had 23 day cycles of bleeding wih only 11 day breaks...they are very very heavy and I have spent the past 2 months pretty much in the bed.I have was also in the ER for 7 hours where they TONS of test..my kids summer has pretty much been them sitting inside because I cant leave the house and we live on the beach...and we have a pool.but I cant go anywhere because I am constantly messing up my clothes..I went to the gyno yesterday and she is aware that I have strssed induced HBP..it was 114/66 in her office but at the hospital it was 156/107..her answer to my problem was Low dose Birth control pills....Sprintec..is wht they are called..I have yet to take one because I am also 35 and overweight...but I am working on it and I have lost 13 lbs(yay me!!!) so far..would have probably lost more if I wasn't stuck in the house in the bed all day... Does anyone one else take them with any of these issues? Or know how long I would have to take them before it would affect me? Thans so much and I am so sorry it is so long....

I also wanted to mention...my hubby is fixed...so there is no need for pregnancy protection or birth control other than my irregular bleeding.

Has your doctor suggested having a uterine ablation done? They take and burn the lining of your uterus. I would take the pills and see if it helps, otherwise, I would look into other options, like the ablation.

 Definitely try the pills to see if they help. If not, you really do need to explore other options with your gyno. I would even go so far as to get a second opinion.

Good luck

Sorry, no idea, but if you trust your dov, go with what he says. Just don't smoke.

Thanks ladies...I am taking the meds..and they are working but they are also causing me other issues..like crzy morning sickness like nausea and muscle weekness..rapid heartbeat..as far as ablation..we discussed tht I am an excellent candidate for it but she said that we needed to get the homones settled forst and then worry about that..so we will just see how things go... thanks again
