Hi Everyone, I've been lurking for a while but this is the first time I've posted. It's a great comfort to read everyone's experiences and know I'm not alone. I'm 50 and still have "regular" cycles although they are 3 weeks instead of the old 4 weeks. I've been bleeding so heavily this past year - fortunately it just lasts one day. I've mentioned it to my Dr. but she doesn't seem too concerned (last appt. was 2 months ago). At my heaviest times I will soak thru the largest,heaviest pad every half hour. I'm grateful that I'm a telecommuter and work at home, otherwise not sure how I would deal with this (I feel for you ladies who have to go to the office!). I've got clots much larger than a quarter. Yesterday I stood up from my office chair and felt a huge long flood - ran to the bathroom - it went everywhere, it looked like someone had cut off their arm by accident. I'm sorry to be so detailed but I am just so sick of this, it makes me feel disgusting. I am anemic and take iron and eat iron-rich foods, but of course still feel so lethargic. My question is - why doesn't my doctor seem too concerned? Should I go back? I didn't really tell her the gory details of what I experience but maybe I should. I wonder if she's not worried because like I said I only bleed heavy for one day, then it goes to nothing. Maybe I'm just wanting to vent here - like I said, it's just disgusting and I'm so grateful I work at home. On those days I can't leave the house - tried before - but any errands over a half hour and I bleed right thru my pants and a few times into the car seat. Thanks for listening ....
