It's my first time at this board. I am desperately looking for thoughts. since January I have had 4 periods one light and three heavy. The heavy is not so unusual for me but the cycle is!
I have always had wonky cycles have had 2 D&C's in the past, both helped but only for a short while. I have discussed the problem with my dr. before who refers me to the ob/gyn.
I feel like the best option might be an IUD? She has clearly been steering me towards an ablation... The IUD would be expensive since it's considered birth control and not a necesary procedure( I think if she signed off that it was medically needed healthcare or insurance might pay for it) but at this point I don't care about the cost. I can't constantly have a period and all the PMS that comes with it. My two worst symptoms are severe migraines(every time I have a period) and moodiness(weepy to angry and back again in moments)
I just want to know that whatever I choose it will be a long term solution.
P.S I am 37 yrs old, healthiest I've been since high school although I still have about 20 lbs to lose and have already lost 20 over the last couple of years. 2 kids, age 9 and 11. Both fairly regular pregnancies and births.
