I have a daughter that was diagnosed with abnormal uterine bleeding a few weeks ago after trying to stablize her cycles with birth control.

Hello! That poor girl. She must be so frustrated. I can tell how frustrated you are. I would trust your gut. Get a second opinion if you can. I do think some doctors tend to take the easy way out and try to do a quick (and often cheaper) fix. It is up to you to demand the treatment you deserve. Educate yourself and talk to other women about their doctors.

I hope she gets some answers. Don't be afraid to stand up if you think you aren't getting the right treatment!

That sounds very similar to a friend of mine (now 22, mother of 1) who has endometriosis. She was treated with depo and said it was great while she was on it but has gradually headed back to how it used to be since going off it. Best of luck in getting answers!
