hi im new to this board, looking for a bit of advice.

in march 2011 i had my 3rd son via c-section i was then sterlized there & then.

i bf my son for 9 months when i stopped my periods were hell, i was leaking everywhere, having to leave work to change.

in april 2012 i had a marina coil fitted to help with the bleeding, but i bled continuasly with it in, wasnt alot but was still bleeding. last wed i went for another check up at gyne and they decided to take it out, since then i have had the most horrendis bleeding, huge clots every time i sit on the loo, going through a pack of pads a day. 

the gyne gave me one tablet to take for 4 days and the other to take all the time, i called my gp on tue as this is the worst it has ever been, i am going to my gp 2morrow morning to refer me to a private hospital as my gyne said i have to give it 3 months & wont see me till the 30th jan.

anyone got any advice for me i would be very greatful

thanks xxx

Oh, I'm so sorry! What a horrible thing to go through. Have the pills helped? Do you get a break from the bleeding like a normal period or is it continuous? I would ask about an Endometrial Ablation. They destroy the uterine lining so you bleed very little. I've seen a couple women here who have had it done and have been successful. How did your appointment go?

HI Sorry im just logging back on!

The bleeding was continuose, if im lucky i had a day here & there!

I decided i couldnt go on like this and went to see a private Gyne, Who was fantastic! I told him my history & he was straight to the point!

Ablasions- NO Due to having 0.6 of normal tissue due to sections

Hyterectomy- Yes, This was my only option, In a way i was so happy as i knew this is wot i had needed but the NHS wouldnt do it, So 2 weeks later i had my Total Vaginal Hysterectomy-  I am now 8 weeks Post op & i feel like a brand new person!

Recovery was hard, with having 3 young kids, But i feel in the last 8 years i have had 5 gyne ops and 3 children... it was the best thing i have done.
