I've had abnormal periods my whole life and after finding a new doctor, someone finally decided to do something about it.

You may want to take 4 Advil! Check with your doc but that is the prescription strength. I will be looking for you after Thursday for an update. Hope you do okay!

I had a SIS done about a month ago and I found it to be very painful. Like you, I have a problem with abnormal periods. I bleed for weeks and weeks at a time. I have had this problem for years, but because of my age I was never able to find a doctor who would do anything about it. I'm now 28 and found a doctor who is willing to figure it out and fix the problem, which may mean a hysterectomy. I've never had kids and have a very, very small uterus so I don't quality for the less envasive procedures. I go back to the doctor on Friday to decide the next steps.

Hello! Nice to see you again! I dont have any personal experience with it. Wish I could help. If you have a low tolerance, then it will probably be more painful for you. Did you mention it to your doc? What do they think is going on?
