The never ending period....

Hi all,

I have been on my period since Labor Day. I went to the dr a week and a half ago, and was put on 5 days worth of Provera, which did make it stop.

I hope you have made another appointment. Often, they save appointment openings for those who need more immediate care. You should have some tests done. An ultrasound could check for fibroids or ovarian cysts. A blood test will help identify hormonal imbalances. There are many things that could cause prolonged bleeding.

Let us know how you are doing!
