I'm having my first period for 3 months and it is heavy and painful. Prior to my AVR I was becoming irregular (no doubt due to age, 50 on Sunday) but never 13 weeks between. Now I do understand that the operation is probably the reason it's been so long in between but my question is whether the warfarin is the reason it's heavier? I'm guessing it's quite likely. I'm already taking iron as I'm still anaemic following the op. 😔. I used to be able to take naproxen for the pain which is amazing for menstrual cramps but can't take that anymore either.
My other question re warfarin is about hair loss. This hasn't happened to me yet but I just wanted to ask those who have experienced this side effect, how long had you been taking warfarin before you noticed hair loss?
Thank you all.
