Hey, I am 18 years old, Ever since i was 10 years old I have suffered from ridiculously heavy periods, they would not only last 1 week but i was on a period for 4 months once, i have tried every single pill including the microgynon which gave me terrible headaches, cerazette which made me terribly depressed and many more, none of them have agreed with my body. I have also tried the injection and implant, nothing has worked. Not only do i get heavy period i also am crippled over in pain every time of the month, i have had numerous amounts of scans that have looked at my ovaries and i do have a small cyst on my right one, but doctors are not concerned. Last month was the worst period I have had in all 8 years, it got to the point in which i was wearing 12 thick heavy pads and having to change every 30 minutes (tmi sorry) I have returned to my doctor and they said i only have 2 options which is the coil, which is a new one called JAYDESS or i will have to have a hysterectomy. Many of my family have the coil and it didn't agree with them and just made them worse. I really am desperate for help and am seriously thinking about having a hysterectomy which at my age is serious. I was just hoping someone may have help or another idea, i really am desperate!!
