I've been suffering with extremely long, heavy, painful periods for roughly 9 months now and was first seen by my GP around Christmas then got referred to the Gynaecologist. My periods can last up to 3 weeks, however norethisterone was prescribed and they stopped the bleed. The pain continued, and painkillers don't make a difference. As soon as I stopped taking norethisterone the bleeding continued as it did before. I'm 18, but had a large ovarian cyst when I was 14 which ruptured leaving me extremely ill. Has anyone suffered with this, could it be endometriosis or maybe more cysts, or will I simply have to deal with it for the coming years? Thank you! (forgot to mention I have had 3 inconclusive ultrasound scans)
