Period not stopping! ....πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

I'm on day 9 of my period and I'm still bleeding red like I've just started.

My period usually lasted 7 days before where I used to bleed for 4 days then it would taper off until i was clear on day 7.

For the last 2 cycles, I've continued to bleed red blood for almost 10/11 days. I don't get the usual brown blood in the end ether. It just stops eventually.

And sometimes it stops and just when I think I've finished, I start bleeding red again.

Does anyone have this? How do you deal with it?

I was already low in iron before this started and I don't want to be dealing with Iron tablets for the rest of my life. If if helps I'm 46.

Please help.

Thanks xx

Hello! I have this - bleed from anything up to 14 days. I have adenomyosis and I'm going through perimenopause.....I'm 44. Also on iron as i have low ferritin. Makes you feel rotten doesn't it.Unusual (for you) bleeding patterns should always be checked out though. Xx

Sorry for butting in, but how was your adeno diagnosed? Xx

Based on symptoms and a lap that picked up a bulky uterus and an internal ultrasound that picked up an irregular junctional zone x

Hello πŸ‘‹.

So we're sort of similar! Yes it's terrible, I hate it. Was bad enough dealing with endometriosis now I have this on topπŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

I have a phone consultation with GP next week. Let's see what she says. But yeah, perimenopause did enter my mind. Ugh


Would be good to know what your gp says. Feel like I'm dismissed as being a neurotic female most of the time! X

Oh I've gotten that enough times!. But I'm persistent. They have no choice but to deal with me.🀣🀣 It's not all in my head and they can't keep using that card.

Hi May find that you are low in other vitamins- Your cycle may be longer this time because of

stress factors. I had to take iron but found eating banana's - helped with a high fibre cereal


My periods varied a lot- still get the bloated stomach,some bleeding even now.

Also gentle exercise helped-

Big hug

Thank you so much. You're right. I should check out other deficiencies. Also yes, stress is a large factor in my life as I'm having to care for my elderly mother 24/7 on top of kids housework, etc. πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

Thanks for the tips. I love bananas so I'll try them with a high fibre breakfast.

I'm too knackered to exercise. I run around after everyone all day anyway! I hope it counts. Lol
