Periods??

Ok don't really like this subject but when I was diagnosed 13 years ago it was because my periods had completely stopped. Now I have gone to the other end of the spectrum and that my periods can be horrendous to point I cant move as it's hurts and is almost as if my legs wouldn't work. I can't move today and if I do have to sit straight back down have adequate protection but it's not enough. My period now last a average of nine days and has huge clots and isn't pleasant smelling sorry guys for graphic Ness . Want to know if anyone else had suffered this bad as I have resorted in the past to using 1 of my kids nappies if caught short. Obviously folded over lol. I have had smear all normal last month so that's a relief. Sorry in advance love to all. X

  • How are your iron levels? Sounds crazy, but low iron can cause heavy bleeding. I used to have ones like that when I was a teenager. Got no sympathy, either, even though I would often faint. I was ecstatic when they stopped completely in my 30s.

  • Thanks angel will check with doctors although they tell me my bloods are fine when they have been dire lol. I think I am going to get 1 of these private blood test kits you do and send it of especially for thyroid and stuff. I can't rely on docs anymore unfortunately. Will Deffo supplement my iron tho ty but will have to ask on here to see how I can do that without a script x

  • Female problems are a clinical symptom of hypothyroidism and you may not yet been on sufficient thyroid hormones to 'sort things out'.

  • Ty shaws will go read link now thanks x

  • I'm also having problems.

    Mine were very heavy but the last 5-6 months they became irregular and very light. I saw a few gyno's but nobody can explain anything. Are you hypo or hyper? I think hormones mess with each other.

  • Hi miss I'm very much hypo now I used to fluctuates between hyper and hypo when first diagnosed but now I'm hypo and periods get worse every month 😭x

  • I understand. maybe birth control pills can help you to reduce the blood and pain but of course messing with hormones while hypo isn't the best thing to do.

    I really want to have a baby in a couple of months I really hope the periods won't become a big issue for me!

    I don't understand I'm being treated for hypo and I feel good but something is off obviously.

  • I'm think you will be fine babe. Hypo can take years to gather speed but if you are adequately medicated u should be ok. I have had 3 more babies since being diagnosed after having 4 miscarriages. I didn't know I was hypo and wasn't being medicated at the time and that was causing me to miscarry. Once started on med's soon got pregnant no problem x my hormones and thyroid seem to stabilise when I been pregnant good luck hun keep me posted exciting x

  • That last message was supposed to read breast cancer sorry x
