Looking for advice. My daughter of 20yrs has been having heavy periods and irregular, sometimes lasting 15 days, off for a few, then back for more days. Light to medium some of the time, heavy other times. She was recently given tranexamic which she took and then a prescription for the pill, which she is loath to take. She tried the pill for 6 mths and didn't feel good and besides, we prefer to get to the route cause. She feels agitated at times and also has the usual 'downs' that can come with your menstrual cycle. My Mum has Thyroid issues and what I have read, these are all related - sex hormones, thyroid, etc. I myself had terribly heavy periods which resulted in a hyst last year after fibroids were discovered - afterwards I read too my Estrogen can feed fibroids.
Our daughter has never had blood tests taken before and I have read here there is a specific way to take the tests and what to ask for, so your guidance in this respect would be helpful. Which sex hormones, which thyroid tests etc?
Thank you in advance
