Been suffering for 5 years with long and heavy periods sometimes up to 8 weeks at a time. Finally told earlier this year the cause was several large fibroids. Had a myomectomy 4weeks ago, to solve the problem but sadly it seems to have not worked. Been back to hospital twice now due to heavy bleeding and pass huge blood clots. They can’t give me any answers and have just put me on Norethisterone for 3 months continuously. As I also have an under active thyroid I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience? And also if any who has taken Norethisterone has felt depressed whilst on it and very tired. I can’t stop crying and have no interest in anything at all and wondered if they were side effects of having synthetic hormones in my body. Been to my GP but they were not really helpful even though I explained how I was feeling.
Thank you in advance for any advice offered.
