    I have had endometrial ablation and it has worked ok, some times my periods are heavy and sometimes they are just spotting for about a week. I still get alot of cramping and aching though. Was meant to have a hysterectomy earlier this year but backed out.
    Apparently for some it goes back to normal heavy periods eventually.

    I have a mirena. Initially I had quite heavy spotting, continuously for like 4 months. I was on the verge of having it removed but it's now settled down
    To pretty much nothing. I occasionally have some light spotting or blood when I wipe and that's it. I was getting quite painful periods after I had my baby. My perineum ached so badly I felt like I'd been kicked with a large boot. It's so much better now!

    Nutrition is a complex subject, and there is more at play than the mere ingestion of the OCP.

    How the liver metabolises drugs is actually a subject of pharmacology which is studied extensively, and there is a wealth of knowledge about how the liver does this. Which enzymes, coenzymes and other factors involved, is actually well understood. If you look up a drug such as the ingredients of the OCP, in a pharmacology text, you will be able to find these hepatic (liver) enzymatic pathways in detail. In addition to the % of the drug which is excreted by hepatic deactivation, and the % excreted unchanged by the kidney.

    The use of synthetic hormones in areas of medicine such as IVF has also been studied extensively, and IVF has been around long enough now for there to be plenty of longitudinal data available.

    Not to mention that alfoil causes ADD/HD.

    Default How to stop periods

    I was on the pill and skipped the sugar pills when I didn't want my period and it was great but I had to come off it last year before a surgery and haven't gone back on it and my periods were once again long and heavy (7 days of heavy heavy bleeding and 2 days of light bleeding followed by 2 days of spotting) and on a whim decided I would try vitex and raspberry leaf as I had heard it can help with pms symptoms and toning the uterus and since then I have 3-4 days light bleeding and only a day spotting and it's done.

    Edited to add that it was on a complete whim I started on these because normally I wouldn't bother as I see medical matters should be practiced by medical Drs. But if you do decide to try a herbal method please check with your gp before started as some can interact with some meds.

    Love the response on this. Gave me the giggles. Let's see pick a doctor who specialises in women's health or someone that wants to give you a special herbal tablet to take the pain away. Yeah um I'd go the women's health professionals thanks.

    I spoke to my gyno and due to my history best option for me.

    I had a history of very heavy bleeding and no chance of having any more kids due to ectopic gone horribly wrong.
    I had been on meds to slow/ stop the bleeding and I was bleeding every couple of weeks and for a week after BD with the hubby.

    I am too young for a hysto so doc suggested this. It doesn't always have a success rate like mine and it may grow back but he is optimistic it won't be till menopause.
