I’m a 45 year old mother of six. My husband and I practice NFP. For a long time, my periods have been very heavy and lasted eight to ten days, with older, darker blood the last few days. The spacing varies between three weeks and eight weeks over the last year.
I went to a military GYN last week to ask about possible treatments. The ones she offered were: ablation (no, I might be still ovulating so I don’t want to ruin my uterine lining in case we conceived); Prometrium; or Provera. I’ve looked online and found out that Provera seems to be a BCP, so I don’t want that. Prometrium has many warnings for health risks.
Are there any safe treatments for this or am I just to manage as best I can until menopause? She’s going to perform a endometrial biopsy on Tuesday, after a pregnancy test, to see if there is anything wrong.
