I've been on my period for well over 2 months this time....I've had ongoing issues since 2007!!! Back then, I had insurance, but I feel like now since I lost my job & ins., no doctor will take me seriously & help me. In 2007, I had a hysterectomy; not b/c I was pregnant (never been pregnant, have 0 kids), but b/c dr thot that would clean things out & fix me. It worked temp., so he put me on birth control. The birth control gave me a blood clot, so I had an 8 day hospital stay. While in the hosp., they insisted I had internal bleeding & ran numerous tests, I told them the problem, but they couldn't believe me & checked anyway. I ended up getting 2 liters of blood. Now, I can't take estrogen pills. The dr tried giving me non-estrogen birth control, but that didn't work either. I most recently got the depo shot, which stopped the bleeding for about a week, but now it's back full force. So, the dr now says take 800 mg ibuprofin every 8 hours for 3 days, stop for 2 days, then repeat if needed. Well, this hasn't worked either. I also have an L shaped ovarian cyst on my left ovary which is not cancerous; had biopsy. I think I need a hysterectomy, but feel since I have no $ & no insurance, drs just refuse that option. I'm 35 years old & should have a healthy sex life, but I can't b/c the bleeding won't stop; it's frustrating & even causes me just to cry on occasion for no reason. Plz, someone help!!! What else can I do?!?!
