I'm 23yrs old and ive had irregular periods for the past 5yrs so I went to my gyno after bleeding for a month straight,had a d&c a year ago and still irregular..birth control made me miserable and all I need was vomit... so finally had a period for 8days was off for 2 days and back on now..so my gyno put me on lysteda 2 days ago and I'm passing huge painful clots!! Is that normal? What to do?
I was prescribed lysteda for heavy menstrual bleeding,i was like you having a period for days often lasting weeks. The lysteda is taken to ease blood clots,it works for some but unfortunately it did'nt work for me,i was later diagnosed with endometriosis,have you being tested for this??
Give the tablets another few days to see will they work,if not I might suggest you go back to gyne if the lysteda does'nt work and ask him/her about getting tested for endo? Although you had a d&c,i had one too and my own doc kept telling me it was'nt possible for me to have endo,but after years of suffering and not knowing what was going on with my body,i went to gyne and was told i was at stage 3. Look up endometriosis in the search and you can read more info on it,see can you relate more to the signs and symptoms of this! You may or may not have it,it can be treated,its just to find the right treatment so you wont have to suffer as badly as you are now!
If the lysteda does'nt work for you,please go back to gyne and check about the endo,the sooner you are diagnosed the quicker you can start treatment. I had signs since i was 16and my doc kept fobbing me off,i was only diagnosed last year at 24,the endo had spread to my ovary and womb and causing my insides to fuse together. I had an op to have this fixed,i'm not telling you this to scare you,i would just love if someone told me about this long ago so i would'nt have to go through many years of torture with periods,pains and exsessive bleeding! Look up endo like i said,let me know what you think,could this sound like symptoms you are having?
Best of luck and take care! You will find something that works for you!!!
