... years old having heavy bleeding lasting for a month at a time. I feel that there was not anything untoward but yet to get my results. I feel depressed, keep crying , no energy, have headaches which seem to cause pain at the front of head at the top and behind, Aching neck and shoulders. Feel strange in myself. When I saw the Gyno a few weeks ago and raised my concerns(my Daughter had it in and had a dreadful time, and had to have it taken out) He just said "You will be fine". I said you don't know that, he fobbed me off... I feel anxious and just want this alien thing out of me. I thought it was just a coil that stops periods. I did not read up on it. I could kick myself for allowing this. I do not know what other options I have. I feel my personality is changing already. I am a positive person but feel so down and do not know what to do. I have a sensitive body that does not take well to medication. If you have any ideas of any natural things that will help it would be much appreciated. When I was not bleeding I was fine but this was not pften. I am taking (since Sat) a natural Remedy for Perimenapause called Amberen Which is good and have started Wild Yam. I went to the Dr yesterday to organise having my bloods done to see what my hormone levels are so I can take the next step. What really annoys me is that I REALLY do KNow my own body and some Drs do not believe me. I want it out. Would natural progesterone be an option?
Switch to a different gynie doctor and have her or him fix your situation by removing the alien object that bothers you, and also stopping the bleeding problem. Sounds like you are being tortured and tormented rather than cared for, right? Why bleeding, yeah that's not right. And all of the discomfort and stress too! Go now my butterfly and seek help.
If I am understanding you correctly, at the age of 57, you are still having a period, which can last for weeks. However, you are not still having it on a monthly basis, correct? You had the implant installed to regulate your period and also to lessen flow.
I must say I am surprised your doctor did the implant without discussing or suggesting alternate methods, indepth, so that you could make an informed decision. It now appears you are having regrets about it but maybe more from lack of good, detailed information than from possible benefits for it.
Before you go jumping onboard the all "natural", homeopathic, naturopathy train... know exactly what you are treating because taking the "wrong" good stuff can be just as bad for you. So do wait to see what all the results of your blood workups are before beginning self-treatment. You may even benefit from seeing a naturopathic physician or homeopathic medicine to guide you in the right direction.
For instance, along with my primary care physician... I do consult with a chiropractor who specializes in kinesiology. Sometimes I do defer to his expertise and suggestions for treatment. I seem to feel better using his methods of treatment that do not include medicines that contain a long grocery list of side effects.
Medicine has its place but sometimes what is needed is a good sense of "self" and listening to it for answers.
