I LOVE your comment about the nose bleed! Right on! If you were my patient, I would want to check you for bleeding disorders, such as Von Willebrands disease. This is a fairly common hereditary disorder of platelet function that causes heavy menstrual bleeding. In fact, the most common symptom of the disorder is heavy periods.
There are other more rare conditions that should be ruled out too, such as hemophilia, etc. If you were my patient, I would want you to get details from any other family members with similary symptoms.
If it turned out not to be a bleeding disorder/coagulopathy, my next step would be to consider a Mirena IUD. These can work wonderfully to reduce bleeding or sometimes even stop bleeding altogether. Lupron might be another option, because some of your symptoms ( pain ) are suspicious for endometriosis.
Well, at least here are some things to consider--hope it helps!
thanks......The doctors did mention the IUD but they have so many side-effects...I kinda been scared to try them.....
