I know exactly how you feel....I too suffered extremely heavy periods throughout my teenage years....so much so that I went on the deprovera injection all throughout my 20's. I never had a period for 10 years....and although I would never
recommend this to anyone....it was absolute bliss!! Now in my 30's and off the deprovera injection and ttc...the heavy periods have returned
I have subsequently been diagnosed with PCOS which is the underlying problem with my heavy periods.....something you might want to investigate yourself?? You should discuss it with your doctor and have some blood tests to determine if you have any hormonal imbalances. If you are not planning another bub anytime soon, birthcontrol pills/implants are meant to help. I'm ttc so birthcontrol is out of the question for me, and therefore this is something I must live with every month. Sorry if TMI...but I 'survive' by using incontinence pads (tena or poise) instead of normal pads and for those really heavy couple of days, I actually fold a couple of viva papertowels into 3rds and lay them ontop of the pads for that extra absorbsion....again, sorry if TMI, but it works for me..
