No seriously, men, keep out! I have progressively had heavier bleeding in the first 2-3 days of my monthlies. I mean, I'm in the bathroom EVERY HOUR - Once an HOUR - to change a super tampon and overnight pad. That's some seriously heavy bleeding. Well, it so happens my period started on Monday and immediately became more than I could handle and I was preparing for my flight to FL (business) so I called my DR and she prescribed Provera (I got the generic) to help with the heavy flow. She said the therapeutic dose was 60mg and started me on 30mg and man, it worked!! By the morning of my trip, the flow was manageable and under control. On my first day in FL, I was so busy that I skipped a dose and it slowly began to grow heavier, but then I took the pill and it got better. I only took it for 3 full days and it helped a lot. When I did some research on the medication, I see that progesterone hormones can actually cause heavier bleeding, but alternatively, helps heavy periods. I find that odd. Anyway, I know that some of you have had hysterectomies, heavy bleeding, and other issues. I'm not due for my annual (which is now my biennial instead! oops) until late next month, so I just thought I'd ask if anyone has any ideas, other than perimeno, why my periods are so heavy all of a sudden. And if anyone has experienced the use of progesterone and if so, how they felt on it. I felt GREAT. I felt strong and not weepy or pissy like I usually do those first few days.
