Hi Miss G,
You could ask your doctor for some medication to stop or slow down your bleeding.
There are 3 different typical ones that are used depending on what your doctor thinks: Novasure Treatment a day procedure where they insert a wand into your vagina and blast it into your cervix for 90 sec to lessen the lining. Not sure how that would feel or anything. Levonorgestrel IUD Treatmenb Better known as Mirena, this birth control device is inserted into the cervix to provide continuous protection against pregnancy. The FDA approved it for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in October 2009 after patients reported it stopped their menstrual cycle. It can cause unwanted side effects, however, including pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea (severe menstrual pain) and irregular spotting - this is what happened to me while on Mirena for only one week 2 times. Lysteda Treatment this non-hormonal drug was first prescribed in 1986 to stop bleeding in people with hemophilia during dental procedures, helping to control excessive bleeding. Recently scientists discovered it also reduced heavy menstrual bleeding in women, which led to its approval for the treatment of heavy menstrual cycles in November 2009. Like Mirena, Lysteda also carries some risks, and can increase the risk of blood clots, heart attack or stroke. This risk also increases if women are already undergoing hormonal treatment, such as using birth control or hormone shots to prevent pregnancy. It can also cause pain in the abdomen, back, joints and muscles.
Also the other thing that can work is taking a whack load of birth control which can stop your bleeding as well but there are side effects to that too. This is the method I usually used following the ER guidelines as they would prescribe some of these for a length of time, the only problem is it can come back and is only a temporary solution.
Hope you get your blood checked as well during this time as you don't want to become Anemic. Anemia has its own lists of problems associated with it.
Hope this helps and good luck.
