has this happened to you

Hi, just thought i'd add mine to the others as this could also be me.
I go through super plus tampon & 2 jumbo pads in 10 to 15 mins & can no longer leave the house at these times
1) cos of the blood loss not being under contral &
2) cos i have passed out more than once in public.
On the very rare occasions i'm forced to pop out to pick my daughter up from school, i have to put a big bin liner on the car seat & daren't get out of the car
oh, and i've ruined our bed but see little point in getting a new one until after the op.
No more bleeding! Won't that be great!!!

You know, as my surgery draws nearer I begin to wonder ( as many of us probably do) whether I really need this invasion of my body. I know things aren't right (pain, cysts, fibroids) and I bleed/clot so heavily, despite medication. As I read what some of you have written here, I realize a super heavy duty tampon and a heavy duty towel in just under an hour isn't so bad. But it also isn't normal. I'm glad I'm having my surgery, despite little nagging doubts, before I get to the even more debilitating stage that some of you have had to suffer. (Or am I still trying to convince myself lol)

Strangely enough, since getting my surgery date, my symptoms have reduced and my body is behaving much more like it should. Anyone else get this?

I think you should probably call your dr. It does not sound like you should be bleeding so much. I hope they can get you in. Hugs Raymo

I consider myself blessed. I don't bleed nearly the amount as some of our fellow sisters. Granted, I bleed more than I should and more than is normal, but I can usually manage with a super plus tampon and Pad changing it every 30-45 minutes when I am on a real period. My breakthough bleeding is a lot lighter and can be dealt with via a heavy pad or tampon. My issue is the break through stuff doesn't stop. I have not been able to have sex in weeks because I can't stop bleeding. My poor DBF looks so sad....I hate to tell him after my surgery it'll be about 6 more weeks...

Isn't it great that our significant others put up with our malfunctioning parts and the situations that they present?

Hugs to you all...

Hi ladies,

I guess this could be another post, but I'm wondering...

I noticed some of us with heavy bleeding have adenomysis. Now here's a medical question... why do we bleed so bad because of this disorder? From what I've read, adenomyosis grows into the muscle tissue of the uterus, so why would it cause the uterine lining to bleed so much?
