sad  Well so much for todays consultation with my consultant ive got the period from hell i called his secretary and i have to make an appointment 1st opportunity i get.
Thats almost 2 months now i have not had my metho with one illness and another i really surprised i have not ended up in the hospital i know for sure the methotrexte is working.
Ive never had so much problems with my periods until i had crohns disease they last for almost 2 weeks now and the pain is unbearable and they are really heavy i think i had better get myself checked out and see whats going on.
If its not one thing its another so im spending the day in bed baby shopping yes again!!!!!!!! lol :-) :-) :-)
Does anyone else notice a change in there periods since they have had crohns?this cant be normal surely!

I agree you should get checked out. I do see some irregularity when flaring though. But 2 weeks is a long time.

I would like to suggest that you find a good GYN physician and get an opinion as you may have some other cause for the long bleeding cycle. It is important to take care of all the parts of our body as everything is not always traced back to the Crohn's.  Just a gentle reminder.

I really do care and want you to get as well as possible. :)

I also recommend some form of birth control if your gyn says it is "just" your period causing it. Mine has kept my period from making my crohns worse.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you are "steralized" as you put it, they leave your ovaries. My sister had that done also, and she is on a low dose of birth control because she was having forever, whenever periods.

Angelang I have been through this too. My periods were always mixed up and irregular, but about two years ago they got completely out of control. They started coming closer and closer together and lasting longer and longer. I would have maybe 2 to 4 days of the month where I would not be bleeding. It was so annoying. Then it got very painful. Near labor like pain. Started passing clots. I was put on two birth control pills and it did nothing at all to ease things. Finally, my OB/GYN decided to do a uterine ablation. This was the best thing ever! It's where they burn the inside of your uterus with hot water (you have to be sure you don't want any more kids.) The hot water sloughs off the inside lining of your uterus and you don't have periods anymore. Whoo Hoo!! I apparently also had a polyp which was removed at the same time and an internal fibroid which would shrivel after the procedure. I don't know if Crohn's caused all these problems, but I am just glad to have them over with now.
