Well, peri-menopause & CD is fun isn't it! Okay, my last vaginal bleed (doesn't even qualify as a period) was from July 8th to Aug 21st (the day I was diagnosed with the gallstone)! As most of you have experienced, the CD is always worse when you're on your period. I'll also mention that I already take B12 injection once a month.
In the last 2 weeks I've had a full abdominal ultrasound with contrast, a CCK padida scan and a transvaginal (saline) ultrasound. I have 2-3 tiny fluid filled fibroids in my uterus and 1 on my ovary. Nothing to worry about. However, the OB GYN says if I have another bleed like that (the irregular/heavy bleeds have been going on since 2004) we are going to discuss "natural hormones" (no estrogen involved) and/or surgery.
Now considering I'm not off the prednisone (which makes hormones wacky anyway) and the fact that my CD maintenance drugs are imuran & humira....would you try the natural hormones for awhile or go for the risk of major infection and surgery? Since this is year 3 of the on again off again symptoms, I am getting discouraged with this. But being 47 and the fact that I haven't had a period this month yet....I may be headed through this on my on anyway!
I value your opinions and would greatly appreciate your input....please be honest!
