Experience

I bled almost everyday for 6 months – not heavily, never heavily enough for a tampon, but I always needed a pantyliner or very thin pad. it was very frustrating but after about 6 months it settled down and my ‘periods’ became regular and got lighter and lighter. After about a year, I’ve stopped bleeding altogether. It has taken a while to get to no bleeding, but worth it for me.
