Experience

I was out in cerazette for heavy breeding from fibroids. First month was fine no period then bam! 14 weeks of bleeding from spotting to gushing (sorry tmi). Awful awful awful! My doc told me to double the dose to stop the bleeding that worked for a week then it started again so I rang doc who told me to stop. I’m bloated have bigger breasts and generally feel rubbish. Doc now referring me to gynae first the mirena coil to see if that works. I wish I had been one of those that it stopped periods for but no such luck I’m new anaemic and on iron tablets. Not the best experience.
