I am experiencing heavy mid cycle bleeding. I have read up on a few things that it may be and am seeing the dr. today. I really do not want to have a d and c or go on hormone therapy. Can anyone suggest what their experiences with this have been and alternatives to stopping it? The bleeding started as spotting about 1 week after my last period and has progressed into heavy clumpy bleeding. I am extremely weak and not feeling well as a result. Has anyone experienced this? I remember my mother experienced this in her late forties and it was the result of fibroids. She had a d and c to stop the bleeding. Any suggestions please! I read in C. Northup's book that applying castor oil packs on the abdomen may help. Please let me know your experiences with this!
I've had a uterine fibroid, ovarian cyst, and other hormonal problems. In fact, I think they came about following Dr. Northup's dietary advice in Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, especially the advice to eat lots of soy. I went from having moderate hormonal issues to extreme ones. The castor oil packs helped a little, but not much.
