If you've been reading my blog over the last three years, you will know that I had hormonal issues after the birth of both my children. With Madison, I was put on birth control to stop what I like to call The Neverending Period (sing with me to the tune of The Neverending Song — this is the period that never ends, it goes on and on my friends, some hormones started flowing it . . . . I'll end it there LOL). I thought I was in the clear.
Then I had Will. That's when Part II of The Neverending Period started. I was back into 8 week periods or more! The problem with this time around was that nothing and I mean nothing would stop it. We tried I think a total of 9 different birth controls and none of them worked. We tried estrogen. We tried no birth control. Nothing would stop it. I was crabby. I was emotional. And it sucked. I ended up with a hysteroscopy and D&C. It was painful. The recovery was worse than when I miscarried. What did they find? Absolutely nothing. No reason for why I was having the problems I was.
I'm writing this post to give you all an update, because I am getting hits on my old posts from women who have this same problem looking for answers. What has happened in the last year? Well, after the D&C, I had the lightest period I've ever had in my entire life. Since that period last September, I've not had one since. Can you believe it? I'm still on Seasonque. Every 3 (aff) months I take a pregnancy test to make sure I'm not pregnant, and I'm enjoying life.
If you are a woman dealing with this (or something like this), this is life at the end of the tunnel. There really is! Get your doctors involved right away and don't give up!
