Hello I have had irregularly light periods usually any where from 19 to 30 days apart ever since I have gotten off of birth control over two years ago and over the last year my cycles seemed to have gotten even more 17 to 20 days apart. I was told I had a hormone imbalance so my doctor suggested putting me back on birth control which I thought was ridiculous seeing as how that is what messed me up in the first place. My fiancee and I had been trying conceive for all that time with no luck I'm guessing because of this issue so if I was put back on BC how is that ever going to help? I then started looking into a more natural way to get my hormones into order...
I started taking Macca and Vitex after reading such great things about them, along with Echineacha and Primerose Oil capsules in the morning and at night as directed to on the bottle. I started at the very end of my monthly cycle and to my surprise twenty eight later my period came. I thought this was the end of my irregular periods but this period was much different than any other I have ever had, it is supper heavy with really big blood clots! I mean I go through pads by the hour. At day two of this crazy bleeding I went to the hospital where the Doctor told me that my uterus hadn't been completely shedding its lining and had in fact been storing it stretching out my uterus(which would explain why my Fiancee had thought I looked pregnant) I was told to let my body naturally cleanse itself and if it didn't stop in ten days to come back and I would probably need a DNC. I am on day twelve of this period now and I am concerned whether I should stop taking these herbs? ...or is this a good thing? I know I should have went back to the ER like they said but I did schedule an appointment for Friday at the clinic so I have four more days. ...What do u think? I just really dont want to go back on the pill cause I really want to be a Mommy but then again this bleeding is driving me crazy! Please help!
