Peace, Do you or anyone you know suffer from Menorraghia-- Heavy Bleeding? I am wondering because it's the closest medical diagnosis for what I go through, but it is not accurate. For example, Heavy Bleeding does not do justice to the length of time I generally bleed: 6 months so far (4months straight, and 2 months straight... just went off) out of this year. (not uncommon) Nor does it do justice to the amount I bleed each of those days. Do you know any options besides birth control or hysterectmy? If you endure this does it run in the family? During my last bout, I constantly ate ice and the bleeding slowed down dramatically, even the relative length of time. I know that ice generally means iron deficiency but I have taken iron pills before and they do not help, leading me to believe that the ice and iron deficiency correlation is not correct. Anyway, I'm looking for ideas.
