Medical Doctor Q&A's
Name: Janet

Question:
Hi. I am 49 and started having flooding periods 2 years ago for 3 months. After that things seemed to straighten out, then came constant spotting, then back to flooding. The last episode sent me to the ER because of severe back pain which I never had before. I had some tests, sonograms, bloodwork, every thing seemed okay. My gynecologist scheduled a D & C Jan 3rd with hysteroscopy. Found no polyps, fibroids, and lining came back normal. Question: this is day 13 since the D & C and I am still bleeding like a regular period and having cramps and still some labor like back pain. No fever. Is this normal? Second Question: where do I go from here? Prometrium or balloon ablation? I am so confused. I just need this to end. Tired of my life being ruled by heavy flooding periods.

Answer:
My advice at this point is to try Prometrium 400mgm daily until the bleeding stops and then cycle it every 2 weeks for several months. If the bleeding or spotting continues despite this, then an ablation procedure would be the best treatment.
