-heavy bleeding since menstruation started at 13, i'm 19 now. my period has always been heavy. so they put me on birth control when i was 15 or so, did fine with the monthly ones to begin with, my period got increasingly heavier with time, switched to yaz, bled way too much, and started jolessa...a 3 month pill (4 periods a year) in august.
-i also have von willebrands disease, a bleeding disorder, and iron-deficiency anemia.
SO. i took my first 3 packs of jolessa and did fine: no breakthrough bleeding, it was wonderful! i began to get very tired and weak, signaling my iron was dropping again. my dr advised me to skip my placebo week so i don't bleed and lose more iron and blood. i started a new pack of jolessa, which in the end, would be 6months with no period. but, starting the first week of the new pack, breakthrough bleeding. i've been bleeding for 2 months, and am extremely frustrated. i got a pelvic ultrasound and it indicated that my uterine lining is very thick. i'm starting a new bc on sunday and will be bleeding for another month or so the gyno said because of the uterine lining shedding. if this bleeding is heavy, i need to get a hysteroscopy at the end of the month.
anyway, i'm just terrified of it being endometriosis or endometrial cancer.
any pointers? i just want to be pain free, not have to worry, and oh...have sex.
