About a year ago my PCP took me off of my hormonal bc I had been on for over 10 years. It's a long story, and I don't know why she did really and I wasn't in a state to push back.
Anyways it took me 6 months to get my period back after being off the BC.
Once it came back it was very irregular. Bleeding inbetween periods, long periods, etc. The straw that broke the camels back was a period lasting almost an entire month.
I went to my nurse practiconer who suspected PCOS, got blood work, and then sent me to a gynocologist for a vaginal ultrasound and hysteroscopy/biopsy of my uterus.
Well, I went to that yesterday. I am a little frustrated because they haven't given me the results of my blood work. I'm interested to know my hormone levels.
The doctor did the hysteroscope and found my uterus lining is thickened, and there are polyps. He said I should get them removed to ensure they aren't cancerous and also to help with my irregular heavy bleeding.
So I am getting a D&C, and am curious has anyone had this done? What was the recovery like? I'm nervous to say the least. I will be put under, but also pretty nervous to be put under too.
Also- they haven't really explained why my periods are wacky. The doctor said my PCP shouldn't have taken me off the hormonal bc. He advised that I get an IUD at the same time i get the D&C so that my periods can be regulated again and I can go about my business.
However- it doesn't really explain why I need the hormones. Are my hormones just out of wack? Is it PCOS? I plan on obviously discussing this with the Dr. just curious if anyone has had a similiar experience in that regard as well.
