Have you talked to your OB/GYN? Now that I can’t take birth control pills ( due to blood clots in my lungs ) my doctor is going to prescribe a non hormonal pill that will cut my flow and period time in half. I will have to get the name for you when I pick up my script.
I dont have an obgyn assigned since pregnancy but yeah let me know! Never heard of non hormonal pill

Did you just ask for a blood specialist or were you referred? Sometimes requesting a specialist is a nightmare through my medical group ugh

I was referred, it was actually my PCP who said that she wasn't equipped to interpret the Iron levels. When I discussed it with the surgeon, he agreed.

After surgery, my periods were crazy heavy flow for a couple of months. I’m talking having to wear tampon and pad and changing it every 45 min. I avoided going out and night time was a nightmare! It has since gone back to a normal flow although it does last longer than it did pre-surgery. Working out helps...it made the flow less heavy although it was the last thing I wanted to do during that time lol
