Dr. del Junco,
I was experiencing consistent bleeding from the end of January through the beginning of March. During this time, my cramps were getting worse, and I was seeing a lot of clotting. I’m not sure when I was actually getting my period, because I was continuously bleeding. When I went to my OB/GYN, he ordered tests on the tissue in my uterus, and cervix, and also ordered an ultra sound. The results of the internal tests showed nothing unusual, except for the presence of fluid behind the uterus, which the Dr. attributed to a ruptured cyst in my ovary. I was told that pain would go away. The utlra sound showed a fibroid cyst the size of a golf ball, which the Dr. seemed to dsmiss, stating that it wasn’t the primary cause of my symptoms. He also advised me that my body was “out of sync”; my uterus was at one point of my cycle, my ovaries at another, etc. His treatment consisted of increasing the hormonal dosage in my BCP with no sugar pills, so I would go three months without my period. So, it’s been nearly a month now, I’m still bleeding with clots, and having lower abdominal pain with frequent sharp cramps. I’ve called his office and was told I need to wait the three months for the treatment to kick in, and there is no option for pain relief, which has kept me up night after night. Any suggestions?
