In 2002, I was diagnosed with menorrhagia. A pelvic ultrasound revealed that my endometrium was excessively thick; this produced severely heavy menstrual periods. Consequently, I had an endometrial ablation.
I’m currently experiencing the very same difficulties. A recent pelvic ultrasound revealed that my endometrium is again excessively thick. Since I honestly don’t know when my menstrual periods will eventually cease, I’m seriously considering having another endometrial ablation.
I’m feeling totally depleted by having excessively heavy menstrual periods. I have been taking iron supplements, since I have developed iron-deficiency anemia.
An additional, treatable source of profound fatigue is just unacceptable. I already struggle with incapacitating fatigue, due to my diagnoses of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and relapsing-remitting MS. I really don’t feel like tolerating my menorrhagia any longer, even though I anticipate that my peri-menopausal status will soon end.
