Secondary to menorrhagia, I’ve been diagnosed with iron-deficiency anemia. This condition results in feeling exceptionally fatigued, as well as short of breath. As a result, I have been prescribed ferrous sulfate (140 mg. qd.) to treat my anemia.
Back in 2002, I had an endometrial ablation in order to correct my excessively heavy menstrual periods. Menorrhagia results from monthly shedding of an overly thick uterine lining, the endometrium. An endometrial ablation removes a portion of an excessively thick endometrium.
For a period of several years, this was an effective means of reversing my menorrhagia. Unfortunately, my positive results have not lasted indefinitely. Given that I expect to complete perimenopause relatively soon, I’m reluctant to undergo a repeated endometrial ablation.
