I am 49 and after not having a period
for four months, I had two weeks of heavy bleeding
, followed by a week off, then a week of extremely heavy bleeding. I consulted with my OB/GYN. My options were to have a D&C or try Prometrium to control my bleeding. (I've taken Prometrium before) The D&C would be temporary and the medication approach could take several weeks or months, so I opted for the ablation.
