If you are interested in Novasure, it may be worth driving a distance. It was very brief, I was back home in no time, although I did need to make sure dh drove me. I say that, and I'll probably find you are on a remote island somewhere where it really is not an option of any sort, lol.
It isn't so much the drive, but the Dr's who do this procedure, do not accept my insurance.
Right now, my periods are not a bother to me. But are a bother to my iron levels. Of course, that is what the numbers tell me anyways...lol.
But I feel fine. I do not have the kind of bleeding people are describing here, like not being able to leave the house.
I cannot wear a tampon(even super plus) the first two days unless I want to wear pad with it. And I would be changing that tampon in about 1/2 hour.
I just wear an overnight pad the first two days, and change it every few hours.
But I have always been heavy the first two days. Only in the past year or so it has gotten a little heavier, and come closer together. Every 23 days now instead of every 28-30.
If I get to the point of not having a life, then this will be something I will discuss with my Dr. I am grateful for all the responses.
