I've been experiencing long periods for a while now. I am 51. They last about 3 weeks, taper off like a normal period and then bamm...my new period comes! My periods are like clock work, very regular approx. 28 days or whatever the cycle is suppose to be. So, I've had it for 3 weeks, then the other period comes back to back for sometimes another 3 weeks! My doctor had me go on Aygestin..first take 3 per day for 10 days, 2 per day for 10 days and then 1 per day for 10 days. I did not feel comfortable taking so many, but I did it. My period then stopped for about a week. Then it came on again like clock work, went on for about 3 weeks and now again going on for a week! I started to take the Aygestin again, but this time only taking 2 pills a day for 10 days, then will cut down to 1 pill for 10 days. My doctor suggested a hysterectomy if needed, but no way do i want to do that! I do have fibroid tumors as well. I am taking iron. My homone blood test came out normal. Should I try taking a saliva test? What advice can you give to me...my bleeding is like a normal period, no blood clots...just heavy in the beginning then tapers off.
