I have a huge problem, and I don't know anyone else that suffers from this. I am 23 years old and started my periods normal at age 12. Ever since I started, they have always been irregular. I didn't have a mother, so I never talked about it with anyone. THey were always super heavy and there was no telling when they would come or go. They would last from 1 week to 8 months, and be gone from a few days to a few months. There is no schedule at all. All these years and its still so unpredictable. I went to the doctor about 2 years ago because I got landed in the emergency room for low iron naturally. The doctors did extensive tests to see why I was bleeding so long. They did all sorts of blood tests, clot tests, x rays, invasive ultra sounds, specialists. Everything showed that I was perfectly healthy except for the low iron due to loss of blood. My ovaries and lining and blood counts- all was perfect. I'm perfectly healthy. So they tried doing a few hormone therapy birth controls, but even the strongest birth control didn't work- I bled all the way through. So they tried the methods that make you only have 3 periods a year but those still had me bleeding all the way through. The only way they'd stop is if I took 3 birth control pills at one time, which was too dangerous so I coudln't do that more than once. So essentially, they tell me there is no cause and no cure. I dont' know what to do, or if maybe there are some home remedies that could work better. I heard taking aleve, and a few other things. I'm just so lost.
