Help with abnormal bleeding

I've been abnormally bleeding for months now.
From June til July I bleed one month straight then end of that I'd get my period every week for a few days until the beginning of September I started hemroging
Again now I'm bleeding 3 straight weeks with big clots
I did have a few exams a trasvaginal ultra sound
I read that endometriosis and adenomyosus is seen on ultra sound not when doing a hysterscooy? I'm 49
Always suffered heavy bleeding and painful periods but never like this

Hi Susan,

I don't know what to think I got the procedure done.
I had an incident prior, to being sedated which was
Unpredictable, but the procedure went well there was very little pain or bleeding(I was so relieved) I thought
It would of been very painful. Afterwards I asked twice
About what transpired I was ignored. I also asked
If they knew anything and how things looked I was told the doctor would see me in recovery. He didn't.
Nor did he contact me afterwards. (Thought it was bizarre) after a week he called only to inform me that
There was no tissue/sample for the biopsy. He also asked that I go into the office for a endometrial biopsy
Instead of doing it in the O.R. Again . They don't know if the sample ever made it to the lab or if it was dropped in the O.R. I'm not understanding why it would of taken a whole week for the lab to get back
To the doctor to let him know they didn't have a sample. The good news is there was no tumors or polyps present. Everything looked good. When I mentioned at least that's good news he said he can't
Be sure everything's normal. So my question is what do you think and about what happened and
After a DandC is their enough tissue to scrape to see if other conditions are present such as endometrial hyperplasia? also how long until a new lining builds up and another period happens?

Hi Susan,
Just wanted to give you an update, I had my hysterscopy and D &C and I feel much better. I'm
Waiting for the results which I'm expecting to get in a week or so. It wasn't painful and there wasn't much bleeding-just spotting a relief from what I've been through and a life of heavy periods. Now I'm expecting
To maybe have a delayed period with normal bleeding
For a while I don't know how long a D & C lasts. Thanks again for your advice and support.

Thanks for all your advise and support. I will decide
In a week or so if I'm going to go through with the procedure. I didn't stop my hemroging and long heavy bleeding and when it rarely does stop after about a month I then get weekly periods that last for a few days.(about 3or 4)That's why they probably think it's my harmones. I will let you know what the testing/outcome is. Appreciate your feedback!

Hi Susan,
It sounds complicated and more risky, I wish I could of tolerated the biopsy that was attempted in the office. I've also read that D&C aren't being preformed as much as in the past is that true? Im on the fence about it because if my lining isn't unusually thick why can't just a sample be taken instead of cleaning the whole uterus. I do know that my lining was 7.5. About making too much estrogen I'm overweight and excessive
Fat turns into estrogen that combined with continual
Bleeding leads both gynecologist I've seen come to the conclusion that I make too much of one harmone
Not enough of the other (progesterone). I also have other risk factors for uterine cancer; type II diabetes, have had long heavy periods starting at a young age, (and still this late in life as well) I haven't been on the pill for more than five years. I'm white. On the other hand, I did have to kids and we don't have a history of those cancers in our family. If I do the procedure at the end of the month It won't be general anesthesia, but I'm told I won't know what's going on. I'm nervous because it sounds so invasive and painful.
Thank you.
