I am 47 years old and over the last 2 years, my periods have become more and more intense! The heavy flow is unreal, the blood clots that come with it, the pain is almost unbearable, and most importantly, my mental/emotional state! I feel like I am going crazy once a month! My poor husband cant take much more! I am a mess! My doctor sent me for tests including a test for pre-menopausal but as of yet nothing seems to be wrong medically. I have tried off the shelf meds such as midol and prescription meds for PMS and anxiety, but nothing seems to help.
