I have a history of always having long very heavy periods with very bad,big cramps. I'm I was 16-17 (now 26) I had a heavy period for over a month and a half. I was rushed to the hospital because I passed out. I had lost so much blood they didn't know how I was walking around at that time the dr said I had PCOS. I stayed in the hospital for a while and came out. I lived and dealt with the heavy and pain periods until last sept. From may2010- Sept 2010 I had an non stop very heavy period with massive blood cloting. I was sent to an oygbn and put on depo it worked for the first month after that the bleeding and cramping came back wrose within 3 months I had 3 depo needles. I came off of depo because it wasn't working for me and I had becomevery depressed. The oygbn then put me on Seasonale (march 2011) It's been almost 2 months on seasonale and the same problems are happening again lots of bleeding and spotting but mostly painful cramping. The cramping is so bad that I cannot move and i feel sore from the outside. Everytime I do an ultrasound I have no cysts everything is clear. I'm making an appt to see the oygbn again. But my question is has anyone gone thru this, and what was there outcome? I don't feel like brith control is going to help me. I feel like there is another underline problem. What advice would you give as the next step of act? I'm thinking about a scope or maybe even removing an ovary the one side that hurts the most. I'm lost and I really just want to put an end to this.. Please advise any comments/answers are welcome

Hi Kellybee,

I'm so sorry you have to go through this. I think you're doing the right thing by going back to your OB/GYN. Ask lots of questions and have your doctor perform any necessary tests to determine what the problem could be. If you were diagnosed with PCOS then this could be the reason for your irregular bleeding, but if you feel like it may not be the PCOS but something else instead, question your diagnosis-- you have a right to more tests to either confirm your diagnosis or potentially finding the true reason for your painful, heavy, period.

I hope you find an answer and others with similar cases as yours.
