A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Do any of you have problems with your periods? I get mine every 21- 24 days lasting 5 days. It wipes me out every time. Fatigue, headache, all over body pain.

I also have had blood clots so my options are limited on controlling them

Went to my gyn and she gave me the following options:

Mini pill
Depo Shot

Anybody had any of these help. I really want to stop my periods all together. I'm 34 and done having kids.

Every chance I have I share this to anyone having problems with their Period!! My Daughter lost Her Life because of Ovarian Cancer!! She had problems Bleeding too often,Pain ,Bloating and feeling full after only a few bites yet She was overweight ! Her Dr. never took Her serious, I convinced Her to go to another Dr. who suspected cancer and suggested a surgery so went to Surgeon who didHer surgery after We insisted!! Dr. found Huge tumor and cancer had spread to organs! With lots of treatments She lived 3 yr/7 mo . Leaving behind 2 small little boys and a Husband! If You have Problems seek another Dr, and another!!!!! There are tests they can order and have surgery to see problem !!

You may be histamine intolerant. Im not sure what you are able to take, but Benadryl seriously helped the contraction like cramps I get and helps headaches when ibuprofen and Tylenol dont work.
