One of the symptoms of uterine fibroids is very heavy bleeding. A recent visitor wondered about managing the heavy days:
susie Q: i wondered if folks have any ‘tricks of the trade’ around managing the bleeding and heavy days. i feel shy to ask about this part of it all, but wonder if folks have ideas i might not have thought about – beyond towel rags, pads etc… anyway, if folks have inventions or ideas….
Another visitor suggested the great idea of a separate thread on this topic. Thanks Pam!
I struggled with the “floods” and huge clots for years. I wore dark clothing, packed a ton of sanitary supplies to leave my house (when I could still leave the house), and ALWAYS had to know the location of a bathroom. I feel for every woman dealing with this. It’s not easy but please realize that you aren’t alone.
If you have thoughts on managing it or just want to talk about heavy menstrual bleeding in general, leave a comment.
Uterine fibroid symptoms (not my idea of fun)
Uterine fibroid tumors and anemia?
Anyone using birth control pills to control bleeding from fibroids?
What makes you mad, sad, or glad when you think about your fibroids?
