About heavy periods, painful ones and endometriosis?
I can tell you this, I used to take AT LEAST 20 Advil a day and/or 10 Aleve, sometimes a combination fo the two & my periods were just as heavy as ever. It did absolutely nothing to reduce any pain. Taking 1 or 2 of these a day is a MUCH better alternative than that, PLUS you have reduced flow which none of those... Asked by Anabel Shorkey 1 year ago.

This isn't really a question, but a comment that might help those of you who have these problems. Ask your doctor about Meclomen - it's a medicine (non habit forming) that is designed to reduce the flow of your period. Reduced flow cuts down on the pain and other endometriosis symptoms. I went from having heavy periods to having less flow in all 7 days than I would in a few hours. It's amazing and it could possibly keep you from having to take a BCP or narcotics. Good luck all! Answered by Lorrie Pingel 1 year ago.

I can tell you this, I used to take AT LEAST 20 Advil a day and/or 10 Aleve, sometimes a combination fo the two & my periods were just as heavy as ever. It did absolutely nothing to reduce any pain. Taking 1 or 2 of these a day is a MUCH better alternative than that, PLUS you have reduced flow which none of those other drugs can even claim to do. Stop trying to scare people - you have no clue what it's like to deal with debilitating pain every day of your life. This is something that can help without addicting side effects. No drug comes without risks, but I can tell you I've had no side effects from this drug and I think women should know there are options to things like BCP's, narcotics and hysterectomies. Answered by Keri Guetierrez 1 year ago.

Meclomen (meclofenamate sodium) is simply a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, much along the lines of Advil, Motrin, Midol PMS, Aleve, Naprosyn, Naprelan, Anaprox and Ponstel (which has been shown specifically to reduce bleeding by 30%-50%). All NSAIDs block prostaglandins (which are substances that increase uterine contractions) and have other properties that act against the inflammatory factors responsible for heavy menstrual bleeding. Patients should be aware that long-term use of any NSAID can increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers. In fact, one 2001 study of women with iron deficiency anemia reported that overuse of NSAIDs for menstrual disorders contributed to the anemia. Also, no NSAIDs have been studied *specifically* for Endometriosis; the studies were on dysmenorrhea and heavy menstrual bleeding. This is not to say NSAIDs are not viable alternatives to OCs and narcotics or that they don't work; many women do find temporary relief with NSAID usage. Just be aware of what any drug was developed for, studied for usage in, what side effects it might have, and what the long-term risks could be. Answered by Ciera Baldomero 1 year ago.

hi Mysti, I honestly have had to have a balloon ablation as a results of my heavy and intensely abnormal menstrual sessions, I had an ultrasound performed and that's whilst they chanced on the 4 fibroid tumours in my uterus. I had the ablation / biopsy a million week in the past, i believe i'm in allot of discomfort nevertheless, however the bleeding has stopped, thank god...... in the previous the ablation, I had my cycle for 38 days!!!!! take that. :( Answered by Felton Cotty 1 year ago.

i started my cycles when I was 9. I've had problems with it ever since. Blood clots, bleeding for 7-9 days, cramps,headaches, mood swings, everything. I was told repeatedly it was normal that some people have problematic cycles. At 15 I started birth control pills. i still had problems with clots and heavy cycles, and cramps. i was on the pill for 6 years then went off them. At 24 I started bleeding and wouldn't stop for 2 months. i went to the gyno, a different one than before, and was told I had PCOS (poly-cyctic ovary syndrome) and the best treatment is birth control pills, since then I have changed my pills about every 1-2 years due to the fact that I break through and start bleeding without stopping. Now I'm almost 34 and I went to the doctor a week ago because of itching. I had tried an OTC yeast treatment the week before but it didn't help. the doctor said that she wasn't sure if the sample she took would tell her anything because I was still bleeding. what should I do? Answered by Lala Wallbank 1 year ago.

Breakthrough bleeding is sometimes caused by thyroid problems, you might want to look into that. You can also ask your doctor about Meclomen - it's an NSAID like Aleve or Advil, but it slows your periods to a near stop. LOVE IT! I have PCOS, endometriosis and ovarian cysts. There's a surgery that might be helpful for your PCOS symptoms called ovarian drilling. Not much out there on the internet about it, but basically they drill tiny little holes in your ovaries so you can ovulate. It relieves a LOT of your symptoms. I haven't had a period since my surgery so I can't tell you if the bleeding has changed, I don't cycle monthly because of the endo mainly. My doc did this surgery & within 6 weeks my hair growth had slowed down by 10 to 15 times, the pain in my ovaries was gone, I also saw a difference in my mood levels. It's a laparoscopic procedure, minimally invasive, they can get a good look at your insides that way - possibly catch something they've missed before. It's the best thing I've ever done!

Hi THere Here is some info and remedies to help with your condition. Causes Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress. Note: Pharmaceutical Drugs: The following drugs can all cause and exacerbate various gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease: Accutane, Alka-Seltzer Antacid and Alka-Seltzer Pain Reliever, Anturane, Genuine Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Plus Aspirin, Bayer Regular Strength Enteric Aspirin, Bufferin Analgesic Tablets and Caplets, Ceptaz, Clinoril, Cuprimine, Ecotrin Enteric Coated Aspirin, Feldene, Ilosone, Lamprene, Leukine for IV Infusion, Lopid, Marplan, Meclomen, Novantrone, Paraplatin, Piroxicam, Prokine I.V. Infusion, Retrovir, Rynatuss, Supprelin Injection, Suprax, Ticlid, Tolectin, Toradol IM Injection, Trecator-SC, Trilisate, and Voltaren. Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease 1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens. 2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish. 3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day. Gallon a day if you can. 4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process. 5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended. 6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises. 7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies. 8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen. 9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice. 10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning. 11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work. 12. Learn about colon and liver cleansing to start ridding of the toxins in the blood. This is the key to long term health (for any disease). Best of health to you Answered by Pasty Munzell 1 year ago.

Here is my problem. I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I am having problems getting it under control. I have read everything I can find online about the disease, and have taken every medication prescribed by my doctor, exactly as ordered. I eat constantly, and drink 3 ensures a day. Everything I eat is chosen for its nutritional value. I am still losing weight. I have lost approximately 40 lbs since the beginning of the flare up, and continue to lose between 2-3 lbs per week. I have now found that I have lost an additional 2 1/2 lbs over the past 24 hours. I cannot increase my sugar intake due to hypoglycemia. I am fortunate that I could afford the weight loss, but it is now becoming a concern. Does anyone familiar with this disease have ANY suggestions about how to get the disease under control, or how to stop the weight loss?

Hi Zoey Here is some info and remedies to help with your condition. Causes Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress. Note: Pharmaceutical Drugs: The following drugs can all cause and exacerbate various gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease: Accutane, Alka-Seltzer Antacid and Alka-Seltzer Pain Reliever, Anturane, Genuine Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Plus Aspirin, Bayer Regular Strength Enteric Aspirin, Bufferin Analgesic Tablets and Caplets, Ceptaz, Clinoril, Cuprimine, Ecotrin Enteric Coated Aspirin, Feldene, Ilosone, Lamprene, Leukine for IV Infusion, Lopid, Marplan, Meclomen, Novantrone, Paraplatin, Piroxicam, Prokine I.V. Infusion, Retrovir, Rynatuss, Supprelin Injection, Suprax, Ticlid, Tolectin, Toradol IM Injection, Trecator-SC, Trilisate, and Voltaren. Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease 1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens. 2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish. 3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day. Gallon a day if you can. 4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process. 5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended. 6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises. 7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies. 8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen. 9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice. 10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning. 11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work. 12. Learn about colon and liver cleansing to start ridding of the toxins in the blood.

A friend of mine suffers from crohns. Sorry to hear about your stress. I would get the scan and tests done. . .just to be sure all is ok. That is maybe why your doctor wants you to these tests again. My friend has days where she is fine and then she can have her crohns act up. I hope all is well with u and things become less stressful.

About heavy periods, painful ones and endometriosis?
I can tell you this, I used to take AT LEAST 20 Advil a day and/or 10 Aleve, sometimes a combination fo the two & my periods were just as heavy as ever. It did absolutely nothing to reduce any pain.

This isn't really a question, but a comment that might help those of you who have these problems. Ask your doctor about Meclomen - it's a medicine (non habit forming) that is designed to reduce the flow of your period. Reduced flow cuts down on the pain and other endometriosis symptoms. I went from having heavy periods to having less flow in all 7 days than I would in a few hours. It's amazing and it could possibly keep you from having to take a BCP or narcotics. Good luck all!

I can tell you this, I used to take AT LEAST 20 Advil a day and/or 10 Aleve, sometimes a combination fo the two & my periods were just as heavy as ever. It did absolutely nothing to reduce any pain. Taking 1 or 2 of these a day is a MUCH better alternative than that, PLUS you have reduced flow which none of those other drugs can even claim to do. Stop trying to scare people - you have no clue what it's like to deal with debilitating pain every day of your life. This is something that can help without addicting side effects. No drug comes without risks, but I can tell you I've had no side effects from this drug and I think women should know there are options to things like BCP's, narcotics and hysterectomies. Answered by Nickie Abuel 1 year ago.

Meclomen (meclofenamate sodium) is simply a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, much along the lines of Advil, Motrin, Midol PMS, Aleve, Naprosyn, Naprelan, Anaprox and Ponstel (which has been shown specifically to reduce bleeding by 30%-50%). All NSAIDs block prostaglandins (which are substances that increase uterine contractions) and have other properties that act against the inflammatory factors responsible for heavy menstrual bleeding. Patients should be aware that long-term use of any NSAID can increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers. In fact, one 2001 study of women with iron deficiency anemia reported that overuse of NSAIDs for menstrual disorders contributed to the anemia. Also, no NSAIDs have been studied *specifically* for Endometriosis; the studies were on dysmenorrhea and heavy menstrual bleeding. This is not to say NSAIDs are not viable alternatives to OCs and narcotics or that they don't work; many women do find temporary relief with NSAID usage. Just be aware of what any drug was developed for, studied for usage in, what side effects it might have, and what the long-term risks could be. Answered by Leah Glockner 1 year ago.

i started my cycles when I was 9. I've had problems with it ever since. Blood clots, bleeding for 7-9 days, cramps,headaches, mood swings, everything. I was told repeatedly it was normal that some people have problematic cycles. At 15 I started birth control pills. i still had problems with clots and heavy cycles, and cramps. i was on the pill for 6 years then went off them. At 24 I started bleeding and wouldn't stop for 2 months. i went to the gyno, a different one than before, and was told I had PCOS (poly-cyctic ovary syndrome) and the best treatment is birth control pills, since then I have changed my pills about every 1-2 years due to the fact that I break through and start bleeding without stopping. Now I'm almost 34 and I went to the doctor a week ago because of itching. I had tried an OTC yeast treatment the week before but it didn't help. the doctor said that she wasn't sure if the sample she took would tell her anything because I was still bleeding. what should I do? Answered by Kasha Viste 1 year ago.

Breakthrough bleeding is sometimes caused by thyroid problems, you might want to look into that. You can also ask your doctor about Meclomen - it's an NSAID like Aleve or Advil, but it slows your periods to a near stop. LOVE IT! I have PCOS, endometriosis and ovarian cysts. There's a surgery that might be helpful for your PCOS symptoms called ovarian drilling. Not much out there on the internet about it, but basically they drill tiny little holes in your ovaries so you can ovulate. It relieves a LOT of your symptoms. I haven't had a period since my surgery so I can't tell you if the bleeding has changed, I don't cycle monthly because of the endo mainly. My doc did this surgery & within 6 weeks my hair growth had slowed down by 10 to 15 times, the pain in my ovaries was gone, I also saw a difference in my mood levels. It's a laparoscopic procedure, minimally invasive, they can get a good look at your insides that way - possibly catch something they've missed before. It's the best thing I've ever done!

Here is my problem. I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I am having problems getting it under control. I have read everything I can find online about the disease, and have taken every medication prescribed by my doctor, exactly as ordered. I eat constantly, and drink 3 ensures a day. Everything I eat is chosen for its nutritional value. I am still losing weight. I have lost approximately 40 lbs since the beginning of the flare up, and continue to lose between 2-3 lbs per week. I have now found that I have lost an additional 2 1/2 lbs over the past 24 hours. I cannot increase my sugar intake due to hypoglycemia. I am fortunate that I could afford the weight loss, but it is now becoming a concern. Does anyone familiar with this disease have ANY suggestions about how to get the disease under control, or how to stop the weight loss?

ok so im 14 years old,and i was just diagnosed with crohn's. im taking medicine like the doctor asked me to. every now and then i have pains,so my doctor gave me hyoscyamine sulfate tablets if i get them again. so far im ok. but not too long ago the doc called and told us(me and my family) that my imflammation wasnt going down,! Like what the hell?! Im taking prednisone and pentasa,and everything that he has given me! Then he tells us he thinks i have TB or turbuculosis(however you spell it) I might need another CT scan and some more blood tests. Ok,is this normal ?! I feel better than i did weeks ago. This is sooo confusing. People say that crohns patients seem to live a normal life. I just want my life back,you know? Now my doctor thinks this and that. Its so stressful! What should i do ?? I feel like i cant trust my doctor. Answered by Rudy Mccartney 1 year ago.

Hi Zoey Here is some info and remedies to help with your condition. Causes Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress. Note: Pharmaceutical Drugs: The following drugs can all cause and exacerbate various gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease: Accutane, Alka-Seltzer Antacid and Alka-Seltzer Pain Reliever, Anturane, Genuine Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Plus Aspirin, Bayer Regular Strength Enteric Aspirin, Bufferin Analgesic Tablets and Caplets, Ceptaz, Clinoril, Cuprimine, Ecotrin Enteric Coated Aspirin, Feldene, Ilosone, Lamprene, Leukine for IV Infusion, Lopid, Marplan, Meclomen, Novantrone, Paraplatin, Piroxicam, Prokine I.V. Infusion, Retrovir, Rynatuss, Supprelin Injection, Suprax, Ticlid, Tolectin, Toradol IM Injection, Trecator-SC, Trilisate, and Voltaren. Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease 1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens. 2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish. 3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day. Gallon a day if you can. 4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process. 5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended. 6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises. 7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies. 8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen. 9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice. 10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning. 11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work. 12. Learn about colon and liver cleansing to start ridding of the toxins in the blood.

A friend of mine suffers from crohns. Sorry to hear about your stress. I would get the scan and tests done. . .just to be sure all is ok. That is maybe why your doctor wants you to these tests again. My friend has days where she is fine and then she can have her crohns act up. I hope all is well with u and things become less stressful. Stress can't help the crohns either :( Take care :) Answered by Merrilee Hershfield 1 year ago.
