I apologize for the graphic nature of this post.
Ever since I was diagnosed with T1 & hypothyroid, my natural, no birth control periods have been very heavy and painful. I have to change pad in middle of the night and every hour or two during the first three days. About 2-4 times a cycle, I have a clot that soaks an entire pad in itself, or through a tampon, through my jeans, through to the seat I am sitting on. When I look in the toilet, my blood looks almost grainy, like it is full of little dots of clots. I just thought this was because I had diabetes and my blood had more sugar in it. But then I searched it the other day and a lady posted pics (on a general health site) of what it looks like and people freaked out and told her to go to emerg! Lol.
Is this really horrible? Has anyone elae had this? I have told my doc about the heavy bleeding and she put me on bc, which helped. But my bf and I are thinking of trying for a baby and I went off the pill in Dec. And my periods went right back to the way they had been. Thoughts?
