[quote="spike"][quote="vegieburger"]sorry to hear about your probs. I'd be interested to hear how the pill works out for you as I have nearly the same problem, although my period doesn't last so long its just crazily heavy as in cannot leave the house for the worst day or to because nothing will stem the flow.
Have you tried a menstrual cup? There are varoius brands and sizes but some of them can hold twice as much blood as a super plus tampon.
Also, has your doc not suggested the option of a IUD that has hormones which will reduce the flow? or tranexamic acid, again to reduce the flow. Both these have side effects too btu are potential other options.
Do you mean the mooncup? I have used it before, but found that I was too heavy even for that. Plus if you work outdoors like me, gaining access to wash facilities when using the loo can be hard so it's not really practical. I wasn't informed of any other option, was just told to take the pill and go from there.
