This is not unusual, and taking the pills will help, but I would also check a thyroid blood test called TSH, and also check for a Polyp.
I hope this helps.
If the thyroid is normal then this is okay. An ultrasound does not necessarily show a polyp - but if the inside of the uterus is not 'thick' then very unlikely to be a polyp.So, this sounds good.
Does an ultrasound show if the inside of my uterus is thick? I was told I have an enlarged uterus, for how long, we don't know because I had not been to a gyno since my daughter was born, she is over 3 but the dr said that's why she sent me for a ultrasound, but that there was no concern about the enlarged uterus, showed no fibroids, so this can be normal change, even though this is unlike a norm for me? i WAS ONLY ON THE AYGESTIN FOR 10 DAYS AND it worked great and have been fine, dr had said that we could always talk about birth control to regulate.
Could this be fine to bleed bright red, very thin blood every month if i decide not to do birth control? I welcome medicine, I also like to be as natural as possible :)
IF the ultrasound is less then 1cm - then most likely normal.If you have an enlarged uterus you might have fibroids or adenomyosis.
Can this be okay to bleed very bright red thin blood every month? can this be normal even though it has never been this bright and thin before?
YES, this can be normal - just because it is different for you this time, it does not mean is is bad. And, if you look at my previous answers I have given you all the reasons for something that can possibly cause a change too if there happens to be a change.
I would be happy to explain in detail how you go about checking for any specific abnormality.
To check for a Polyp you either do a Hysteroscopy - a camera in the uterus, or a SIS - Saline Infusion Sonohysterography - essentially an ultrasound with a ballon in the uterus (on a catheter) - if there is a polyp then the polyp should be removed and usually done via a D&C or resectoscope when doing a hysteroscope.
And, then other reasons for bright bleeding do include changes to your hormones - but this is not necessarily bad - this is quite normal infact.And, sometimes we do see infections with 'lesions' to the vagina and cervix that can cause.
And, doing a D&C can also check your uterine lining for any abnormalities such as hyperplasia.
Thank you for your questions.
