what was the reason for the test?
when you get back online...
let me know why you had the test done, how heavy the bleeding was, what the findings were and what your doctor told you.
so the uterine lining was normal and there was no polyps?
where are you in your cycle now?
so basically the saline used for the test can distend the uterus and cause cramping.
in a woman with adenomyosis this may cause pain, cramping and discomfort similar to that experienced during the menstrual cycle.
the pain and cramping typically only lasts 24-48 hours.
now, for the bleeding...the aygestin should really help control it.
depending on how heavy the bleeding is, it might be more effective to have a 5-7 day period and then start the aygestin again.
that would be if it was mild to moderate flow.
if it is heavy - like a pad an hour or heavier..that would require calling your doctor for medication that also has estrogen in it...or perhaps even a D&C.
motrin usually works best for the cramping and pain you are experiencing.
occasionally one might require pain medication for a few days.
are you currently taking the aygestin?
have you taken any motrin?
if the aygestin and motrin isn't helping you need to call your doctor.
depending on the severity of the bleeding he may recommend you go to the ER.
I would certainly give him a call as he knows you and performed the test.
how heavy is the bleeding
how much aygestin are you taking
how heavy is the bleeding...in pads per hour
you can take up to 15mg of aygestin daily
so you might try half of another pill to see if that helps
you can try the 15mg of aygestin daily to see if that quites the bleeding.
motrin 800 every 8 hours if typically very effective for this type of pain.
if you start bleeding to the point where you are soaking a pad an hour...go to the ER.
in the meantime, continue to attempt to contact your doctor.
