29, I took hormonal birth control for 5 years- stopped taking it because I came out of a long term relationship and I wanted a healthier alternative. Last ultrasound done awhile ago.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
My issue currently is cycles ranging from 40-60 days. This past cycle I had bleeding for 1 day and still have menstrual cramps with no bleeding- 50 day cycle

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having irregular menstrual cycles since coming off hormonal birth control one year ago can most likely be due to your fibroid.

Another possibility is of hormonal changes.

Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in or on the muscular wall of the womb (the myometrium). About 20 percent to 80 percent of women develop fibroids by the time they reach age 50.

Other possible causes can be: stress,being overweight or underweight,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

You need clinical examination,testing for thyroid function and other hormone levels. A pelvic exam is required to see the status of fibroid.

You may be prescribed with hormonal pills & other prescription medications accordingly.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this and it is treatable with medications accordingly,

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your gyne doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you
