"Gynae assessment ward1"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Having had a miscarriage in August 2015 and continually bled every day since, despite various treatment and. A Hysteroscopy In Dec, I presented there again today 27th Jan.

I was given a scan and subsequently prescribed Norethisterone.

I asked about alternative treatment and was told there are none.

Having tried tranexamic acid at least twice, various antibiotics, leveste and tranexamic acid combination and Norethisterone previously, I feel I am getting nowhere.

Surely after 6 months of continual bleeding, other options need to be explored. In this time I have become anaemic and deficient in vitamin B12, been unable to work due to prolonged heavy bleeding, unable to have a day or night out and it's affected my confidence and mental health.

Help.
