I too, have considered ablation because my periods were so heavy. The first period I took the pills, nothing seemed that different except my cycle seemed longer.. so I didn't think it was working.

This is amazing... My doctor has really been trying to get me to get an ablation or hyst. I just don't want a procedure since my husband had a vas 1 yr ago. This worked super fast and works really well for my heavy periods. Plus, I only take it 2-3 days out of the month. I got a coupon from my doc too which makes it $30/mth w/ my insurance. Glad I didn't cave.

Very effective in reducing the amount of bleeding and clots! It's a lot of pills to take--but for only 5 days. It's a little expensive and if I have to take it until after menopause--I might consider the hysterectomy that my doc recommends for Andomyosis instead of taking this med for the duration. But it DOES work--very little side effects--seem to be a little fatigued (nothing compared ... Show Full Comment
