    Just thought I would update things on this thread. I got so over it that I went back to see my doctor. I brought up the D&C thing, which he thought was overkill, but I went away and thought about it for a while. Then I got speaking to Divvy one night chatting about things and something unrelated she said twigged with me, I decided I would go back to the doctor and ask to go onto the pill for a short time. I hate the pill, but I hate heavy, irregular periods more. I would sometimes get them a week early etc which was not fun, especially a week early on the day we arrived in Vanuatu, for our January holiday I was so upset as I wanted to swim heaps.

    Anyway, I have been on the pill for one cycle and I am really, really wrapped. Using super tampons (and/or super pads) is overkill... I don't need them anymore. It's been heaps more managable and this cycle also co-incided with the arrival of some bamboo velour pads I ordered so I was able to try them out in case I had probs with my cycle still. So yeah, about to start my second cycle and really happy with the outcome. I just hope when I stop the pill everything will be fixed!!! Don't like taking things like the pill, prefer to be au naturale
