I’ve been experiencing a nonstop period for several months, is it endometriosis or my fibroids?
21, Female, only medications are headache medication, over the counter, etc. I’ve been experiencing a nonstop period for several months. I do have a daughter, but she’s 9 months. I talked to my OB/GYN and he said it could be where my body is still pushing out all the held periods during my pregnancy, but I don’t think it’s that considering she’s 9 months already. I have an extreme loss of appetite, as well as when I was pregnant. I can go hours without a meal, and when I do get hungry, I either eat very little or a lot.
I’m just looking for answers as to what it could be. I’ve done research and it sounds like I have endometriosis, or it could be my fibroids. I would just like a medical professional’s opinion as to what’s wrong with me.
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Both of the disorders have almost same symptoms but myofibroma is more suspectible according to your history of only pregnancy and bleeding for a long period ..normally after pregnancy the estrogen level should lower on its own and gradually settles but if there is myofibroma or extended estrogen treatments this may cause bleeding to continue and causes anaemia..
I recommend a CBC .US ..and MRI and seeing a gynaecologist for differential diagnosis
