gt;gt; when i was in high school, i would have heavy periods and they were, you know, they were abnormal, but we didn’t know anything that was we didn’t know what to do. So, usually during my periods, I would just put my sweat shirt around my waist and hide it up. Yes, in Mexico, we would, we were going snorkeling.
And i was always behind, i couldn’t keep up, i was weak and tired all the time. They would want to go out. I couldn’t go out. I just go to bed and I got home from the Mexico and my mom just said, let’s go.
To the s and check up on you. And so, I went to the s and they did a blood count on me and I was a 5.9 hemoglobin which is really low and so, I was admitted to the right away with two units of blood. Well, the right after the blood transfusion,.
The put me on birth control and she didn’t know what to do, I was bleeding profusely, and I was in college, even you’re college here in the dorms and I’m bleeding like a whole bed. And so, she put me on birth control, didn’t know what to do, did an ultrasound and they said something about a fibroid,.
So that’s how we found out that there was something else wrong. She didn’t do anything about it, so we seek out UCSF which I went to a fibroid specialist there. The first surgery they removed about it was open surgery and they removed about 20 fibroids and right after surgery there were some still in there.
And i was still in a tremendous amount of bleeding and pain and it did not work and we were thinking they were already talking about another surgery. Well, Lupron worked for about a year and half, and finally, it just stopped working, I was bleeding down to my ankles. I would get up and just start bleeding and call .
And i think he thought i was faking it. Basically, he just like, there’s nothing else we could do for you, I mean, you know, we’re not going to do another surgery. And so, I was at the last, you know, end. I didn’t what to go from there. When my from Stockton said there’s nothing else we can.
Do for you, my mom was adamant about finding someone as I’m starting nursing school in January. And so, she had me go on the computer and we searched Stanford fibroid specialists and I kept seeing this Nezhat, Nezhat, so I just clicked on it and my mom said, she was on her way.
Endometriosis Uterine Fibroids and Estrogen Dominance
Now, when we have a stage called estrogen dominanceestrogen proliferates tissue when it’s dominant. Estrogen within itself is very good. I helps us with our brain tissue, our memory. It helps us to think clearly, prevents foggy brain and all this other stuff. Estrogen in itself is very goodit’s not bad.
But when you have an estrogen dominance situation where the estrogen is very dominant over the progesterone, you’re going to have all these symptoms and you’re going to have a proliferation of tissue. For instance, if a woman comes in with cysts on her ovaries or cysts in her breasts or she has fibroids on the inner uterine lining,.
Or she has endometriosis these are all tissues that are being proliferated. They are increasing because she’s got too much estrogen in her. Thus, we have a lot of increase in the amounts of hysterectomies because women are getting large fibroids.
And they’re bleeding heavy, heavy, heavy, so they have anemia. i went through this myself, personally, in my forties. I had a lot of estrogen dominance but back then we didn’t know exactly what to do. And so, I ended up having a hysterectomy because every time my period came I would bleed very heavily. And this is what’s happening now in people in their forties. Not everybody, but people with estrogen dominance,.
