Excessive Mentruation from Menorrhagia
My 13 year old daughter began menstrating at 11 and one year later she nearly died from menstrual hemorrage diagnosed as “Menorrhagia”. Now almost a year later she has been on Depoprovera injections because her menorrhagia is considered rare in its severity and could be fatal. She suffers constant pain from her uterus trying to menstrate and it is causing daily cramping. My secondary fear is she will eventually have to have a partial hysterectomy before she is 16. Has anyone had this experience with a young child? I am concerned my daughter is not receiving adequate care and my daughters HMO is also her insurance company. I worry I am not getting the care she needs. She had 4 blood transfussions when this occured and had a hemoglobin of 4 when she fell ill. This can never happen again as a 4 could have been her end. The other issue is her hormones are all over the place and she seems to suffer from PMS daily. This started when she began puberty and has only gotten worse. The doctors assured me once we got her hormones under control, she would feel better emotionally. If you have any suggestions or experiences, please respond.
