I'm 31 years old and a mom to two awesome little boys, I was diagnosed with itp when I was 17 years old. With no treatment my counts are 0-5 I am currently on nplate and I had a splenectomy in 2004
Thank you received: 38
Does any one else bleed out vaginally three years ago was the first time my hemaglobin got down to two they didn't even know how I was walking since this three other times megace usually stops it but this sometimes requires a blood transfusion I'm 27 and want children so bad but it doesn't look promising for me any feedback would be appreciated
I can relate to what you are talking about. I am 48 though. I also had the extremely heavy menstrual bleeding. I was on Provera, which worked for a year or so. I've never heard of megace so I don't know how it compares to Provera. I'm sure your doctor can tell you. At first I was told that I had fibroids, that's what was causing the extereme bleeding. With the 2nd round of bleeding though I didn't have the fibroids anymore. I had to have a hysterectomy to solve the situation. I'm praying for you that that isn't the case.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
