I also cannot tolerate oral iron and will be having 5 hours of iv iron infusions once a month for the next four months. I just had a hysterectomy as I had identical bleeding to you and thought it wasn't heavy but it is heavy enough. Now that I don't have a period--life is great!! (If you still want kids someday, you might want to go on the pill--if not, you can also have an "ablation" I just opted for the hysterectomy due to having a lot of people with cancer in my family and didn't want extra "parts" hangin around that can grow cancer--I also had a polyp on my cervix)

I would seriously work on eliminating your periods. Talk with your gyno. Those of us with iron problems are especially sensitive to blood loss.
Good luck.

Hi Jewelry;)Julie,:wave:
My reason for iron infusion was different, They now have a 8 minute push iron infusion, and it works really well. The infusion I had was 3 hr. was same iron they use in 8 min push, They just completed test and results were great. I was offered chance for study, but would have had to wait the weekend to find out if computer accepted me. I didn't feel I could afford the delay.

Before month was up, the test ended.

The new iron is different than the previous iron they used, less problems. I have call into doctors office for name of iron.

Just thought you might like to know, so you could ask about.

Let us know what happens, I'm fairly new, also.

Be praying, Hugs, DianaRo42;)
