    I am having heavy periods lasting longer than 8 days? Anyone know the reason and the cure? I've been to gynaecologist who suggested pelvic scan but just looking for experiences from others.

    Fibroids can cause prolonged and heavy bleeding. It is best to get an ultrasound to see what’s going on.

    There is a possibility of fibroids.

    A pelvic scan can reveal the exact cause of this problem if it is recurrent for you. So, go ahead and take the test.

    I think this needs urgent attention...but why does it take 2 months to get the appointment?
    Can you try doing some online consultation with gynaecologist once, if you have all your reports ready...
