Scared - need prayers please?

Could you PLEASE pray for me? I am feeling a little scared. Sometimes I get these unusual mid cycle bleeding episodes. Yesterday at work I felt something come out of me and ran to the bathroom and saw some bright blood. It stopped for awhile, but last night before I went to bed it happened again. When I woke up four am in the morning I saw more bright blood and lots of clotty stuff. It looked like my period, but I got my period about sixteen days ago so this is something different. It stopped right now, but my mid section feels crampy. I don't think it's my ovaries. I had a chat with someone at work with endometriosis and she told me this can happen if you have fibroids (I was recently diagnosed with three small fibroids and an endometrioma cyst on my right ovary.). I'm just afraid that if this keeps on happening I'm going to have to go to the hospital and they are going to tell me I need a hysterectomy. I just feel very scared about this and cried to Ed about this. We prayed and I began to feel a little better and the bleeding has stopped for now. But seeing bright red blood and clots and it isn't your period, well it is very scary for me!!

Could you PLEASE pray? I've had this happen a few other times but about one week or a little more before I got my period, but it wasn't bright red and clotty like this. And no, I don't think it is a miscarriage or anything like that because I had my period fifteen days ago.

By the way, is this normal if you have endometriosis? Fibroids? I could really need some reassurance and prayers! Thank you so much!

Thank you so much!

Love,
Maria Therese

I think fibroids and endo are separate conditions; you could have either of them or both, it depends on the person. But they are NOT going to tell you that you need a hysterectomy as a result of fibroids. A coworker's sister (around 45-50yo) had so many fibroids that she looked seven months pregnant - she was in maternity clothes. She just didn't want the surgery. And when she finally got herself to the doctor, they didn't even give HER a hysterectomy. You'll be fine. But if it were me, I would see my doctor just to find out what's going on.

Praying for you!

Sorry to hear about the bleeding and the fear. No one will give you a hysterectomy without your consent, so even if they did tell you that you could always get a second option. I've have the mid cycle bleeding too, many, many cycles including the cycle I got pregnant. It's definitely worth getting in touch with your doctor just to see if they find anything. Praying for you.

Prayers for you. BTW, I don't think I have your e-mail address for the invite to my blog. Could you send it to me by e-mail? Thanks. Dr. G

I'm praying for you. I do understand your fear. I had mid-cycle bleeding quite a bit before surgery and a couple times there were clots. My understanding is that sometimes when we ovulate endo can break off the ovary and be expelled from the body... here's hoping that's all it is.
