I've had this problem for the last two months. My period would just not stop for a whole 2 months! I did not know what to do so I called my doctor and he wanted to give me an ultrasound to see what was going on with me and possibly get a DNC; but I decided to get a second opinion. I called a local doctors office and spoke with a female nurse because I figured they might know a little more. She told me to take a day off work and make sure I don't have anything to do. To not lift anything heavy and relax with my feet elevated for a long time. Also take 800 mg of ibuprofen every 6-8 hours and it should start to slow down. So luckily I was off the next day which was a Sunday and I did exactly what she said. I watched about 6 movies with my feet elevated in the recliner and relaxed. I took 4 advils since they are only 200 mg every 7 hours and basically did nothing at all during that day. The next day my period was so light I needed only a panty liner and they following day it was completely gone. I was so amazed at how fast it worked. All this time I'v been suffering and thinking I had a serious health problem and all I need to do was relax for a day. So ladies when you have a problem similar to this RELAX, prop your feet, and watch a movie! (don't forget this ibuprofen) It might help you.
