Someone suggested a hormone IUD (Mirena) and although it is fairly painful to insert and you can have continuous spotting for weeks after insertion, the end result is usually period-free 5 years! I certainly haven't had periods since it was put in and although I still get some of the hormonal cycle symptoms, they are a mere fraction of what I used to go through and there is no pain.

I am cursed, too, with a very heavy period, that lasts about 5-6 days on average. I have had Celiac's since 1995. I also get the mood swings, but I don't suffer from the bad cramping anymore. I think this occured, because I just gave birth to my 3rd child in May. I thought I was alone with the agony, but I guess I'm not. Do the hormones or birth control really work? Let me know.

Thanks for your reply. I have heard that hormone pills do work, but they are not an option for me at all. I asked my Rheumatologist if I could try them, because my Sister-in-law is using them and they help with the hot flashes and he said absolutely not. He shot it down quick, fast, and in a hurry like, because he told me it will put me into a severe Lupus Flare. Oh well. If you don't have Lupus, ask your doctor about it.

I have always had horrible periods. I get sick as a dog, migrains, diarhea, vomiting sometimes... Heavy bleeding and cramps... I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts... all have been diagnosed by surgery or mri/ultrasound. I just figured it was my luck, but since we have been reading and learning about celiac disease I have wondered if all my problems are related to it and I am a carrieer...
