Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

ok understood. Are you under a lot of stress at the minute?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
What you mean stress
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Ever since I started my periods it’s been like that 3/4 years
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

I see. The reason I ask is that being under stress can certainly affect periods but I didn't realize you meant it had gone on so long. In that case I would ask your GP to check you for anaemia with a blood test and they should talk to you about options to help reduce the volume of blood lost in your period. This can be in the form of some medication that shortens periods (like norethisterone) or they can talk to you about starting a contraceptive pill which will also do the same.

No
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I want to be referred to a specialist
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

You can also ask your GP to refer you to see a specialist if needed, they will usually do the first tests which I mentioned above as well as an ultrasound first and then they will refer you.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I had a ultrasound arleady
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

and what did it show

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I need to be referred to gyconligist
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
gynecologist
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

Ok then I think you should ask your GP to refer you given you've had the right tests so that you can see the gynaecologist.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Please speak to my doctor and let them know
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
But how can you help me with my cough and cold
Expert:  Shahid Karim replied 9 days ago.

For the cough and cold take some phenylephrine which you can buy from any pharmacy as that will help and take lots of fluids. Otherwise if you just speak to your GP they'll be able to refer you. We can't speak to them I'm afraid.
