Customer Question

I had a full hystectomy in 1991
I have thin skin in my insides and have been bleeding from the upper vault of my vagina , for 18months.
It was just spotting but is now filling three sanitary towels a day every day.
What is the best treatment for thinning internal skin?
What is the best treatment to stop the bleeding? Cauterisations haven't worked.
I have been using VAGIFEM 25 for months, but to no effect.
Please can you help me?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

A gynaecologist is taking care of this. keeps cauterising the bleeding but it doesnt work.

Have had estrogen suppositories Vagifem. dont work

Blood test for thyroid came back normal

Dont know about Adrenal Studies.


Blood tests came back everything ok., only seratonin level very very high.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
TSH must be between .3 and 3 on blood testing.
This is a new normal that most doctors have not caught up with.

You need an estrogen panel to look specifically at hormones, and hormone threapy adjusted to these findings is reasonsable for right now , short term.

I would suggest that you seen an endocrinologist for this assessment as clearly it has not been done correctly at this point.
