21 Feb 2014 I'm 43- I wanted to try Lysteda as an alternative to surgery for heavy bleeding due to fibroids. I was to the point where I was literally crying while on the toilet during my period because no human/woman should have these kinds of issues. It was terrible and I'll spare the details! Just believe me when I say I was desperate because I spent most of my time in the bathroom for 2 days. I've taken my 3rd day of Lysteda and I can honestly say it's made a difference. It's reduced the bleeding and clots about 30-40% which is not as good as I would like, but at least I'm not crying on the toilet this month. I do feel better and can also sleep through the night without having to get up several times to release the flood. I'm just writing this for anyone who may be going through the same issues. This drug is not meant to be taken with birth control due to the interactions and clot causing mechanism. Speak to your doctor and good luck! : )
