1: Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:40am INAMPI thought I'd start a new thread to see if there is a corretion between changes in hormoes and bleeds. The following is part of a study between progesterone and blood pressure:
2: Thu Sep 02, 2010 11:58am PattiGBetween the ages of 42 and now 51, I have had 3 bleeds and surgeries, so I have to really wonder if fluctuating hormones play a part in why we bleed??
3: Sat Sep 04, 2010 7:05pm ElizabethAll my problems started after pregnancy. Not sure if it was hormones, increased blood volume, difficult labor, lack of sleep, and/or taking lots of advil after the difficult delivery?? Maybe all of the above...but I think you're right about the possible hormone connection.

Now looking back after the birth of my 1st I probably had a few little bleeds. There were days where I just couldn't get up out of bed open my eyes or do much of anything. I would take a dramamine and eventually snap out of it. I just thought it was new mommy pains. 2 years later I had my bigger bleed/seizure.
