    Maybe try the IUD first? Most people remain period free for the five year placement. Idk, just in case you may change plans in the future & avoid a surgery. Thumbs up from me.

    What's IUD? May I get more information on that?

    IUD stands for Intrauterine Device. This is a device that is placed by a doctor into the uterus. It prevents implantation of a fertilized egg.

    The IUD that quad79 is referring is called Mirena. It contains slow release hormones, and the hormones tend to prevent menstruation from occurring.

    Megha, if you've never seen a gynecologist, it might be a good idea to make an appointment with one. You would get a physical exam, and could discuss all the available options for reducing or stopping menstruation.
