“So I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I won’t have the operation, I worked, maybe they lift themselves up a bit.’ Then 3 or 4 days after a heavy period realizing that it’s not like a usual period… but thinking that a lot has been going on lately, maybe my body has been a little stressed.
“It lasted 10 days between 9 a.m. and noon, I used 10 super sanitary pads. Then it was my sister-in-law, not to be graphic, but I had to show her.
“I said, ‘I don’t think that’s normal’. I called my doctor and he said, “You have to go straight to the hospital”. It was very sad. But it makes me realize that, potentially, there is hope for me for the future.
