Xarelto- experiencing heavy periods and have polycystic ovarian syndrome
I'm a 46 year old female, diagnosed with lower leg dvt a week ago after having thyroidectomy surgery the previous week. The ER put me on 15 mg Xarelto twice a day. I have been on seasonique birth control for 10 years, but took myself off after the blood clot scare last week. I figured I wouldn't get a period for a long time since I have polycystic ovarian syndrome and my periods used to be so irregular, going months without one before I went on the pill. But only after a week of stopping the Seasonique, I got a period this morning, but it's super heavy with big clots. I am assuming the xeralto is causing it, but how long will it last? Will the bleeding be like this every month or will it taper off? I need to be on the Xarelto for at least 6 months the ER doc said. Anyone else have really heavy periods on Xarelto? How long did it last and when should I be worried? I feel like I'm calling doctors with every picking thing and they will dismiss me as a hypochondriac!
