only solution i know to reducing a period is a endrometrial ablasion or a hyster - I dont know of any single medication on the market natural or other wise that works (at least for me, tried them all - was 24/7 bleeding since 2004 till may 2008 finally got it all stopped with a hyster and happy its over with)
If you find something that works for you great, hop its a lasting solution (BCs only made my bleeding worse)
I have taken B as well, it also helps with moods. I strongly suggest any women to use vitamin B. As for the heavy periods, I have heard that DNC's do work. Other than that sorry I am unsure.
Sounds like your Dr. isn't very good. Have you tried finding any other alternatives on the internet? I find this to be a great source of information. As you are not alone in this...just have to find something that works for you.
Does anyone have any idea how to help slow a heavy period without taking birth control? Last time I went to the doc she put me on bc, but then took me off last year. I don't want on them again. I've tried making another doc appointment, but either she or I have to reschedule every time. I really want to know if there are any vitamins or herbs that help. She has suggested before that maybe I need a dnc, but I'm unsure about that, so I declined.
