wow, i never thought of that before, i couldn't sleep good the whole time i had the iud in me. and i think my body got use to it, b/c i still wake up sometimes through the night. but i do sleep better now than i did, and i'm not always so tired, use to i would just be exhausted, i've been drinking green tea lately,(i don't know if that has anything to do with me feeling better),i really like it. i too have heavy bleeding, but i've always had a pretty bad period for a couple of days. but it's still a little different now, i'll spot red once, one day and that's it, the next day, a little brown, that's it, then the next day i'll get it, i have to wear a super plus tampon, plus a pad, for about 2 days. so my actual real period doesn't really start until the day after i spot for 2 days. the rasberry leaf tea is a good idea, i'll have to try it thanks heater and i hope things get better for you stimpy.
