I have been a diabetic for many years, i have three children and have been on the pill for most of the time in between. My youngest is now 6 and ever since i had her my periods have been a nightmare. I had my tubes tied shortly after my daughter was born and after that my periods became very frequent and very heavy. I then became anemic. A year and 1/2 ago i had an ablasion which stopped the bleeding and the anemia but now i have a new problem. I can not control my diabetes well. My insulin requirement are very different at different times of the month and i have no idea where i am in my cycle. Does anyone else have to change their insulin requirement several times a month based on your menstrual cycle??
