if it's really that he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>vy and you've been having it for that <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, i suggest you need to see a doctor. take it seriously. i'm not trying to scare you. heavy bleeding is not normal unless something is wrong. there goes my one penny.
Since mid 2008, this has been happening over and over. I never really know anymore when I will get my period or <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> it will l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st. Though I usuallly get one every three or four weeks, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> sometimes be as an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> as six weeks. and I never have a period that lasts for less than two weeks, though it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> sometimes last up to 24 or so days.
, this I am sure brought on all changes. My question is <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> do I go on before seeing doctor, is this just a mid-age problem or related to fibroids which according to GYN they had actually seemed to shrink between visits. I am against any medical procedure unless absolutly necessary, if this continues and is a "fibroid" related issue, are there any alternative therapies that will shrink these etc.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever, most women go without it for <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s of time. I have had the opposite. I went two years where I only stopped bleeding for about 2-3 weeks total. I went on birth control this spring and it took 4 months to stop it! I am 31 years old and I went through the same symptoms as a teen and birth control fixed it. I had two children and after my second, I had post pardom depression for two years. I am thinking that this change in hormones messed me up again.

I first noticed a very light pink discharge late 10/04 or early 10/5. Then I had brown spotting on 10/6 and again today on 10/7. It is nothing that evenrequires a panty liner but it is evident when I wipe.This is my first cycle TTC and I have 3 older kids and never had implantation bleeding with them so I am trying to find all the information that I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> about this. I am also trying to keep myself from tkaing a HPT.
ihave been taking nurofen plus for a few years now, tomorrow will be my 5th day without any substance at all. i would like to know <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> expect the withdrawal to l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st,this is the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>est i have been off them, this is also my first atemptand i will make sure it is the last, i take ( sorry took) 24-36 tablet in 1 go, and between 50-60 per day. does it make a difference if i took them all at once or over a period of the day, could my body obsorb that amount.
Over the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st year they've been awful! I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> have a week <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>vy period then within 3-4 days it comes again, very heavy for another week! Then I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> go about 5 weeks without one then it suddenly appears again - always heavy &amp; an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> each time! My GP prescribed Tranexamic acid tablets but half the time they don't work, only when I go a few cycles without taking them. They've also become extremely painful, to the point where some days I'm in agony a week or so before my period even arrives!
Thanks for the reply. My gyne is not too concerned, and confirmed it was normal to be irregular and was most likely to be hormone related, but I do have a check up scheduled for Monday. In the meantime, the second period was light and only lasted just over a day.
It is your right to keep calling your doctor's office and telling them <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> severe things are and <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> they are getting worse. Do not minimize your symptoms at all when you talk with them. If you faint or feel chest pain--get someone to drive you to the ER or to your doctor's office. Take care. The anemia was the hardest part for me. You won't believe an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> much easier TX seems when you are no an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er anemic. also, remember that it takes a minimum of 2 weeks for the Procrit to kick in.
