Avatar f tn Hello, Excessive amount or duration of menstrual flow, at more or less regular intervals is called menorrhagia.Sometimes it is associated with polymenorrhea(Frequent flow, cycles of ≤21 days)Causes of menorrhagia are Hypothyroidism, Endometrial proliferation or hyperplasia like ovarian tumor and polycystic ovarian disease,endometrial polyps and neoplasia,endometriosis,fibroids and uterine sarcomas.

Avatar n tn Typically I am a healthy (overwieght) 41 year old with children - no problems with pregnancy/childbirth. This period is very heavy where sometimes the flow just gushes and includes a very large (ping pong ball sized) clot or more than one. This even woke me up last night and I barely made it to the bathroom on time. Past periods have been heavy and even sometimes painful but never with such large clots or unpredictable flow.
Avatar n tn Heavy first period after miscarriage. July 17, 2008 You have all made a valuable contribution to me. I miscarried at approximately 3 and a half months and 5 weeks after i am having my first period. It was accompanied by a lot of cramps, heavy bleeding and clots. I thought i had miscarried again. I am on day 4 and the bleeding has lessen. Thank Jesus for this. I had gotten a bit worried that we had unprotected sex so soon after my miscarriage.
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. My period came a day early and was pretty heavy for the first two days, but after that all I had was light brown spotting. Could this be a sign of pregnancy? I've been sexually active and have always used a condom. Also I've been having uti symptoms like blood in my urine, burning, having the urge to go but nothing. Aching pains just around my urethra/opening...on and off for the past month. Any ideas? My periods have always been regular...same time...same length.
1855970 tn?1325827213 I take the 10mg pill on days 16-25 each month and my period begins 3-5 days after the last pill. It has been working just fine from Jan-July. My period usually will last 3-7 days. Last month (august) my period was very light and lasted about 4 days. This month, my period started very early (I had 3 of the pills to take yet). The first 3 days consisted of a thick brownish discharge (I'd compare it to steak sauce).
Avatar f tn Also, the same day I started my period I took the morning after pill right before, not knowing my period would start the same day. Is this prolonged heavy bleeding due to the morning after pill or could it be because I didn't have a period for so long or are there any other possible reasons? I'm really worried something might be wrong and I plan to go to the Dr but I wanted to get some other opinions to see if anyone knew what it possibly may be first.
Avatar m tn Cause if you have that could lead to pregnancy!! If your urine test comes out negative, and you feel pregnant or miss your next period, go and ask your doctor to do a HCG blood test on you.
Avatar n tn We have been trying for 7 years and well still hoping. I got a heavy period last week with severe pain. Clinic told me to take a home pregnancy test anyway. I did so yesterday and it came back positive. Is it possible that I am pregnant??? Best of luck to all trying to conceive. My thoughts and hopes are with you.
Avatar m tn Hello, You seem to be having the symptoms of metrorrhagia(heavy periods). Various factors causing it are endometriosis,ectopic pregnancy,hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia,polyps,use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases,PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus. I would suggest you to consult a gynecologist and get a pelvic examination and swab culture done to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment depends on the confirmation of diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm Abby... I'm 18 & over weight. I don't exactly know if I'm pregnant, but I just feel different... i just want to know how I can tell if I'm pregnant without going to the doctor or taking a test yet... i bled a little after I had sex & I thought it was my period, but I only bled the moment & it stopped. What does that mean? ? Anyway... if you're a bigger girl & are pregnant or were pregnant how did you tell?
Avatar f tn I have not had sex since then. About a week or so after taking the plan B I began to have a period. The period was normal at first, and then became EXTREMELY heavy. It lasted for nearly 3 weeks and by the end was so heavy that I was bleeding through tampons and pants for an entire night (almost like thin blood from a cut, not clotted period blood on these last couple of nights). I have not noticed any changes in my stomach, tender breasts, etc.
Avatar n tn I had a baby 7 months ago and started taking the pill before I had my first period. I am having a very heavy period and its gone into my fourth day, its bright red and seems to have tissue in it and its not my pill free week yet. could there be something wrong?
Avatar n tn This time I didn't even miss my period. I got what I thought was a late period. I was feeling sick and pregnancy symptoms so I checked. Couldn't believe it, I always at least missed one period. I am so far 7 weeks. I found out at 4 weeks. I've been to the Doctor every week since I found out and have had blood tests and ultra sounds. The hcg levels are going up appropriately. Praying for another healthy baby.
Avatar n tn It's possible if it wasn't really your period. Was the bleeding heavy or was it lighter than usual? The only thing you can do is wait and test again.
Avatar f tn Agree with the other post sounds like ur period was just 2 days late but after ur period u can try again. Just don't stress too much over it cause that can mess with ur cycle.
