Heavy period symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period symptoms


Avatar f tn The last few months my period has been so heavy I end up having to change tampons every 2 to 3 hours. Now I'm back to pads and soaking them so fast it is becoming frustrating. Anything suggesting would be great.
Avatar m tn my g/f has also benn complaining of having a very heavy period and im wondering now if that would be a symptom of an std, please and thanks for info
Avatar f tn right now though im on my period, the first 2 days were really light with hardly any cramps (didnt need to take tylenol or anything) and now its the 3rd day and its really heavy (well, heavy for me, so heavier than it normally is even the first day or two) but i still have no cramps... is it normal that its heavier on the 3rd day? and is it normal that i usually have cramps but this time i hardly feel them even though my period is heavier?
Avatar n tn m schedule to have hysterescophy and my pap results is ready on Friday. I'm preoccupied too. I know it is normal to have heavy period. But when it last for 18 days fix an appointment with your Gyne. Don't worry you'll be fine. Ciao!
Avatar n tn I need to change every 2-3 hours with my panties being full of blood. My last period has also been 5 days late. All of this is very strange as my period has always been normal. For the past two weeks i have had neusea for no reason and picked up 5kg in 3 months. That was just as big of a shocker. I have been trying to pick up weight for most of my life and never succeeded. Any ideas?
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.
Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old female and for the past 4 months i've had an extremely heavy period. i've always had a pretty regular and moderate period. it was heavy on the first and last day but light in the middle. but lately it has not been that way. i did gain 10 lbs in approx 6 months and and i've had some minor changes in my lifestyle but other than weight gain, nothing else. my period has become heavier and have more clotts than ever b4. is this something i should be concerned about?
Avatar f tn the bleeding was kind of heavy. but i'm not due for my period for 4-5 more days. could this be implantation bleeding? i haven't had any pregnancy symptoms other than mild nausea and fatigue. i also took a pregnancy test the night before i got the bleeding/cramps and it was negative. is there a chance i could still be pregnant?
Avatar n tn Hello, Your symptoms are suggestive of menometrorrhagia. 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. You should get it evaluated from a gynecologist and get it evaluated.
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 f tn I'm so concered about having PID. But I do feel fine.. Just worried about period thats so heavy. This is the first period I've had in months...
Avatar n tn I wasn't aware of the break until after I pulled out. This happened about 3 months ago. About 8 days later later I experienced heavy symptoms of ARS. Fever, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, extreme fatigue, lack of appetite, dry cough, extremely dry mouth, etc etc. At the time I just assumed it was a nasty flu. The symptoms persisted for approximately 10 days-2weeks.
Avatar f tn slight headache all day but heavy time of period. Kids started school today so off a bit, emothional this am after dropping them off.
12182312 tn?1427687556 For as long as I remember, I've always had heavy periods. Along with tons of symptoms. I've noticed, as the years go on, my periods become heavier. And I have new symptoms. I will list them all at the end of this message. There are three symptoms in particular that concern me and I want to know if anyone else gets them also. One, I have a heart arrythmia. But I notice the week before I'm due, it really acts up the most.
520191 tn?1355639002 i was about 1 and 1/2 months pregnant when i thought i had miscarried because i bleed really heavy. i have never bleed that heavy and it was a week early. i never went to the doc because they say it should take four days to complately come out and it only lasted 4 days so i thourght everything was fine. but now i am still having symptoms of being preganant like votering in the morning. and some smells make me feel really sick. and i keep needing to go to the toilet but i dont past much urine.
Avatar f tn By January 8, it moved from just hip and thigh pain to sporadic severe abdominal pain and cramps. My period also came this day, two weeks early, with heavy bleeding and clotting. I have been getting periods since the age of 13/14 and I am now 21. They have all relatively been the same and never lasted longer than 4 days. It is now day 6 and it's still here, with the same heavy bleeding (no clots though.) When I originally posted it was thought to be an ovarian cyst that was passing.
Avatar n tn I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days.
Avatar n tn I began my period on June 13th and it has not stopped since. It has been heavy with a lot of blood clots. Up until now I have had my period like clockwork every 28 to 30 days and it normally lasted for 5 to 7 days, with the first day or so light then rather heavy and light again at the end. What is wrong and is there anything I can do until I am able to get into see my doctor? My energy is beginning to drain and I am becoming extremly exhaused.
Avatar f tn Is the spotting brown like how it was at the end of your period? It could just be left over blood from your period. Usually ovulation occurs midway through your cycle. Depending on when you usually ovulate you could be at risk for pregnancy. But you wouldn't be showing symptoms now even if you were. I think if you just give it a little time the spotting will stop and you will be okay. Make sure to be safe!
Avatar n tn I'm now going through my first period but I am having lots of blood clogs, heavy cramps, and heavy bleeding. Never in my life has a period been so hard. I wanted to try again for a baby because this all was so unexpected. I have read online about people getting pregnant right away and hoped to be one. But now I truely understand why doctors tell you to wait at least 3 months.
Avatar f tn Hi there, From your symptoms it may not be possible to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. A medical evaluation is necessary. Heavy periods can be due to hormonal imbalances, conditions like fibroids, endometriosis, PID, polyps of the lining of the womb, DUB etc.It is suggested to see a doctor for heavy periods since excessive bleeding can lead to anemia and weakness. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination.
155534 tn?1275415855 For the past week I have had heavy non-stop cramping and my breasts are a little tender and kinda swollen bigger than usual. I had my period 2 weeks ago. It was a regular period.I am married and in a monogamous relationship.I can't figure out for the life of me what this can be?? I can't be pregant I just had a period, and even if I got prego in the past 2 weeks..it would be too early for these symptoms..Anyone ever get random cramping?? I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured in Feb. 2006...
Avatar n tn I have been having heavier-than-normal periods for months now. Last month I spotted right after my period for several days. This last period wasn't unusally heavy, but I did spot for several days after. When the spotting stopped, my breasts got really sore (AFTER my period) and I got really, really moody and emotional. I was thinking it was probably hormonal and I went to see a doctor day before yesterday. She did a complete physical and pap, so I'm waiting on the results.
Avatar f tn Ive been having really heavy spotting,almost like my period. Im not too sure if i am pregnant. But ive had symptoms all week. Then this happens. Help.
Avatar f tn However I haven't stopped bleeding since and it has been nearly a month. So basically I have been bleeding almost non stop since my last period until now when my next period has begun. I am now feeling extremely light headed and dizzy and have had a headache for about 3 days. Im just curious if this is serious and if I need to go to a doctor.
4113835 tn?1349920135 hello i've been on my period for 3 weeks and its very heavy and lots of clots. I have pcos diagnosed 4 years ago but my periods have been regural for a year now and they usually last from 3 to 7 days. this is unusual. what should i do?
Avatar n tn Heavy bleeding, I am on b/c., cramping in back and abdomen, tiredness, diarrhea(especially during my heavy time,I have not discussed this with Dr, didn't think of it as anything until doing research), acheness in legs, sometimes headaches, nausea sometimes-during heavyness. My periods normally last about 5 to 6days, I do think thats because of the pills. Dr.
