12205224 tn?1424027156 I am 53 years old. I have always had heavy periods, but lately my periods have lasted a long time, sometimes two weeks or more, and they become very heavy with lots of clotting. I have to wear two super plus tampons at a time and a pantiliner because they always leak. I hate it! What should I do? What can be done to make this more tolerable or stop altogether?
Avatar f tn I dont have Gas, But I suppose it could be a start. Also, Why would I all of the sudden be getting very heavy clotting periods out of nowhere. I've never in my life had heavy periods, they just started in November.
Avatar f tn No sex since December 10. Heavy clotting period in end of November, Heavy Clotting Period in end of December. Fluttery feeling in my lower stomach and look Bloated. Started period today, Heavy and clotting. Any possible way I could be pregnant?
Avatar f tn I'm seventeen, and sexually active. My periods are normal, and always have been. I have clotted before, but my mother said it was normal, and nothing was ever bigger than a quarter really. I'm not trying to get pregnant, but yes me and my boyfriend so have unprotected sex, and he does release in me. I would not be upset if I was to get pregnant, but I am not trying. I have had my periods regularly the whole time we have seen each other up untill this month.
Avatar f tn Both of these conditions can lead to abnormal periods and heavy flow. This can increase the likelihood of menstrual blood problems such as clotting or thickness.
Avatar n tn I would be looking for fibroids which can cause heavy periods. I would also wonder if you might have endometriosis. There are other options besides oral contraceptives. One really good option is the Mirena IUD. Sometimes taking anti-inflammatories such as Motrin or Aleve or Lysteda round the clock during your period can reduce flow as well. These are all NON-hormonal.
Avatar f tn In November, December, January, February & March I've had really heavy clotting periods, on time every month, lasting much longer than usual though. I haven't had any sexual intercourse since December 10, 2011. But since January I have been feeling movements all over my stomach, by my ribs, in the middle, in the bottom, on the sides, everywhere. Any idea what this movement could be? Please Helppp!
Avatar f tn I jave been having very heavy & prolomged periods for the last 8 months. I had an ultrasound done which showed a small fibroid. My doctor seems to think this couldn't possibly be causing my problem & prescribed Provera for 10 days to START my period. I'm not taking it because I'm not going to intentionally start what I know will be a month long debilitating period bedore it's due.
Avatar f tn Conditions like endometrial polyps, fibroids can also cause heavy bleeding, clots, and cramping with periods. Heavy bleeding with periods can also be can also be a sign of an underlying blood clotting disorder, which can often be genetic. For a definitive diagnosis of this condition you will require an examination by your OB/GYN .Keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn i had two periods in one month now im bleeding heavy and having clots what could be wrong should i seek medical attention
Avatar f tn I went to my general physician due to seemingly endless periods with heavy clotting. I had excessive and long-lasting periods for several months, which coincided with a HUGE shift in my stress levels. Once I broke down and went to the doc, test results showed that my thyroid was underactive along with having almost depleted my iron stores. Again, STRESS. Upon re-test a month later, my thyroid numbers were apparently recovering on their own.

172411 tn?1287086265 Hi there, I've had Stage IV endo for almost 20 years now and there are no consistencies with it, that I can tell you. Sometimes my periods are ridiculously light, 2-3 days & done. Some are brutally heavy and spot well over a week. Some don't seem to stop between one period & the next. Good luck!
Avatar n tn i am having another one that extremley heavy just 4 days later on monday. its now almost wednesday and im bleeding heavy. what do i do?
5675963 tn?1372171187 Menorrhagia is the term used to describe menstrual bleeding characterized by heavy flow and/or prolonged duration. Heavy flow lasting more than seven days but occurring with regular monthly periods may be normal for some women. However, menorrhagia is a symptom, which is usually the result of an underlying condition.

I took a pregnancy test 2 days before missed period test picks up 5 days before test came up neg. but I do have the flu with high fever wat could be going on?? HELP plz!!!
2002523 tn?1327612787 I went to my gyn due to seemingly endless periods with heavy clotting. She suspected adenomyosis and/or polyps since a recent trans-vag ultrasound showed no fibroids. I had an endo biopsy and all they found was polyp tissue. I've since started taking a 91- day pill (Introvale). After 4 weeks, I started spotting and then a week later it progressed to the same old heavy bleeding with clots...
Avatar f tn Hello, I don't know if anyone has heard of cryomalisis (I know I'm not spelling it properly), but it is a procedure where they shrink your fibroids by freezing them, an alternative to a hysterectomy. Well, I had this done back in July of 07 because of clotting, and my OBGYN felt like something needed to be done about it. After the procedure you are supposed to have a heavy flow for about 3 months and then go to basically NO bleeding at all. Well...
Avatar m tn Hi- I am asking for some insight. I have done some reading online about Implantation bleeding vs. menstruation and am trying to figure out what could be going on. My husband and I had unprotected sex around the time my last period was 'supposed' to come (end of October)--I did not, however have it at this time. My last period started Sept. 25. I tested November 9th with a negative result. I also contacted my Doctor, who I am going to see on the 18th.
Avatar f tn I have been having severe clotting during my periods and now they are up to a golf ball size. Is there any help for me.
304970 tn?1331425994 Hey Laura! I definitely would see a doctor about possible endometriosis or fibroids. I do not have a personal experience to share but endo was the first thing that comes to mind. Ironically a condition that causes uterine tissue to get backed up in your body causes heavy, clotty periods and irregularity and pain. I'd also have hormones checked on and a sonogram to see what they may find. But endometriosis is usually diagnosed via laproscopy because a sonogram cannot always detect it.
Avatar f tn Mine were very heavy with a lot of large clots and did not get lighter for well over a year. My doctor was not worried about it.
Avatar n tn I am 36 also and noticed end of last year my cycle was changing to heavy and clotting. It Used to be a moderate no clotting,4-5 days. Now it's lasting 5-6 days. I'm guessing it has to do with getting older.
Avatar f tn I've had very heavy clotting periods, on time each month that have lasted 7-8 days, for the past 5 months. Can you still be pregnant with periods that heavy?
