Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods hormone imbalance

period

Avatar f tn For the last ten years I've had extremely painful, heavy periods. I started seeking help in Feb when periods began becoming even more heavy, painful, and irregular and having incredibly bad mood swings.. Pap came back normal. Transvaginal US showed endometrial hyperplasia and a 2cm cyst on left ovary and multiple follicules. Endometrial biopsy was negative. Began apri. Bled consistently for 6 weeks, then 23 days between stop and start, which is fairly common in my cycle.
Avatar n tn I started my periods when I was 9 and fully developed at that age, they were really painful, lasted 2 weeks and very heavy, I was anemic at one point. Do you think it could be hormone imbalance I am suffering from?
Avatar f tn Anyway to my symptoms - the last I would say 3 - 4 months I've been noticing my periods getting shorter. Not very noticeable at first. My periods should be about 5 days. Last month it was getting noticeable, it was 3.5 days. This month it was 2.5 days, and that wasn't even a continuous 2.5 days, the flow stopped partway through for about a half a day and then resumed. This is really abnormal for me.
1134902 tn?1296069744 anywho my question is...could this be caused by a hormone imbalance brought on by my intense workout? even tho Im only spotting, Im still cramping. My family doc is booked up until the new year, so I can't see her anytime soon.
Avatar f tn It was suggested by a friend who has had similar symptoms after having her child that it is a hormone imbalance similar to menopause, that my hormones might be fluctuating badly. I have noticed that these hot flushes occur a week before and during my period, but that has been for the past two months, that might change It has been 3 weeks between both periods (I came on a week early this time), one period I had lasted 2 days. During the past year my periods have been on and off.
Avatar f tn Hello, From your symptoms, it can be due to 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. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn You could have a hormone imbalance. You really need to see an ob/gyn right away as you could now be anemic with bleeding for 8 weeks. Call your doctor and set up an appointment.
Avatar n tn Or do i have some hormone imbalance that is preventing the shedding of the lining of my uterus and im just bleeding? Also i have been shedding hair like crazy for 4 months now when will this stop? And one last symptom I constantly have is lower back pain. My lower back is always stiff.

Avatar m tn Your lab work and symptoms suggest that you may have a form of PCOS which is a catch-all term for a hormone imbalance which leads to irregular periods. In your case, I might suspect that the problem lies with the secretion of GnRH in the hypothalamus. PCOS is extremely common. In some cases, it can respond to weight loss or weight gain--I don't know your weight or if you are an avid exerciser.
Avatar f tn After being off the pill for about 1 1/2 years my periods have been heavy to the point I have to wear two thick pads and change them every two hours. At the start of all this I discovered I had a polyp in my uterus and I had that removed, hoping it would be the answer to the frustrating periods. It did not cease the heavy flows and that followed with more tests. I had a progesterone and estrogen test done on day 12 and on day 21. On these days my progesterone and estrogen did not spike.

Avatar n tn Hello, IUD’s is an important cause of spotting between the cycles. Other main causes of spotting between periods could be due to pregnancy, birth control pills, infection in an area of the body related to menstruation (including the vagina, the cervix and even the bladder). Other causes could be polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases of pituitary gland, hormonal imbalance of estrogen and progesterone and uterine abnormalities like fibroid and cervical dysplasia.
446896 tn?1237806342 I have also had it said to me many times that the sudden onset of this more extreme anxiety that I have been experiencing the last few months, in addition to the fact that I'm broke out like a 16 year-old, might very well be a hormonal imbalance---too much estrogen maybe. I have not taken any birth control since 2003, and at that time I was on a 3-phase pill. I also have no children.
Avatar f tn Since then I have had each regular heavy periods. Even in December my period was so heavy it bled through my pants. So I didn't think I was pregnant. But this month and febuary I haven't gotten my period so I've now missed two periods. Could I be pregnant now? I can't tell my parents because I would be in so much trouble. Just someone please help. And if im not pregnant what could be wrong with me and what are the symptoms so I can rule out if I migh have that or not.

Avatar f tn It then stopped, and a week later I got my period again and this is still going on, and it's surpassing 2 weeks. It's more heavy than ANY of my periods to the point where I find myself running to the washroom very very often only to pass blood and very little urine. I know I'm stressed as I'm a University student and I have my finals on, but I don't feel like I've been pushing myself overboard.

Avatar f tn PCOS usually starts at puberty and is associated with irregular periods and other hormone related symptoms. The most concerning issues with PCOS are the increase of infertility, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and the higher risk of developing endometrial (uterine) cancer at an early age. Your challenge is that PCOS is a systemic, complex disorder that needs to be actively managed by you for the rest of your life.
Avatar f tn The reason why that happens is often because an egg did not properly develop so is not released. When this happens, most likely you have a hormone imbalance. You would want to discuss this with your doctor. If your cycle is within 23 to 35 days, you just ovulated early and that does happen. General hormonal shifts can make a cycle a bit irregular for a person but still considered normal by a doctor/general standards. So, how long is your cycle is the first question to ask.
Avatar f tn I bled for 8 days and had mild cramps on day 2. Very smiliar to a heavy period but with clots. HCG level was at 201 when had scan done and dropped to 4 within 10 days. I am desperate to start ttc after I get my normal period which I'm hoping will come next week. I really want to get hormone tests done especially for progesterone because I believe I may have a hormonal imbalance.

Avatar n tn You may just have heavy periods hon. You may have fibroids. You may have an imbalance but it is impossible to say just from your description here. A doctor needs to examine you. Some sliding fee (based on income) clinics will be more affordable to you. But this is exactly why they want everyone to have some kind of insurance. They want it to be a thing of the past to say "I can't go to a doctor" and then situations getting worse and more expensive and harder to treat.
