Avatar f tn Is it normal to have a period for 15 days and have very hard cramping and very heavy bleeding??
Avatar f tn That's some really heavy bleeding! And here I always thought I was heavy going through the thickest pad in the world when I was your age in about 3.5 to 4 hours. Talk to your doctor and see if she can offer something to help and also make sure you don't end up anemic with that heavy a flow.
Avatar n tn I have been having heavy periods for a while. I have been seeing a new GYN for a little over a yr. She has been showing a lot more interest in me than my past GYN's, which I am very greatful for but I am tired of waiting and would like to know if anyone has these same problems and if you found out what is wrong and what you have done. For the past month my GYN has been running test to figure out what is going on.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you are certain you are done with the babies, and this would be great with all the camping you do. I don't remember if it is a pill form or shot. Maybe ask. Heavy periods are the worst! I remember when I was a kid, my mom would wear two pads, one on bottom and one on back of panties so that she would not leak everywhere and then have to sleep on a towel! She had a hysterectomy when I was 16 and has never been happier!
Avatar n tn I DONT KNOW... IM SORRY... BUT I THINK YOU MIGHT TRY CALLING YOUR DOC,INSTEAD OF GOING DOWN THERE AND WAITNING TO BE SEEN THEN PAYING A COPAY,ALL FOR SOME ADVICE. WAS YOUR PERIOD RIGHT ON TIME FOR WHEN IT SHOULD BE? THE ONLY ALTURNITIVE I CAN THINK OF -IF IT WERENT YOUR PERIOD -WOULD BE A MISSCARRIAGE, BUT I DOUBT IT,IF IT CAME ON TIME OR RIGHT AROUND THE RIGHT TIME.AGAIN I WOULD CALL YOUR DOC-SEE WHAT THEY THINK- THEY WILL LET YOU KNOW TO MAKE A APPT IF SOMETHING COULD BE WRONG.
Avatar f tn Hi, This could be normal for perimenopause. However, if you're losing a lot of blood you get get that checked out. You could be getting anemic. It's also an uncomfortable way to go through life. Your OB/GYN can evaluate you and put you on some progesterone until you're into menopause. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I had the same problem with my first D & C. I had heavy periods to begin with so was actually hoping that the D & C would help (had D&C for miscarriage). Well the opposite was true but after a few months things went back to normal. If it is really heavy you should see you dr to make sure there is nothing wrong and no underlying conditions ie infection. Hang in there!
Avatar f tn dont sweat it, mine did the same thing. did you recently start having periods? because almost everybody is irregular when you first start. its normal. if you notice that after a while its still not right then you should seek a doctors advice.
Avatar f tn why is it that for the past year I have irregular periods with really heavy bleading and strong pains? I have done all tests possible and all seems normal. Yet I know my body and it does not feel right. Could it be stress? I'm 42.
1949518 tn?1326613044 Hi, I've been very concerned with the fact that ever since I've had my leep procedure & d&c, I've been having heavy periods. I would just like to know if that is normal? & will it ever go back to bleeding normal & not so heavily? I also must mention that I've had two miscarriages, one last year in October & one this year in February. I had my leep 4 months ago. I haven't been able to concieve. Does this all just have to do with the miscarriage & leep?
Avatar n tn A month after I had my daughter I had to go to the er because it was literally a waterfall and they said it was normal because I just had a baby. I guess my question is has anyone else had extreamly heavy and irregular periods after a tubal and is it normal? I've always been anemic and I think that the amount of blood I lose every month is the reason I never have energy etc.. Even with the iron supliments.. I have no insurance or I'd go in to see my gynecologist..
Avatar f tn And you probably aren't heavy every one of the days but have a couple of super heavier days. I have 2 super heavy, 1 sort of heavy and the rest are lighter. On the heavier days, I am HEAVY. If the clots are not bigger than a quarter, they are within normal as well. I do not think the abortion caused any issue. But if you are not thrilled with things, you can talk to your doctor.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was only 14 years old, due to very heavy periods, although they were normal in length & came on time. I'm 24 now, and for about the past two years I've had nothing but problems. I will go for 7 months with out a period, then I will bleed HEAVY for about 3 months. I've been to the doctor more times than I can remember, but nothing they do seems to help any in the long run. I am very frustrated.
Avatar n tn I dont think it has to do with being overweight, when i was younger i was very thin and i always had really heavy periods too. LIke changing a pad every hour or 2. Now ive had a baby almost a yr ago and cant seem to lose weight but my periods are not that heavy as they use to be. Try getting on b.c.
Business woman1 here is some info i found http://health.nytimes.com/health/guides/symptoms/menstrual-periods-heavy-prolonged-or-irregular/causes.
Avatar m tn My junior year of high school, I went to the doctor and got a low-dose birth control pill. A week into it, my periods became super heavy and I had unbearable cramps, which I had never had before. My period lasted a straight two weeks, stopped for a week, and then came again. My mom told me to stop taking the pill, so I did. My doctor said that it would take a month to get out of my system. A month later, my periods were still very frequent and just as painful.
Avatar n tn After 18 months of no periods at the age of 53 I have started again? I do have a heavy cold and bad cough - could this be anything to do with it?
Avatar f tn Okay so I started my period August 7th and it stopped on the 13th (this is normal length for me) I had unprotected sex on the 16th and the 19th. I started light bleeding on the night of the 19th. I've been bleeding for 4 days and it's kinda heavy. I don't know why I'm bleeding again but I'm kind of scared.
Avatar f tn Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Normal periods vary between 3-7 days. 16 days continuous bleeding is not normal and could be caused due to a number of issues such as hormonal imbalances, endocrine issues, infections, trauma/ injuries, growths/ masses etc. It is best advised to have this evaluated by a gynaecologist at your earliest convenience for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Avatar f tn It lasted 3 days at a heavy flow, but then it stopped all of a sudden again with no discharge like normal. But then a few hours later i started to bleed again after i had sex with my partner? What can this be?
Avatar m tn Okay so my period last month was heavy because I'd eat a lot of not healthy foods and the month after that I got my period and before I got my period I was on a diet and was eating very healthy so my question is that is it normal if my period this time is light and with no cramps ???? Hellppp also is my period gonna last me more them a week since I'm eating healthy?

Avatar f tn I suppose that you are having continuous and heavy bleeding during menses and this is not normal. You need to consult a Doctor for getting investigations done. The cause of such type of continuous and heavy bleeding needs to be determined. An internal examination, ultrasound scans and if necessary a D&C may be needed. Also immediate medications will be needed to stop the bleeding. Consult a gynaecologist for a thorough evaluation. Hope this helps. Take care and good luck.
Avatar f tn You should see your gyno if you have brown blood along with -pain in the vagina or lower abdomen -fever that could indicate an infection -fatigue -heavy bleeding beyond your normal period flow Hope that helps
285951 tn?1191678814 Ladies some females have heavy periods because their lining of their uterus is thicker then a normal person. Going on the pill helps lighten up your period, but check with your parents before doing that. I had that problem for years, and then after I had my girls, I got my uterus removed 6 months ago, and my lining was twice as thick as a normal person.
