Avatar f tn For the past few months I have had very long menstrual periods, lasting between 2 or 3 weeks, sometimes they are heavy, but then sometimes I only get bleeding in the morning/overnight hours. I only get between 1 week/14 days off and then it starts again. I am 28, I have no children, I am still a virgin, and I have always experienced irregular periods(never had a normal cycle)I have also been on a diet for over a year and have lost a lot of weight.
Avatar n tn i recently got off birth control (3 or 4 months ago) and have had irregular periods ever since. i read this is normal. but my cycle has been lasting around 34 days. last month it was 41 days. this month i am at 43 days and still waiting. is this normal for my cycle to get more unpredictable?
Avatar n tn I had a problem with prolonged periods, sometimes lasting several months at a time with an average of one day of no bleeding each month. It came on suddenly after having periods so regular, you could keep a calendar by my cycle. I went to the gynocologist and she put me on some Provera to force the uterine lining to shed. But that was just a symptom fixer. The real problem she wanted to test for was a thyroid issue, so she sent me to an endocrinologist.
Avatar n tn there were blood clots and i couldnt wear a tampon more than 30 minutes without going through. since then my periods have been really light and only lasting for 1-3 days intill now. i started my period just 2 weeks after i ended my last and im still on it. ive been on it for 10 days now but it is really light. it started out really heavy for about 3 days but its been light since. no blood clot but really really bad cramps.
Avatar n tn I am 47 years old. My periods have been coming every two weeks for the last 3 months and are filled with clots. They are very heavy and are lasting up to a week! Sometimes a day or two longer! Any ideas? Am I starting my menopause?
Avatar n tn I really appreciate your comment. I have not sought medical advice for over 3 years for the reason of the quick fix they have in their system. I have been dealing with the bad odor as well during my period not to mention dark in color, heavy flow, and 8 to 10 days of duration, only to return within < 3 weeks and start all over again.
Avatar n tn For the past 6-8 months, I have had pain lasting for 7-10 days after my menstrual cycle ends. It seems to be mostly left sided. I had an ultrasound during the end of my last cycle 2 months ago. My doctors office indicated I had a 1 mm ovarian cyst on my left ovary. Other than that, internal an external ultrasound had no other significant findings. Now the pain is getting worse after each menstrual and I am not sure what it could be. My grandmother died of ovarian cancer.
Avatar m tn i have always had regular periods, lasting 5days on a 28day cycle, but in the last 10 weeks my cycle has suddenly changed dramatically. in the last 10 weeks i have had 5 periods each lasting 7 days, they have all been very heavy and quite painful, with only 7days between each period. what could be causing this? is this normal or could there be something wrong.? will i still be ovulating? could this be a sign of pregnancy? ovarian cancer? or is it normal for this to happen?

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 was suppose to get my depo shot at the end of august, but decided not to due to weight gain and such, so I got my period within a couple weeks after missing the shot due date, now it is march and my periods have been lasting 3-4 weeks! I think the longest i have went was 6 days without a peiod, the rest has been awful,and just this last month, i have been bleeding heavily for 2 1/2 weeks, not good. I am definately feeling the effects- light headed, weak, tired easy and dizzy.
Avatar n tn I, too, have had a supercervical hysterctomy 4 years ago for adenomyosis with very heavy menstrual bleeding and pain lasting 10-14 days. For the last 2 years, I have been in and out of the OBGYN office with cyclic menstrual bleeding averaging every 25-28 days like a menstrual period. The bleeding is very minimal - initially bright red and almost clot-like for a day then tapers off to a brownish stringy discharge(2 days).
Avatar f tn I am assuming its because of the pill, but I had regular periods up until this point. Usually lasting 3-4 days, and at a moderate flow and hardly ever, if ever, experienced cramps. I stopped taking the pill a few months ago, and had a regular cycle. I am now two weeks late and am getting concerned. I had unprotected sex a few times, but never once did he *** inside me. I have take three home pregnancy tests and all have come out negative. I had heavy white discharge last week.
Avatar f tn it lasts for like a minute or less and goes away and then i get a dull menstrual cramp feeling. I cant over exert myself or this pressure like something is going to pop in my pelvis area happens. Im in so much pain. She said these would go away and its been 5 months...ive had about 2 or 3 of the bursting things. Tyelnol and advil doesnt help. My periods are very irregular and heavy..I get a 10 day period every two weeks sometimes less and i soak through a couple extra large pads a day...
Avatar n tn i was on the depo for 2 years it took 6 months for my periods to come back ,iv been on my period for 2 and a half weeks now and my breasts are killing me!i dont know if this is normal but its starting to worry me!shud i see a doctor????

Avatar f tn Mine was 14 which is way too low and I take 200mg 3 times a day during my extremely heavy periods and then 200mg x 1 a day the rest of the month. (That is after raising my level to 37 by taking 3 x 200mg for the first few months). Hope this helps others. This hyperventilation is very difficult to deal with but it probably has NOTHING to do with stress or anything else if you notice it before or during your period and you are not suffering from depression, anxiety or stress at other times.
Avatar n tn So I stopped taking all birth control about 6 weeks ago and this month, my periods have slowed down to about every 2 weeks which is better... but I still need to be on birth control. I am going to see a specialist in Chicago next week and I hope that he will have some answers for me. I was checked for thyroid problems as well as Von Willebrands which runs in my family but everything has been negative. I do not want a hysterectomy yet and I still want one more child.
Avatar n tn He said I realeased 2 eggs but only one was fertilized and I am shedding the other, Its 3 weeks later should the egg be gone by now, Still bleeding and alittle emotional and tired. By the way tubes untied 2 years ago and have been trying for a year.
Avatar n tn I ENDED UP WITH 3 BOYS, FULLY GROWN NOW AND I DID OK UNTIL I WAS IN MY MID 30'S WHEN THE PERIODS BECAME LONG AND STRONG. MY OB GUY SUGGESTED A HYSTERECTOMY BUT MY COUSIN WHO WAS A DR SAID THAT WAS RIDICULOUS. WRONG....I WAITED UNTIL I WAS 50, SUFERED (WHY?) AND WAITED UNTIL IT DEVELOPED INTO ENDOMETRIOSIS... BECAUSE IT WASN'T COMMON PRACTICE. MAYBE MY OB GUY WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME BUT I WISH I HAD LISTENED TO HIM.
Avatar f tn I think i'm 10 weeks becuase I counted back to the last menstrual I had. I was very stressed the last couple of weeks, so i thought that had alot to due with me missing me period. I didnt think it was possible for me to get pregnant becuase i'm been having unprotected sex with my husband for 4 years now, and i never got pregnant. I just hope everything will be fine...
Avatar f tn What was your implantation experience ,and I think since the m/c in feb my period has regulated I received my period every month since then on time every 30 days but this one completely different I took fertility pill for 2 weeks in augs and stopped 2 weeks before my period so it wouldn't throe it off on the 11th I weent to the doctors and he xouldnt find my cervics im guess it was to high I never had it happen I hope it was a sign
Avatar f tn **Back Tracking-- I started my menstrual cycle at 13 and had irregular periods. Sometimes I'd have them lasting 1 day, sometimes 3 days, sometimes 3 weeks. And sometimes I would have two periods a month. (Example: Have one that last two days, and 1 week later I'd start again.) So it's never been a 'normal' lifestyle for me.** **Fast forward 4 years after the exam. and LOTS and LOTS of cramps and mood swings later.
Avatar f tn This caused me to have very scant cycles maybe one every three to four months. I did, however, experience pms symptoms stating three weeks after my period and lasting the full time until I got another one. Not great, I will tell you! I never sought treatment for the hypothyroidism or the production of estrogen and worked on mental health. Try this if you like.
Avatar n tn I had my Novasure ablation recently on April 9, 2008. I'm 52 yrs. old and have always had heavy, long-lasting periods. I was hoping to begin menopause and be done with this, but I had a period the first of 2008 and it just wouldn't end. I was on birth control medicine temporarily before finally having the endometrial ablation done. My dr. did a D&C along with the ablation. All went well and my dr.
Avatar n tn I've just been reading everyone one's comments and since my case is exactly like Sally's you can't begin to imagine how much hope this has given me. I'm 6 weeks along and in my first ultrasound 3 days earlier, they only saw the sac - nothing else. My HCG levals are 7000 so that meant that we should have been able to see the fetal poles etc - but nothing. So I'm going to sit tight, take my folic acid and hope for the best.
Avatar n tn I have been battling doctors for the last two years. I have had heavy periods, lasting for 17 days or so, and with big blood clots. In May I had a D&C and Hysteroscopy done. The doctor removed an endometrial polyp and was pretty sure this was the problem. He said that we would see how your periods go for the next 3 months. I bled for 74 days out of 119.
