Positve pregnancy test and bleeding heavily

Ok so my boyfriend and i have been trying to get pregnant for about 2 months now. Finally I thought I was pregnant, so I have taken 2 tests and both have been positive. I was late for my period by 21 days. Then all of the sudden I start bleeding really bad. I cant wear tampons because I go through like 3 pads within 2 hours. The blood is dark red/brown and has like a discharge and lots of clots, not to mention it has no smell at all. I know a lil descriptive but I have no idea what is goin on. The bleeding will cease for about 4 hours but start right back up heavier than before.. Ive never had this problem.. Any ideas whats going on? Oh and Ive had every sign of being pregnant. I even thought I had implantation bleeding a couple weeks ago.

I would contact your doctor bleeding in early pregnancy can be normal. Your smart to not use a tampon because you cant use those when your pregnant in the first place. I bled in early pregnancy for weeks... however I went through like 3 pads for the whole day. I would suggest you contact your doctor because bleeding THAT much can be very dangerous to you plus it sounds like it could be a miscarriage. You might actually want to go to the hospital. I hope everything turns out okay.

It doesn't sound very normal, it sounds like an early miscarriage. Call your Dr. If ou soak more than 1 pad an hour they say go to the ER...

Hi, sounds like you might have a subchorionic hematoma. Basically a pool of blood that has formed on your uterine wall usually due to a ruptured blood vessel. You should see a doctor ASAP. I have one and "gushed" blood at 12 weeks and passed clots etc.The bleeding was very heavy and worse than any period.  I still have the hematoma at 17 weeks although it has gotten smaller and the bleeding is less. They can cause miscarriages, depending on size and location and how for along you are. Let me know how things work out.  I hope everything will be okay,

I can't believe you were bleeding that heavy (3 pads in 2 hours) and your Dr didn't get you in or send you to the ER.  That is not normal and needs to be checked.
