I am having issues with my period. I'm 23 y.o. and my period was somewhat regular until now. I have been having my period now for almost 4 weeks. At first it was heavy enough that I needed a pad but not enough that I could use a tampon. Now, its super heavy for about 1-1/2 weeks with large thick clots. I'm not really in any physical pain. I feel mentally, and emotionally drained. I've been having chronic headaches on/off for about 2 months. I'm not under any more stress than I was before. I skipped my last period and then this one came 2 weeks early. My normal period lasts about 5-6 days. I did some research on the web about becoming anemic because of the long period of bleeding and I've tried taking high levels of folic acid and iron to try to get it to stop, but nothing is working. Please PLEASE help me figure out my problem!
