hi im 22 years old. im not on/or ever have been on any birth control. I am sexually active.... Ive had my period for about 2 months (and still going). In the beginning it was heavy with clots coming out that were dark red almost brown to where i would change my tampon/pads ALOT, and its slowed down to where it just spotting every now and then, and back to clots sometimes. Ive been meaning to see a doctor but im so busy with school and work. I Dont know if i have somthing seriously wrong or if its just caused by stress. please help :)
and also this is NOT the first time it just started this year in February . i had period for 2 months then nothing for 2/3 months ( i thought i was pregnant and i took the test and negative.) and started this 2 month period..
Hi! If you were my patient, I would first give you some medication to stop the bleeding. I would also do some hormone testing to rule out thyroid or pituitary problems as a cause for the bleeding. Oh, and pregnancy too of course. If these tests were normal, we might discuss some options (including oral contraceptives) for regulating your cycle--constant bleeding can lead to significant anemia. Good luck! Dr B
