Okay well this all started October 1, 2007 I started my period, and it was pretty normal to the months before, until I was on Ortho Novum 7-7-7 at the time. I stopped on October 7 which was normal I varied 3-7days a month. Well on the 12th I started again it wasn’t really heavy but I was passing blood clots the size of a half dollar and the bleeding and the clotting didn’t stop until November 3, 2007. I went to the obgyn and she changed me to Level 28. Well everything went back to normal. May 7, 2008 I started my period with tons of clotting varying in size from a quarter to a half dollar and I didn’t stop until June 12th and started again on the 14th that whole time it was heavy and lots of clotting. Well around the 16th I started to have pains in my right lower abdomen area it was consistent and not going away. I went to a different doctor this time for person reasons, and they scheduled me a ultrasound, that came back normal, I had tons of lab work done and everything came back normal, well it was mid-July and I was still bleeding from June, it wasn’t always heavy but I was still bleeding. At the end of July my new obgyn put me on the shot, I was excited for that because I was hoping to be one of the women whose periods stopped. Well unfortunately I wasn’t, August rolled around and I was still bleeding, so I was squeezed in for a cat scan at the end of the August which came back normal. Well today September 13, 2008 I am still bleeding still clotting, and haven’t had a “day off” so I am getting pretty frustrated, and stressing out because I just want to stop bleeding for one day (that would be so nice) well I went to the bathroom and when I went to wipe I noticed that the color had changed from a red from this morning, to a black color that looked like clay. So if anyone can help me please give me some advice.
