My period started at age 11, they'd be terrible, blood clots, feeling faint, and sometimes I actually would faint (either due to pain or blood loss). This was the norm for me up until I had two ovarian cysts, where I would bleed for months on end, but instead of normal blood it would turn very light brown/grayish. I've been put on hormonal birth control to help, but I'm still never certain if I'm actually still getting my period. All that happens now is this light spotting and at very odd times during my cycle. I have lost a lot of weight, but this weight loss has been happening for years without affecting my cycle, so I'm not sure why this is happening now. I've been checked for all the usual culprits, but everything checks out. Please help, thank you.
