I'm going crazy here. My period dominates the entire month, in some way or another. It's rendering my sex life non-existent and my doctor doesn't give a damn. She didn't even refer me to a Gynecologist like I asked her to.
It wasn't always like this, but my periods are now over-extending themselves. I'm in pain as I type this out.
On the 2nd of this month, I started having the really intense "preparation" cramps. The blood flow was brown for days after. Obnoxiously so. It didn't become the tiniest bit red until the 10th or so. Horrific pain ensues thereafter, as par for the course. The bleeding doesn't slow down till the 17th. After that, I thought it was over. It became a light, light brown and fizzled out.
But no. It's now the 25th, and the past five days have been filled with relentless cramping and stringy brown discharge coming out of me. I had awful cramping late last night. Just today, I found a tiny dark clot on my toilet paper. The toilet paper itself was a very light brown after wiping, just to show this BS hasn't fully stopped.
I am so, so freaking tired. I'm tired of the pain. I want to be intimate with my man, but I don't want to subject him to any unpleasantness. These little old clot things won't stop crawling out of my ovaries and passing them HURTS. My gut will be coiling from the agony. I don't know what to do. My months are being stolen from me now. At this point, I only have a week or so of freedom before this starts all over again.
Why isn't all the blood coming out like it should? Is there some kind of blockage I don't know about? Is there something wrong with my diet? There's no foul odor and I know that it isn't an STD. What on earth is going on with me?
