So I am 18 years old, and yes sexually active.
I havent been sexually active for 8 months until May. But it was only for maybe a week. And i havent had sex since. And ever since then my periods have been different. Now ever since I started my period they have been peicular. But now its getting out of control. I was on my period from maybe May 20th- June 15th. And the bleeding never lightened, just got heavier and heavier then one day just stopped. I woke up once int he middle of the night, I probally only had my tampon on maybe 3 hours. And I had blood running down my legs and it was everywhere uck. But I also was having really bad back pains and lower ab pains like cramps, but worse a lot worse. I dont have medical insurance, so I just thought it would go away but a month later, it has came back.
Im going on my 4th week of being on, and ive gone through 3 boxes of tampons. The pains are comming back, but now it jus makes my entire body ache. I tried to make an apointment to see someone but the cheapest place was $140 for just an office visit, no testing nothing thats just to get to know whoever is going to look up there. She didnt tell me how much the testing would be, and i dont think i would want to know. I dont have that kind of money. I would really love to get a feel for whats happening, I mean maybe it could just be an irregular period that is reoccuing for awhile. But i dont want to sit here and think it is, and it not be. I dont know what to do or think.
Anybody that thinks they know what could possibly be wrong?
