Iam 28 years old woman married a year back and my period was regular till January. After that i got changed and i used to get periods every months. I got tested and the report was clear. But the periods last month was for abt a month. First 15 days was heavy and i used to have 7-8 pads a day and the next 10 days was like normal periods and last 5 days were light and stopped. After that I had sex with my partner and everything was ok. After 15 days, when we enjoyed the blood started coming out during the enjoyment and stopped everything. Then i had light bleeding for 5 days and again stopped. Again we tried to have sex, but the same problem ie. light bleeding started. Am I in a serious condition? I am really concerned and we are planning to have baby next year. Please help me in this situation what would be the problem? Is it a serious one or a normal one? Please help me.

Thanks in Advance

  • You haven't mentioned seeing a doctor, so I assume you haven't. You need to. You went from having regular periods to what you describe. Something has changed and you need to figure out what it is, particularly because you're planning on having children.Don't be scared. Do go find out what's wrong with you. You'll feel much better once you know what you're dealing with and what to do about it.Good luck sweetie.

  • What form of birth control are you on? If you are taking any hormonal ones, including the pill, IUD or patch, this could affect your cycle. I had a copper (nonhormonal) IUD that lead to severe bleeding until I had it removed. Please visit your gyno and get checked. This isn't normal. Best wishesDOM

  • My partner had a similar problem to yours. They first thought it was hormonal, but the third doctor, using ultra-sound imaging, discovered cysts which then had to be removed by a small routine operation. Cysts don't necessarily affect fertility. It depends on where they are located. In any case, have it checked!

  • Please go see a gynecologist asap! What you are describing is not normal and can be serious if you bleed enough (lose enough) blood to affect your red blood cell counts. Do not try to self diagnose this problem. I nearly lost a good friend who had an ectopic pregnancy; she came to work feeling very cold and looking pale. Next thing she passed out, and the paranmedics had to rush her to the hospital and straight to surgery. She nearly died from shock of bleeding into her abdomen, as the fetus grew in her tube and ruptured it. As it was she was out of work quite awhile and lost an ovary.Excessive bleeding as you are describing in your post can be quite serious. It should be checked out as soon as possible. And if you have other symptoms like fainting, fatigue, feel very cold/clammy, low blood pressure, extreme pain or signs of shock then even a trip to the ER instead of waiting for gyne appointment. Don't wait too long to get in. 15 days of heavy bleeding. 10 days of normal bleeding. 5 days of light bleeding. Well that is 30 straight days of bleeding. Get in to the doctor soon!Keep us posted on how you are doing. Take care of yourself and please insist on getting in right away. If you can't, then go to another DR, Clinic or an ER. Don't wait as this can indeed be something serious and can effect your health in many ways including your reproductive health.Do a search on excessive menstral bleeding.I don't want to scare you; but you must understand that you really need to see a doctor if only to rule out some pretty serious problems and get yourself better.
