I hope that someone can help me out with this. Well here is the story from start to finish. I am 27 now almost 28. I had a child at age 19. A couple months after my son was born I started birth control pills. I continued on with them changing them here and there because non of them ever sat right with me up until a year ago when I stopped taking them altogether. I couldn't stand the extreme depresssion that they put me under all the time. Soon after my husband got a vasectomy so we wouldn't have to worry. The first three months after I stopped my b/c my periods were very normal. They were exactly the right timing and everything was normal. Then that summer I went through some extreme stress and my periods were late because of it. After that episode my periods haven't come on the right time again. They would be a week late then two weeks late so I would take a black cohosh pill and bingo I would start my period with no problems. As of now the start of my last period that I had was on January 6th,2008. This last period was very painful with pain when I went pee and the other way. I could hardly sit down I had such stabbing pains throughout but it went away once my period was over. So when I found my period to arrive two weeks late again in February I took some more cohosh but this time without success. It didn't work, I took it for about a week and stopped because it didn't work. Then last Wednesday I had some spotting and I thought that I had started but I didn't. I stopped then nothing on Thursday and I had spotting again on friday, saturday, non sunday and now on Monday I had more bleeding and today and still bleeding but very very light. It was 69 days between the start of my last period and last Wednesday when i started spotting. It is to light I don't even need a pad but a pantiliner. It seems to start then stop and start then stop. The colour of the blood was bright red and in it the occasionally what looked like a piece of tissue from the inside. I know sounds gross but I have to be detailed. I have been getting headaches every single day, feeling extremely depressed and moody, I have cramps here and there but not to bad, I am very fatigued, feel mentally cloudy and unstable. I have no signs of pregnancy and besides I can't possibly be pregnant because my husband had a vasectomy and is safe. I am concerned as to what could be the problem. Has anyone had this type of problem and what could it possibly be? Any input would be greatly appreciated because i do not have a family doctor as of now and I can't get to see one. I haven't had a pap test in almost 3 years and maybe i should get one. I was diagnosed with clamydia before my pregnancy but I took antibiotics and I got rid of it before my son was born. But that was 9 years ago and I was on b/c pills for almost 8 years prior to stopping them. Anyway if anyone can help me out it would be appreciated.
Thanks

  • You need to see the doctor. You may get some responses here, but you should be seen by a doctor to correctly diagnose your condition. If it's a matter of money, many doctors will give a cash discount. Or look for a clinic in your area that uses a sliding scale for payment based on your income. Some problems you just shouldn't ignore and it has been 3 years since you have been seen. Please go. :)
