- Why is my period heavy and lasting over 2 weeks?
- Q: Normally my periods last 5 to 7 days. Now i got my period this month and is still going on heavy now for over 2 weeks. I'm scared I'm losing alot of blood. The clinic I go to can't see for a few days, and I have no insurance to go to a regular ob gyn. Any twist, turn, or movement made through the center of my abdomen feels like I'm being stabbed.
- A: I had my period more then 2 weeks once. But if it feels different then your normal period and way worse I wouldn't hesitate to go to an obgyn soon. Money shouldn't matter in a serious situation. My cousins mom didn't have any insurance either and wanted her to wait a few days to go to this other place and my mom ended up taking her. Good thing she did! She had a UTI which was very painful for her and wouldn't stop without the medicine.
- Another heavy period question: why do I clot so much and why are they so large?
- Q: Ok, I'm on my period but this month it's very heavy. When I have a heavy flow, I get huge clots, and I mean the size of my hand in length and about an inch wide. My cramps are pretty severe, too, and I'm at work, so I'm sitting a lot. Everytime I move, the blood just gushes out. Sorry if it's gross, but these huge clots scare the crap out of me. Anyone know why?
- A: yeah i'm like that too. but i'm 14 and it's not as terrible as you described. but the size of your hand in length? that must be horrible!i don't have cramps but suffer terribly with lower back pain. the blood simply came as i sneeze or change a position. it's been pretty irregular for a long while, since i first started. but this one is the longest. it's been the twentieth day already. with the few days in between when there wasn't a single drop of blood. the other days weren't that bad, only yesterday was worst because it came clot after clot, like smashed strawberries (sorry). each the size of 2-3 tablespoons. there was about 4 rounds of that in the morning. i had to miss ballet because of it. :(i don't think there is any particular reason for this except that we're irregular or something. your case looks much too serious in my opinion. you'd better go see a doctor, you may need some iron pills, you may become anemic. other than that, there's almost nothing you could do about it.
