This : This is a change in menstrual pattern, so you definitely need to be medically evaluated. If you have fever, severe abdominal pain or your blood loss is heavy then would consider the er or an acute care clinic. Heavy blood loss can lead to anemia and decreased blood volume. Hemorrhage needs urgent treatment.
