Get checked: Hi Kevin911 You dont include your age, but continual menstrual bleeding outside of periods should always be investigated because it either suggests hormonal imbalance (including pregnancy), or something else (perhaps even cancer) causing irritation of the uterus. So I'd suggest you schedule with a gyn or FP right away!! ...Read more

Should I still go to the gyno while heavily bleeding if it's been happening for 21 days?

Should I still go to the gyno while heavily bleeding if it's been happening for 21 days?

Yes, Appropriate: Heavy persistent bleeding likely reflects an abnormally heavy endometrial growth layer, unhealthy, can easily result in anemia & iron deficiency & may reflect any of a variety of more serious problems. Thus I would both find a gynecologist worthy of your trust for help & work on studying & accurately understanding the issues as your own primary medical decision maker (physician if you will). ...Read more

Your periods...: ...are usually lighter on OCPs, especially after you have been on them several months. An occasional heavy period can be normal, but if it happens more than a few times a year, I might consider trying a different pill. ...Read more

Im having midcycle bleeding 2mths after micarriage & d&c. I've had one normal cycle. Could this be related to the mc?

Im having midcycle bleeding 2mths after micarriage & d&c. I've had one normal cycle. Could this be related to the mc?

Probably: Theres a very good chance it's due to the miscarriage. Your body's hormonal axis was basically ripped out of a pregnancy state. It's a very abrupt change in hormone levels and just like happens when you change to a new birth control pill, it can take a while to normalize again. I know that's overly simplified, bit the best short explanation i have. Be sure to let your OB know your concern. ...Read more
