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
