Anemia: Hi! i would suspect that you have iron-deficiency anemia. You can get a hemoglobin blood test and if confirmed, start oral iron replacement. Other conditions may also cause your symptoms, so it is a good idea to see an internist. ...Read more

Abnormal bleeding: Depo Provera and micronor (norethindrone) are generally very safe methods of contraception with a lower risk of blood clots, heart attack, and stroke than many other methods. However, these methods are commonly associated with abnormal/irregular bleeding. Contact your md for options. ...Read more

I have had constant heavy bleeding for 4 months, non-stop.  I had vaginal ultrasound showing unusually thick uterine lining.  what could it be?

Depends on age : Depending on thick and what your age is usually helps in coming to what it could be. The endometrium thickens because of hypertrophy. Polyps can do that as well. And yes so would endometrial cancer. Sometimes other studies are needed but above all else speak to your doctor ...Read more

Had constant heavy vaginal bleeding and clotting with right sided pelvic pain for over a year. Waiting for hysterscope and ablation . No fibroids?

Good choice: An ablation is a great option for people with heavy periods who are finished having children. I assume you have had a pelvic sonogram already. Fibroids are easy to see on a sonogram. Even if you did have fibroids an ablation is still a reasonable option. ...Read more

I have constant bright red heavy bleeding with a mirena (levonorgestrel) in place what could this be? I've been put on loestrin 24 to stop it and its not working

Could be the IUD: If you've had a recent iud insertion, it could be the actual iud itself causing the bleeding from a tear or laceration of the cervix or uterus. Give it some time and this should fix itself. If you've had the Mirena (levonorgestrel) for quite a while (over 3 months) and now have bleeding, see your gyn to evaluate for pregnancy, infection, or other causes of bleeding. You may need to have your iud removed. ...Read more

Started new brand of pill 2 months ago. And started bleeding 2 weeks into 1st pack and had light-heavy bleeding almost constantly since.

Okay so for the past 4 months I've had a constant non stop period , im always doing heavy bleeding. Should i be woried?

Maybe: At age 16, there can be blood disorders like von willebrand's which can be associated with heavy constant bleeding. You may want to be tested for this. There could also be a lesion in your uterus that's responsible. Lastly, it could be a hormonal imbalance. If you've been bleeding that much you could also be anemic. I would see a doctor to discuss these things, and check thyroid too. Best! ...Read more

What is this constant sharp pain in my uterus with heavy bleeding and cramping?

What is this constant sharp pain in my uterus  with heavy bleeding and cramping?

Uterine contractions: Whenever you have a period you produce prostaglandins which gives you uterine contractions. Passing clots also forces your cervix open and therefore more pain. Ibuprofen, alleve, taken before the period begins and during bleeding could help. If nothing works, see your doctor. ...Read more
