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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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
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
