Maybe a rest: It sounds like you have already checked things out pretty thoroughly. Occasional breakthrough bleeding/irregular bleeding is a side effect of continuous treatment. If you have stopped the pill briefly (3 or 4 days) and the problem has not resolved then it might be necessary to give it a break for a month or two. Alternatively, higher doses for a while might also work. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Pregnancy?: Heavy bleeding with clots can cause severe pain as large clots to be forced by uterine contractions through the narrow canal in the cervix. The strong contractions can cause nausea. Obtain a serum HCG test to make sure you are not pregnant, and if positive see your healthcare provider immediately to make sure the pregnancy is not in your tube (ectopic). ...Read more

Many things: It is hard to answer definitely. Depends on age and other factors.

See your doctor. ...Read more

I've periods for last 13 days with heavy bleeding and clots, what should I do to control this bleeding?

Several options: Bleeding in women in the late 40's is most likely due to lack of or diminished Progesterone levels - that is the hormone that drops first. So taking Progesterone pills or using the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can help. Other causes for heavy and long periods include fibroids or polyps or adenomyosis or uterine infection or abnormal cells in your uterus. See your doctor to evaluate this. ...Read more

Your hormones are: in flux for some reason. Many factors affect the normal flow of periods including age, season, weather, stress, exercise, body girth, nutrition, etc. I would wait until the period returns and see if the next cycle brings regularity. If not, then you can always seek the help of family physician or GYN provider to see if you can regulate your menstruation. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

 4 days on my period I've had heavy bleeding &passing clots the size of two quarters sometimes I feel the clots pass &it's painful should I be worried?

Very common problem: Hi Mia,

I am very sure that you are uncomfortable. The cause of the symptoms you describe should be
investigated by a physician. She/he will likely rule out blood clotting problems, hormonal problems or problems with the uterus such as fibroids.
Do not worry there are many options available to you. Many options do not involve surgery therefore no interruption to your daily routine. ...Read more
