Lots of things: If the bleeding persists more than two weeks, get with your gynecologist. Obviously, we want to rule out cancer or catch it when it is still easy to treat successfully. Cancer of both the cervix and the endometrium often present this way, and you should be commended for the pro-active approach to your health that you have already taken. ...Read more

If negative I would wait to see wait is happening with your next period. If it is normal that would be great. If not see your OB/GYN. ...Read more

Irregular period: Different bleeding patterns are not all that unusual but to be sure make sure you are not pregnant as this could still be a possibility. There would be a high likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy. If the pain is bad and the bleeding is heavy you may want to see a doctor. If you are in a bad way then consider the ER or decide if you can wait, depends on how bad you feel. ...Read more

I had my tubes tied 9 months ago. Since then my period has been longer, this time for 2 weeks. I also have severe pain and very heavy bleeding. Why?

I had my tubes tied 9 months ago. Since then my period has been longer, this time for 2 weeks. I also have severe pain and very heavy bleeding. Why?

Multiple factors.: Post tubal pain is not uncommon. The heavy bleeding probably does not have to do with having had a tubal however. Most patients with post tubal pain can be managed symptomatically, that is with pain medications and such. Rarely, due to severe pain, patients have been known to have their tubal reversed. I suggest you follow up with your gynecologist who performed your tubal. Good luck. ...Read more

If I have large clots and heavy bleeding when I have my period even after having my tubes tied and am in severe pain can I get a hyesterecotmoy?

If I have large clots and heavy bleeding when I have my period even after having my tubes tied and am in severe pain can I get a hyesterecotmoy?

See gynecologist: Having heavy bleeding is a reasonable reason for considering a hysterectomy to resolve it. However the next step is to see your gynecologist to help determine what the cause of your bleeding is, discuss and perhaps try options (since sometimes there is something easy to try that's effective) and review your risks and benefits from surgery to make sure surgery is right for you. Good luck. ...Read more

Am I having a misscarriage vaginal bleeding, stabbing pains, lots of blood, just got off my period 16 days before this started. Had my tubes tied

The: The fact that you have had your tubes tied makes a miscarriage a lot less of a possibility. You are lexperiencing menorrhagia (painful, heavy period), causes include:
hormonal imbalance
anovulation
uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus0
polyps
cancer
medication effect (i.e. Anti-inflammatory medications)
pregnancy complications (miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy)

in addition to this list there are other causes. It would be wise to visit your primary care provider or gynecologist for work up and treatment if needed.

Good luck. ...Read more
