Possibilities : Your period is heavy because tissue built up over the past 9 months. The bigger question is why you didn't have a period for 9 months. May be perimenopause, or you may have a thyroid issue. It would be good to get some labs done, and consider an ultrasound to check the status of your uterine lining, and your ovaries. I see it all the time, usually not serious but deserves to be checked out. ...Read more

I : I am answering this six days after you wrote in with your question. Although bleeding during or after sex is not uncommon, large clots and soaking a tampon every 30 to 60 minutes could lead to anemia or hypovolemia eventually. If you are still bleeding or you restart again, recommend that this be evaluated by a gynecologist. If you are engaged in overly aggressive sexual intercourse, you are being injured and this would need to be toned down. ...Read more

What does it mean when you bleed four days without no cramps or blood clots after your miss period and have two negative preanacy test what can this ?
If you missed one: period, it may be b/c of an imbalance between the 2 major hormones that affect the uterine lining. At some point this lining starts shedding on its own which can cause bleeding without the associated cramping etc. that occur with a normal period. If the bleeding is heavy & lasts a long time, or is repetitive, you should be checked out. Otherwise, no worries. Dr. Anne ...Read more
Iam 47 I had my pap smear on wedsnday. I am having like a light period. Light cramps alittle bloating. Some blood clots. Should I be concerned ? I have never bleed after a pap before after a pap. How long can I expect this to go on ?
Not uncommon: It is normal to have some spotting following a pap and the manipulation of the cervix can cause some cramping.

Follow up with the provider who did the pap if bleeding gets heavier or does not resolve within a week of the pap (and it is not time for your period). ...Read more

The color of the blood suggests bleeding from the kidney area as long as you're sure it's not vaginal bleeding. Large clots can occasionally block the bladder outlet and block urination. Kidney stones,tumors,glomerular inflammation need to be ruled out. ...Read more
