Make: Make an appointment to see your doctor urgently. If you can not get in, go to an urgent care or an emergency room. If the bleeding is accompanied by dizziness, weakness and fatigue you may be losing too much blood and be suffering from anemia.
It is crucial you get assessed. Your doctors treatment plan may include hormone therapy (such as the birth control pill) to help regulate your cycle. Also, in extreme cases, some doctors have reocmmended a Mirena (levonorgestrel) intrauterine device, as the hormone in this device is known to remedy heavy bleeding. ...Read more

What would cause a menstrual cycle to last two months and counting with heavy bleeding and clotting? I have two children with a (miscarage in between I had to have a dnc) and it had been 8 moths since I had a cycle before this one

Your: Your symptoms are consistent with dysfunctional uterine bleeding (dub). This can happen when hormones are fluctuating. You had a long time period without ovulating it appears (8 months), and are now having very heavy bleeding. However two months is a very long time and I would urge you to seek evaluation for that and have your blood level checked. Also please be sure that your pap smear is normal. ...Read more

I haven't had any bleeding during menstruation since I have been on Skyla. However, the last two months I have experienced what seems to be severe menstrual cramping accompanied by soft and green stool. It scares me, Should I be worried?

I haven't had any bleeding during menstruation since I have been on Skyla. However, the last two months I have experienced what seems to be severe menstrual cramping accompanied by soft and green stool. It scares me, Should I be worried?

Hormone imbalance: Severe menstrual cramps are painful. Check with the prescriber that inserted the Skyla. It maybe that you are having a side effect and need a different type of contraception. Green BMs likely unrelated. Usually due to green foods or veggies.
Follow the doctors advice and you will be able to relax and not worry about contraception and related side effects. ...Read more

My menstrual period was extremely late, one day heavy bright red bleeding and now two days only spotting, dark red and brown. TTC, have PCOS. Pregnant?

Maybe not: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem. A home urine pregnancy test is very reliable by 3 weeks after sex, 1 week after missing a regular period, or after starting a "weird" period. ...Read more

Hi after my normal periods ended after four days I saw some spotting for two days and on third day it way like menstural bleeding?

Probably no big deal: If you start having bleeding between menses or just after you end your menses, it is unlikely that there is a problem. If the problem continues with future menses, you should keep track of when (and how much) you bleed. A gynecologist my need to examine you to determine if there is a cervical, uterine or hormonal reason for the irregular bleeding, ...Read more

Depending on the timing in the cycle and other risk factors the bleeding can be normal or abnormal.
