Having: Having a long, heavy period is typical when you haven't had a period for a long time. This happens when a woman doesn't ovulate regularly. This can happen when a person has gained or lost weight, has a hormone imbalance, or is getting close to menopause. Not having regular periods also puts a woman at risk for a uterine pre-cancer or cancer. Consider the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud to protect against a pre-cancer or cancer. ...Read more

You should see your gyn and they can do an endometrial biopsy to rule out most tissue causes. If normal then they can treat hormonally. You are likely entering perimenopause. ...Read more

Hello, so I just turned 18 and I haven't been having my period for a long time. I know I'm not pregnant that's for sure so what's could be going on?

If your period lasts a long time and its heavier could you have an issue with losing too much blood?

If your period lasts a long time and its heavier could you have an issue with losing too much blood?

Absolutely: Menstrual blood loss is the number one reason for anemia in teen girls. Further, most teen girls don't get enough iron in their diet to overcome the monthly loss of blod, so those two things combined complicate things even more. If your not big on high iron foods (red meats, dark green veggies lkike spinach, greens, broccoli), you may want ot consider a daily vitamin with iron. ...Read more

Had bad cramps in lower stomach. Didn't get period for long time. 2 negative tests. Could I still be pregnant?

Had bad cramps in lower stomach. Didn't get period for long time. 2 negative tests. Could I still be pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...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
