The Parguard: Can make bleeding worse. It sounds like it is your first period so I assume you are not breast feeding. There is a medication called Lysteda that will decrease bleeding during menses. You could get on the pill for a month and see if that improves it or wait it out. It may not be as bad going foreward.

If I had sex 13 days ago and I got my period like normal time, could I be pregnant?? It was heavy enough to wear pads and tampons. Am I pregnant?

If I had sex 13 days ago and I got my period like normal time, could I be pregnant?? It was heavy enough to wear pads and tampons. Am I pregnant?

No: If you had a regular period after unprotected sex, then it is a very safe assumption that that instance of sex did not lead to conception and pregnancy. Implantation bleeding (bleeding at the time of a brand new pregnancy) would be unusually light and is typically just a bit of spotting if anything at all. Rest assured that an abnormally heavy period would not be implantation bleeding. ...Read more

First: First of all you posted in ob/gyn, are you pregnant? If so this is an emergency and you should go to OB triage. Hopefully you are not pregnant, I think you would have mentioned that in your post.
On to your concern, you need to be evaluated by your doctor right away, a more worrisome issue would be a fistula or it could be something as simple as a uti. Either way you need an evaluation and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

Light menstrual flow: If your period is just beginning, your flow may be light. Once it gets going, it could pick up. Blood may pool in the vagina before showing up on a pad. Depending on your "normal, " as long as the rest of the period is not out of the ordinary, there is no need to worry. But, if you are concerned, take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Tampons are safe: Tampons are very safe when used correctly and often more convenient than pads. When learning how to insert a tampon, read through the guide that comes in the box. It is very helpful to put a hand mirror on the floor and stand over it, so you can actually see what you are doing. It is okay to wear tampons at night. Never leave a tampon in for more than eight hours without changing to a new one. ...Read more
