This is very irregular for me. I was very late starting and now the blood is not stopping. Was soaking a tampon every 1.5 hrs had to stop wearing them though because I think I have a uti now because of them. I feel terribly tired and woozy. I don't have any insurance and don't want a huge hospital bill if I can help it.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. If you are having a constant period, you could always call your OBGYN which can provide you a prescription for medication to help your period stop. If you are feeling tired, it is simply because of the blood loss and you are risking anemia. At this point, you will have to seek a physicians assistance and worry about the lack of insurance later.

Do you think you may be pregnant? Perhaps having a miscarriage?

Thank you for the additional information.
