ask: I have been having 3week-1 month long periods w/ large clots. What could be causing the length and clots? Should I worry?

 
Rate This

I'm 29 yrs. old and I've been having periods that last anywhere between 3 weeks and 1 month with about a 2 week break between each period. Along with my period I have huge clots. This has been happening since I had my daughter in 2006. I saw a doctor about it and he just put me on birth control pills to try and regulate it, but that just caused me to have blood clots in my lungs. I went on Coumadin and my period was normal while I was on the meds. Now I'm off Coumadin and my period went back to being long again and with the huge clots. Is there something my doctors should be testing for? Can this cause complications with conceiving again? What is wrong with my cycle?

I use to have this problem but then I went to the doctor and it turns out I was my thyroid. Get your thyroid levels checked and end the suffering.

Hi! I have always had a regular period every month, but this month is different, I started on the 13th of May and haven't stopped, I've gone to see my Dr. And he did some test they came back normal, didn't know what to do now.
Thank you

HI! I've been having an irregular period and its nearly a month now. It started from small blood then it became average and never heavy and when I thought it was going to end it bleed again and still the average. I'm in a lot of stress and I've been sleeping late and I've been taking 3 tablets of vitamins.

Can you advice me some remedies to stop this period or any irregular period that I might have?

Ps. What I mean about average is the blood only stays in the part of the pad that is directly attach to your pubic area

Thankss xoxo

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Your cycle is very irregular for some reason - bleeding for a month is not normal. You need to see a doctor.

Best,

Susan

Hi I haven't had a period since December of 2014 and I just came on my period about two weeks ago and I'm still on my period. The bleeding is heavy some days and light other days. What should I do?

She told her employer? Is her employer a gynecologist? Is so, she needs to see a different doctor. Bleeding for four weeks and passing out is NEVER normal.

You need to see a doctor. You need an examination. Make sure you don't get pregnant again. 

Best,
