I have been having some problems with my periods for a couple of years now. I was fairly regular up until I was 23, when I missed a couple and then started getting them irregularly. Then about 2 years ago, I had a period that lasted 2 weeks. Another strange thing was that I had no pain. Very unusual for me. Anyway, I saw the doctor who prescribed me something to stop the bleeding, which worked. Then I had an ultrasound scan which showed nothing wrong. After this, my periods went back to being a bit (not majorly) irregular, painful and normal for me. A few months ago, The same thing happened again. I bled for almost 2 weeks with no pain. Large clots, though. This one stopped on its own. Then I had another normal period and that leads to now. At the moment I am on day 20 of bleeding. I have had no pain again. The first week was light and now it's fairly heavy with quite a few large clots and no sign of let-up. I'm not overly concerned as it's happened before, but I would like to know what this could be? Some other detail about me are: I am very overweight. I have no children and I have never been pregnant. I have never used any birth control pills or otherwise. I am not stressed in any way. I am 25 years old. Also, I had a bit of bleeding after sex a few times, but not recently. This was before the ultrasound. I am due a smear test, but obviously need to wait until the bleeding stops.
Thanks for any help
