I am 30 years old. I have normal periods ranging from 27-29 days. Normal bleeding and normal length being 4-5 days. I started my last period on 01/15/11. I was around 4-5 days late in February. I bled extremely heavy for around 6 hours going through aprox 12 heavy flow pads. Not much cramping only occasional and mostly in my back. I stayed home from work that day. By noon the bleeding had stopped. There were some clots, nothing abnormal other than one that was a little larger. I have been exhausted so I went to bed around 6pm the night of the bleeding. (yesterday). I woke up this morning and bled as soon as i stood up. Then abruptly it stopped. I have had no other symptoms other than feeling "hormonal". I have taken 2 hpt's and both have shown negative. I took one yesterday around 5pm and the other this afternoon around 3pm. I would like any input on idea's of what could possibly be going on. I can't afford an unneeded trip to my gynocologist due to my husband switching jobs and no insurance for a few more weeks. If anyone has had this happen before please share with me your stories. I am really concerned due to the abnormalities. I don't know how to approach this problem. Or if it really even is a problem, maybe just something that happens sometimes?
