Late period, now long period, large blood clots

I was ten days late on my period, so I went to the doctor after have a negative pregnancy test. She diagnosed me with a vaginal infection because of the missed period and vaginal discharge I was experiencing. She prescribed me some medication to heal the infection and to bring on a period. After waiting two days to hear the results of my tests, I got a call that it was not an infection. I never took the medication because my period came in the next two days.

Now, I have had my period for eight days, which is not normal for me. Normal is five days. This period has been really heavy, and I have passed three large blood clots.

What could this mean/ be?

When should I seek care from my doctor again?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. You need to let her know or see a specialist such as an OBGYN and explain what is still happening.  Many other conditions such as cysts, fibroids and many other. Can also cause changes in your periods.
