I'm slightly unsure of what's going on. I am just wondering about what my first step should be. I guess I'll start at the beginning. I typically have an irregular period but last month I experienced something I never have in my nearly 10 years of cycles. My period started light like always but never picked up and instead I started getting a dark discharge (it was practically black). I talked to a family member who said it's normal to get because it could be just old blood, I knew that was possible so I didn't worry even though I never got my normal period. This was all about a month ago. Now the past few days I have been experiencing (dirty talk) urgent diarrhea. It hits me all at once and frequent and is accompanied with nausea and extreme fatigue. I haven't eaten anything I haven't before and no one else in the house is experiencing this. I'm wondering if anyone can give me advice to ease my mind. (side note: My boyfriend and I never use protection during intercourse because we are trying for a baby) Do I need to make a Dr apt since this has been happening for 2-3 days and if not is there anyone with advice on what to do from here? Thank you for your time and any help you can give.
