WHY AM i BLEEDING? Female issues.....?
I think my body just hates me LOL! No seriously though, I have been on the birth control pill for almost 2 weeks. I was put on them because I am bleeding (more like spotting) for almost 2 months strait. Now, I am bleeding like a medium period. Frank red blood, as opposed to brownish, half dried up kinda old blood and clots like I was bleeding before. Honestly, I am SICK of bleeding. Oh and speaking of being sick, I am having terrible cramps and back cramps. The pill is Loestrin Fe. Is this normal body behavior? Am I abnormal? Does anyone know if this is a sign of anything else, perhaps more serious?
It seems every day it gets heavier...
You don't say how old/young you are ...
but no, bleeding for 2 months straight is not "normal."
Could be "nothing," or uterine fibroids (very common), or something else. The most common uterine fibroids symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged menstrual periods or bleeding between periods, pelvic pressure or pain, urinary incontinence or frequent urination, constipation, backache or leg pains. Sounds like *you* but get to a health care provider (& maybe a 2nd opinion) & get diagnosed. If this is it, treatments may vary, depending on your age (whether or not you want kids/more kids) & your physician's skill/comfort level with differing treatments (hysterectomy vs. other things). Read about some options at the Mayo Clinic's website: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/uterine...
Myself, I had the endometrial ablation several years ago. "Periods" now are more like spotting, as opposed to the huge clots for weeks at a time, before. Wondered why I hadn't done it sooner!
Best of luck to you.
