Conditions with symptom: 'bleeding between periods'
hey i am 18 years old and have been suffering with really heavy periods since i was the age of 9 before and during the periods i have really bad periods pains. since last year i have been diagnosed to the gp as i have been colappsing and bleeding constinlty with only having a 2 day brake and bleeding for 5-8 days. they have currently tuck my blood and i have had a scan and they came back as nothing they were looking for were found is their any suggestns why this is happening to me??
i was diagnosed with pcos 10 years ago, ive always had irregular periods but in the last 3 months i have had heavy periods with light bleeding inbetween, im fed up now i havent had a day off bleeding saw the gp who gave me the pill which ive been taking for 2 months which hasnt changed anything, recent smear was ok should i be worried about anything else?had us scan which was ok aswell. really getting me down now not going back to the gp as they wont refer me to gynae as apparently they would be bored by mere irregular periods!
I've been diagnosed with PCOS for 10 years too. I found the pill to be absolutly useless. The "period" you get with the pill isn't a real period it's just withdrawl bleeding from the lack of hormones. Your not actually ovulating when your on the pill. When I was on the pill I would get bleeding inbetween because the hormones weren't strong enough. Then the doctor increased the strength of the pill and it made me ill. Only thing that actually helped me was the naturopath but it's very expensive. Check how much red meat your eating it's full of hormones and might be throwing yours off kilter. As well soy can really affect you hormones and period.
I have had the depo injections since I was 20 and hardly had any periods apart from bleeding for 5 weeks immediately after staring them. I then had an implant fitted when I was 30, it worked in exactly the same way, hardly any periods, but the ones I had were light. I had the implant changed last year, and I had regular monthly periods for 9 months, but for the past 4 months I have been bleeding most of the time. I have a couple of days off, then start again, it is quite heavy at times, and I have to use towels and tampons together. Is it possible that the implant has only just started to affect me after all these years, or it is likely to be something else?
i started my periods when i was 9 and got put on pill when i was 12 because of heavy bleeding which worked i fell pregnant march 2010 and aborted it since then i have been bleeding heavy all the time i have had pills to stop me bleeding for week or so but its getting me down now very worring
Im 35 and have four children,my youngest is 10. I have laways had regular periods. For the last 4 months i have had irregular periods, pain, heavy bleeding and bleeding for few days tehn stopping for a few adn then starting again. In april i had severe stomach pains and was in hospital. They think i had ruptured cysts in my pelvis but never really explained. I also have spotting in between my periods. They gave me scans and blood tests at the hospital and i had fluid in my pouch of douglas and also a small fibroid in my ovary(which they said is normal). I dont know what is going on with my body but its driving me mad. Any ideas what could be causing my irregular periods and pelvic pain(usually worse in one side)
It's probably the fibroid. They are nastly little things. Go and talk with your doc again and ask them to focus on the fibroid. My sister recently had a partial hysterectomy due to a couple that caused her to bleed for over a year straight.
Hi, I'm 15 and I'm alittle worried in regards to bleeding. I have noticed today (first time of this happening) that I am bleeding out my vagina? My periods are regular and once a month, but I've already had it this month. I haven't had sex, but when I wipe there is blood (not just spots, but not quite as heavy as periods) I don't want to of to the doctor, incase it's nothing. Please help me, im a little bit scared incase it is something serious. Has anyone had this, or heard of this before? PLEASE HELP! Thanks
I had the coil fitted about a month ago and I havnt stopped bleeding since. It's not heavy bleeding and it doesn't hurt but its just really annoying, iv been on 6 different birth control pills and they didn't stop my bleeding, I went on the injection for a year and my periods completely stopped but I got very bad back acne and gained some weight so iv finally opted for the copper coil, but I havnt stopped bleeding since a couple of days after I had it fitted! Also I'm already anaemic some bleeding continuously doesn't help the situation Please help!
For the passed 6 months I have been having irregular bleeding. My periods always come on time but i have very light bleeding inbetween my period. Has anyone else experienced this or have any idea what could be causing this?
I have had light bleeding between periods which in my case is caused by a fibroid tumor. These are benign and generally harmless, but some women get a lot of them, and in younger women can lead to difficulty getting pregnant. These can be removed with surgery if they are causing problems.
I recently started taking the pill (mycrogynon). I took it on the third day of my period as instructed, and two weeks later I'm still bleeding. The bleeding is very light, but my periods only normally last 7/8 days. Is this normal?
This has happened to me before when I have taken two packets together in a row without a break. It has always stopped for me when I have had my pill-free break. My advice would be to continue taking your pill as normal, following the instructions. If, after your pill-free break, you continue to bleed, go to see your GP.
I am 17, I've had period for a couple years and I got the Implanon in Feb 2010. My periods were very irregular for a while then they calmed down, and recently I've been getting periods that last so long I actually get excited when I get a day off. I don't know if this is due to the Implanon and I should get it taken out. I'm also worried whether I could generally just be bleeding and it's not periods...
I'm on implanon and I have the same problem, I can go without a period for up to 3-4 months and then I will be bleeding for a long time, the longest being 2 months with only 2 day with no bleeding, so think it may just be the implanon. Try going to your local family plannign clinic and they will probably help you :) .
im on implanon i have been on for 6 months i went to a g.u.m clinic and they said that bleeding sometimes lasts for as long as a year
