    I had my menopause at 39, had 10 years of HRT which did nothing and from 39 to 58 sweated uncontrollably until I could stand it no longer. Last August, my GP again prescribed HRT and I have not stopped bleeding very heavily since. In March I had a hysteroscope and all was normal although I was and am still bleeding very heavily. I have no break at all from bleeding. I am exhausted and really can't put up with this situation any longer. The first HRT stopped the sweats but I changed to another to stop the bleeding. The bleeding continues and the sweats have come back. Please help!

    I had the implant put in last year (I'm eighteen and had it to sort out my generally heavy period) after a couple of months I noticed a significant differenence in my periods. They became more regular as in I would have one every other week, and they became heavier than they had been before. I went back to my doctor and had the implant removed after just one year, they were hesitant because they insisted that the implants cost the government a lot of money. Since then my periods have gone back to the way they were before, on time however they remain heavy. I believe it's just the implant.

    Hi, I had my first mirena coil fitted on 28/11/12 and ever since I have been bleeding, only small amounts, but constant. in january the bleeding started to get heavier so i went back to the sexual health clinic for swabs and it turned out that i had thrush and bacterial vaginosis so i completed the medications for these. this stopped my bleeding for about 3 days. then i started bleeding again very lightly. do you think it will stop by the 6th month mark on its own? or will i have to go back to have it removed?

    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!

    I have had irregular periods, bleeding in between periods, not knowing if I am going to bleed from day to day I can't tell you how many pairs of underwear have been ruined! I have tried to see if there are any patterns to it and I think it happens when I'm feeling stressed or anxious but my doctor said it's usually the opposite??? I have had a colposcopy and soooooo many smear tests I honsetly don't know where to turn next. I do worry that it might be hiding something more serious especially since I seem to be getting other symptoms in that region now. If anyone has any other suggestions please help. By the way, good luck with your baby plans, you are not greedy!

    I have this problem too! I was offered cauterisation, but am not keen as the consultant said everything looks healthy! I'd love to know what causes this as it's very inconvenient and putting me off sex (much to my husbands frustration!).

    I have been bleeding everyday for 10 months ! Im on a contraceptive injection but have been told that the bleeding is different for that and wouldn't last so long. Im bleeding fresh blood. I have now been put on a contraceptive pill as well this stopped the bleeding for two weeks but has now started again. I've been checked out for all stds etc. I'm so fed up with it all ! x x

    hi i was on the jab and had no periods but i did have problems with weight, mood and skin. i was also put onto pill which gave me very irregular cycles. i would suggest you try another form of cotraception.

    I had a similar situation as yours. Normally am 26 days cycle and 2-3days into bleeding. Suddenly everything changed, started having heavy bleeding and very painful. I had to use tampoon and pad at the same time and within an hour i have to change. I went to my GP and referred to a gynaecologist and detected i've got fibroids and have been offered to have the Mirina implant which has helped a lot with the bleeding and the pain. I was also on Tranexamic acid which helps with the bleeding. And because i was bleeding so much i was birder line anaemic and was put on iron tablets. Please as your GP to refer you to a gynae and get it sorted. All the best.

    are you bleeding actually *during* sex? or afterwards? either way you need to go and get checked out. chlamydia will cause bleeding and pain after sex. if you're bleeding during sex then it sounds like he's tearing you somewhere which isnt good - ask the doctor to give you an internal exam to check everything is okay.

    first of all calm down. what do you mean 'bleeding'? do you mean bleeding in between periods? that the bleeding *is* your period? are you losing a lot of blood? what else is going on?

    You should definately see your GP. You may need to see a gynaecologist for further investigation. Any abnormal bleeding should be checked out. Lots of things to consider. Are you on the pill? It can cause breakthrough bleeding. Are you up to date with your smear tests? Polyps can cause bleeding. Please go to your doctor and try not to worry.

    my story,ive had rectal bleeding from the anus,on and off for 17 years,also know i have piles,as ive seen them on many occassions,,especially if i get diarroah which often makes them prolapse,and they then need pushing in with my finger,ive never been officially told my bleeding is from these piles,but i would assume it is,after such a long time with this problem,also the doc saying significant bleeding from the anus,rarely is a sign of cancer,has helped ease any doubt i might have,im 47 btw,,one other thing,the bleeding has always bee seperate from the stool

    I have been on the Depo Injection for 1year now. In the beginning I had no bleeding at all however, over the past 9 months I have had irregular bleeding and an unusual brown discharge. I have also been bleeding after sex however usually only after climax. Even if it is not penetrative sex. Sex can also be painful. I have had an STI check which is all clear. Although I have been to my GP many times, I do not seem to be getting anywhere! Help! Thanksx

    She may have a condition called endometriosis. I have it, and my periods are very long and irregular, and EXTREMELY painful. I'm on the pill and have an Implanon implant but they're not working. It can only be diagnosed through surgery, unfortunately, but she may want to mention the possibility to her doctor. Try not to worry too much!

    I am 17 and have just undergone treatment for an STI (chlamydia). After the treatment i have been continuously bleeding/spotting for around 4-8 weeks. I read the leaflets that came with the treatment but it says nothing about any abnormal bleeding. Do you have any idea what may be causing the bleeding???

    This sounds similar to me......since having my 3rd child my periods have been heavy and lasting a long time. It's now 18 months since my my last was born and I spend up to two weeks a month with a period which may have some break from bleeding. So I may get 4days of bleeding break for a day or two and them get bleeding again for a number of days. Unsure whether it is something I should worry about.

    I cannot have oestrogen due to it giving me migraines. However for the last year and a half I have been on several progesterone only contraceptive pills and have been bleeding since. Due to this I changed to the depo provera injection, after 3 rounds of this I was still bleeding so stopped it completely due to being completely fed up. However its now been 70 days since I was due another injection and yet I'm still bleeding. My GP/doctor has no idea what's causing it, as by now the injection should be completely out of my system, my cervix has been checked and I've been checked for several STI's, all of which have come out clear. Even the norethisterone pill which stops bleeding isn't working. Anyone have similar issues?

    Hi I'm really worried because I'm 22 been on pill since I was 16, due to having bad period. During that time I have had to children. Carried on using pill, know I bleeding most of time during sex. It's horrible because it looks like I've been attacked down there after wards. I've been with my husband for 5 years. I did think it was because he was to big for me, but know I've realised that can't be the cases because I don't bleed all the time. My bleeding started a lot less when I first got with him. I'm also worried because I'm bleeding during the 2nd week of my pill and I'm terrified that it could be the sign of cancer. I'm always a worrier and scared to go to the docs. Help!! I also found out I have an eroction? (Lump inside virginal area) That appeared with my first pregnancy. Could this be the problem of bleeding during sex ?? :/

    An ectropion is an area of delicate sells which can bleed when there is pressure put on them during intercourse. The ectropion can be cauterised and treated however to rule everything out your doctor should perform some swab tests and perhaps refer you for a colposcopy.

    I have had a section inside my virginal area as couldn't take a smear as very bloody. But everything came back clear.. cancer etc.. while having a 'clipping' done they noticed I was very lumpy down there. I have been told I could have my erosction removed r Froze ?? I'm still bleeding during sex.. I hate it.. not sex with my husband but I dread it as I'm bleeding. This week just gone I bled for a week.. a week after my periods and bled for another week on my pill.. help.. :( if it's nothing to worry about.. smear/clipping clear what's wrong with me ???
