Bleeding WAY more than usual with my period
lamamademischu posted:
I'm 29. I was on Seasonique for a few months and was then told to stop it (and any type of BC pill). When I stopped it I bled for 31 days. It was heavy (but not heavier than usual) the first few days and then the remainder was spotting. Enough to need to use "regular" tampons. I just got my period on Fri, 25 days after the last day that I bled with my last period. The pain right before i started bleeding was horrific! Nothing I took or did helped ease the pain. It lasted for 2 hrs before I started bleeding. Since Friday (3 days ago) I have had to use 11 "super plus" tampons and 6 pads. The bleeding has at points been so bad that I have to use a tampon and pad at the same time and it still goes through. I have also been passing way more clots than usual. That is not normal for me. Is this amount of bleeding too much for any woman? I feel weak and dizzy, but I've had bronchitis for 8 days, so I don't know if that's the reason for me to feel like that. I've been taking an antibiotic for the bronchitis for 5 days and steroids for 2 days. Could they be causing the excessive bleeding? I just don't want to bother my Dr if this is normal. Thank u!
