    My period wont stop
    cupcakesftw86 posted:
    I have had my period for about 4-5 weeks now and it wont stop. It will stop for a day or less than a day and than start right back up. Have had very large clots and blood is very red. Have been reading up and am very afraid that it might be vaginal fibroids. I have gained weight in the last 6 months and have been drinking alot of cofee over the last couple of weeks due to work. I also do have a very stressful job witrh high stress at home. So not sure what could be the cause.

    It's unlikely that the bleeding is your period. You need to see a doctor to find out why you are having abnormal bleeding.
