I have been on my period now for 2 months straight. Nothing painful. It started off very light and progressed and been passing clots the size of a 50 cent piece if not bigger. It is really heavy now. Having to change tampons every 30 minutes. Any Idea what is wrong with me? This doesnt seem normal to me. I've never had this happen before. Always had a 3-4 day period and not heavy.
Thanks for your Reply!
