bettyboop71 posted:
I had my usual period 1 1/2 wks ago which is heavy w clotting lasting 6 days. now 1 1/2 wks later I am having a 2nd period w clotting I am on day 4 w no signs of slowing or stopping. I have been taking prednisone for connective tissue disease & RA also taking hydroxychloroquine for 2 mos. the 1st month I had a my regular heavy period. but this month I am having my 2nd period of the month. could this be caused by the meds or should I go to the gyno to see what could be up? also I had normal pap & transvaginal ultrasound 2 mos ago. the gyno ordered the transvag ultrasound because I have heavy periods w size of quarter or fifty cent piece clots, but found nothing.
