I am 21 years old, and have had my menses since I was 13 years old, and have always been regular. I take birth control for birth control, and nothing more, and I never miss a day. My cycle was always like clock work every 28-30 days, and I would bleed for 3-4 day's the first day or two heavy, and the last day or two light. I have always experienced regular PMS symptoms, including light to mild cramping, mood swings, and bloating.
February 23, 2011 I had a partial molar pregnancy at 9 weeks, and had to have a D & C, everything was cleared, and I was given a clean bill of health. My cycles returned to normal for a few months, and then in September & October I had 2 cycles that lasted 8-12 days, heavy almost the entire time, and then they returned to normal.
Starting in February however I've had my cycle every 14-15 days, and they last now for 4-6 days at a time, heavy the entire time. I have gone to see a doctor, and they did a transvaginal ultrasound which came back normal. The doctors search for what is wrong with me pretty much ended after the ultrasound, because they said there was no need to come back in, and they won't give me anything for pain because there's "nothing wrong". So I am going to get a second opinion next week, because I know that a period that comes more often than 21 days is not right.

What I was wondering is if anyone has had anything like this, knows anything about what could be going on, or suggestions... I have an appointment with another doctor, so don't tell me to go see a doctor! I'm just posting this for ideas of what could or could not be wrong with me, not for a complete diagnosis!
