    3 periods in one month

    I used to be very regular on my periods you could set your clock by me but starting last month things have gone a little crazy, I started my period on April 3rd and finished on the 9th which is normal, suddenly on the 17th I started again and finished on the 24th and now today May 1st I start again. I am 36 now and had my tubes tied after I had my son in 2004 I wonder if I can take anything to stop this, my mother died of ovarian cancer at 36 so I am now panicking, friends have suggested I have a hysterectomy but I am about to be promoted at work and time off would ruin this plus I do not have long or short term disability to be off from work that long, and my insurance is not the best and being a single mom means finances are very tight. any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You are not having three period in one month, you are having episodes of abnormal vaginal bleeding. There isn't anything you can do by yourself to stop it; you'll need to see a doctor.
