Frequently Asked Questions
What causes heavy bleeding between periods?
I’m 24 and have a very regular 28-29 day cycle. My last period was december 24th through the 29th. Yesterday on the 16th day of my cycle I had cramps and spotting but thought it was due to ovulation. The spotting was new but I always cramp during ovulation. Today I’m having cramps and bleeding that appear to be the same as a period. I plan on calling my dr tomorrow but was just wondering if anyone has some idea about what’s going on.
Although the cause of irregular bleeding can vary according to individual health situations, some of the more common causes include:
Starting, stopping, or missing oral contraceptives or estrogens
Low thyroid levels
IUDs occasionally cause slight spotting
Injury to the vagina from insertion of objects
Undiagnosed vaginal infections
Certain drugs, particularly anticoagulants Vaginal dryness
Some women have spotting during ovulation, which is normal
To always be on the safe side, you should inform your doctor about any bleeding or spotting between periods that you experience.
is the heavy bleeding between periods normal?
i just started the pill about 2 weeks and yesterday i saw some blood when i wiped. i didnt think much of it b.c i know that spotting can be normal. but today it got really heavy. much like a normal period. and i have cramps. i dont want to freak out or anything i just want to make sure that im ok. i couldnt find anything else on the web. the only thing i can think of is i took it late about 4 days ago, like 4 hours. but i dont know if that does anything.
You need to adjust your hormones to the pill and spotting can be normal, but not a heavy bleeding. Losing some days in the regular schedule may bring up some bleeding, but again, not a heavy bleeding.
Sometimes happens but I’d advise you to check it out with your physician as soon as possible if it happens again since it may become of difficult control. Just be aware if it happens again.
heavy bleeding between periods?
I am on the pill and am 7 days away from my last one this month. I missed one pill this month but that was more than a week ago. Yesterday I started to bleed, and it is really really heavy and dark in colour, like the heaviest day of the heavy periods I used to have before i started the pill a year ago.
Should I see a doctor or is this just breakthrough bleeding? I always thought breakthrough bleeding was just like spotting.
I am worried that maybe I was pregnant and this is some sort of very early miscarriage.
When in doubt, seek medical attention. Situations like this are sticky, as every woman is different. What may be true for one person isn’t necessarily true for another.
Heavy bleeding between periods that’s lasted for 2 weeks so far, please help!?
I’m sorry if its a lot to read, but i’d appreciate any advice!
I’ve been having menstrual bleeding for two weeks straight between periods.
I had a regular period that lasted from Feb. 5th to the 11th
My boyfriend broke up with me on the 17th and I took it really hard – couldn’t sleep, eat, very stressed.
I missed my pill (I was at the end of the first week of active pills) the night of the 18th, but I took it the next night when i realized i missed it
On saturday the 20th I started bleeding, but the blood was brown and continued to be brown for half a week. The flow became heavier and more red as the days went on until it was like a normal period.
It is now the Friday, the 5th of March and I’m still bleeding fairly heavily and still experiencing the pain that goes with it.
I’m worried because that’s a lot of blood to lose in the span of a month, and it hasn’t stopped yet
I thought maybe the stress of the breakup and not eating was the cause of it, but i’m taking better care of myself now and it hasn’t stopped.
Or could missing one pill be the cause? I’ve missed a pill plenty of times before but i’ve never bled or anything
I’m planning on going to the doctor soon but money is tight, so i want to know if i’m overreacting or if I have reason to worry.
Thank you so much for reading all this, any advice would be great!!
I know money is tight, but you need to find some way of going to a doctor. I don’t want to scare you, but abnormal bleeding was the first sign of something was not right with me and I went to several doctors before being diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. Please get checked out as soon as possible. It could be that you are just stressed or it could be that your pills need to changed. Hopefully it’s nothing serious but please get checked out.♥
