My mother is 37 years old with 2 children, both teenagers. For the past couple of months she has been extremely worried of her period. When she is on it, it is very heavy and clotty. Her words are she feels like a stuffed pig. She has been having serious back problems and headaches for the last few months. Her period is abnormal and she doesn't know if this is a sign of menopause of something seriously wrong. She can't just go to the doctor because she doesn't have insurance right now because she was laid off. Does anyone have any ideas because I can't watch my mother go through this any longer??
