Unhappy Bleeding and blood clots going on for 8 months now off and on! please help me!

Hey! My name is Crystal I am 22...

Okay.. I have had a VERY stress full year, moving alot and having alot of family issues, including my grandfather passing. I did not have a period from about January of 2007 to about June of 2007. I am not a drinker nor do I take any drugs.. I am considered slightly overweight but in all I am in decent health. I took pregnancy tests and even went to a help center and they all came up negative.

NOW I have been bleeding very heavily pretty much since June going without the bleeding for MAYBE a week here and there. With the bleeding comes blood clots and not SEVERE cramps.. but pretty intense.. I didn't have insurance and I could NOT afford another doctor bill without it until about a week ago our insurance kicked in with my bf's new job and I am about to make a doctor's appointment! BUT I was just curious before I go to the dreaded doctor.. what people's thoughts on what is going on.. just so I can be prepared!

(Just to list a few past problems so you have a better outlook on my health history)

I have been going in and out of GYNO doctors offices since I was about 12.. I had alot of discomfort due to being molested when I was molested as far back as I can remember until I was about 10.. NOW this never caused bleeding...

At the age of 11 I had a sever bladder infection that caused scarring and bladder problems...

At 19 I had a miscarriage at 4 almost 5 months due to a abusive bf....

Could any of those be factors as to why I am having these problems now? after no bleeding before? other than the miscarriage but it stopped...

I have talked to my mother.. her being a former EMT and she seems to think it's neither stress related or POSSIBLY endometriosis or PCOS...

ANY opinions would help... Thanks!

Well I'm glas you're finally going to been seen. I too have been in your shows no insurance, bleeding heavily, severe pain. The on;y advice i can give is find yourself a good dr. It could be endometreosis, you could just need to be put on birth control pills. BCP's often help to regulate periods. There's many very good medications that could help you once you get the proper diagnosis. Good Luck

I have had this off and on for many years. BAsically since I first got my period it has always been really heavy and really irregular. About 5 years ago it got really bad as you describe. It turns out I had some benign polyps in my uterus which were removed with a D& C. I have had no problems since and have since gone on the Mirena IUD for birth control which basically eliminates your period. Good luck. I know how horrible, embarassing and stressful this can be.
