Red face period

when i am due on my period i get terrible pains and when i get to the heaviest point in my period i tend to blood clot quite a bit. i dont know if this is normal but i would just like to know to put my mind at rest.

Re: period

It could be a couple of things. My daughter at 18 had this and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian disease. You should speak to your doctor about it.

When I turned 36, I started having the problems you describe (in fact, it was so bad I missed a couple of days of work each month). They were talking hysterectomy but then decided to give me a D&C (I had heavily built up uterine lining) and put me on Depo Provera shots to control it.

Good luck!

Re: period


when you say heavy clots? is that through the whole time you have your periods or just the first day?

Re: period

sounds bout right.. the joy of being female.
if you're concerened, you can always go to the doctor.. if you're diagnosed with a mentsral condition (which is rarely too serious) then you can get prescribed hormonal meds to help ease the discomfort or whatever.. go see a doctor if you're concerend but I think you've just about summed up the horrible feeling of menstration.
