Heavy bleeding as in a heavy period? How often are you changing pads?
Well, you aren't pregnant if you are bleeding that much, though you might have become pregnant then miscarried very soon after.
If you keep bleeding that way, you're going to be seriously anemic, if you aren't already. Have you made an appointment with a gynecologist? If not, do so today. (In the US, certified nurse-midwives sometimes provide women's health care, I don't know how practitioner licensing works there, but the several nurse-midwives I've seen over the years were kind, compassionate and very sharp-witted.)
i am having to change my pad every hour, still been getting clots its worrying me because my mum had the same thing and she had cervical cancer and had to ave a hysterectomy, i would like to have another kid years down the line.
the earliest appt is 27th march, cant wait that long as getting dizzy sick ect
no cant get in any earlier, thats the only day she is inwhich is stupid if u ask me. i told them all about the amount im bleeding, the clots i am getting as well and how many pads im using in a day, they still say thats the earliest.
im gonna leave it another week, if i dont get the treatment i need, i will b going down the hospital myself. been drinking loads of fluids, but i keep vomitting it back up
If you are vomiting up the fluids you're drinking, I would NOT wait a week. 24 hours of vomiting and not drinking can cause dehydration. If you are alone, I would seek medical care right now. If there's someone else in the house, you can probably wait a few more hours. The one thing you don't want is to pass out.
If you have a fever, it's possible you have a pelvic infection, which also requires immediate treatment.
Hi A health professional may need to help decide why the vomiting is happening. Is the period painful as well? If a person has just vomited they could wait a couple hours before trying to put a sip of water in. In the past to retain water some people have held a tiny sip water in the mouth a while before swallowing. Others have used a retention enema with water held in and not allowed out. I would be sure the anal area is cleansed well first and then a little olive oil first. If a person has endometriosis they might want to skip the retention enema. With long bleeding maybe this is a difficulty, but a Gynecologist could help determine if this is present or not.
A little lemon freshly squeezed can be used a few drops at a time in the mouth for sugar levels. Once water is retained well then a little freshly made apple juice might be tried. I would not use the frozen type from the store nor the bottled the enzymes are not the same. A raisin can be held in the mouth also for the same reason. I would not use candy in case yeast is present. When the stomach is finally hungry again a few dry homemade oat crackers may be useful. I would begin with one or 2 crackers at first if this is well tolerated when hungry again more crackers can be used.
Oats are dextrinized by putting in an empty dry pan and stirred constantly while the heat is on a low or medium heat. After the smallest peices are turned slightly tan the heat is turned off and continue to stir. Then a little water is poured in and they are cooked like oatmeal adding sufficient water to cook well and the water is cooked out until the mix is thick. Then it is allowed to sit 20 minutes to 1/2 hour. A steel spatula can then be used to skim thin slices of it and put on an oiled steel cookie sheet. The heat for the oven is turned to roughly 200-250 and allowed to slowly bake dry. After the tops have mostly dried out it is turned over to dry the other side. Juiced Romaine lettuce can help replace lost blood once the ability to retain fluid has returned.
Foods good for the stomach: Cabbage, (red, green, chinese,savoy) kohlrabi, (the cabbage and carrot family is also possible thyroid blockers according to some and with period problems one might not want lots and lots of the cabbage family but it is needed for the stomach healing). Other foods good for the stomach include, pineapple, potato, sweet pepper, rice, carrots, apple, papaya, avocado, squash, sprouts, brussel sprouts, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, sauerkraut, cherimoya, okra, seaweed, pomegranite and fennel.
I would avoid chemicals, spices and alcoholic beverages and tea.
Also once solid food is kept I would use foods that contain more iron such as raisins, dried apricots, beans and when the stomach is ready, a reasonal amount of nut butters or nuts. Have a nice day!
