Bleeding and some pain

I am new to this board. I am 29 years old and have 3 children.

I have been bleeding pretty heavily for about 3 weeks now. I had my period 2 weeks before this started. My period has been regular my whole life of having it. I got it exactly every 28 days and it lasted 7 days every time. 3 days ago I woke up with pain in my lower abdomin mostly on the right side. I haven't really worried about this until the pain started. Yesterday I was still a little sore on the right side but I feel a lot better today but the bleeding seems heavier today. I haven't got to the doctor yet. I would really apprieciate any information on what could be wrong. Has this happened to anyone else?

Re: Bleeding and some pain

It could be a couple of things. The most likely is that you missed ovulating. When a woman ovulates, her body starts making progesterone. The progesterone is what eventually stops your period. If you skip a month without releasing an egg, progesterone will not be released and it can cause a never-ending period. It happens sometimes.

Another possibility is some type of tumor. Fibroids can cause you to do this. Endometriosis can also cause this.

Your period may last a long time. You should really see a doctor. He can make it stop and investigate.

I had a period that lasted from February until May. What a joy that was. In my case it was missed ovulation. They gave me high doses of estrogen for a couple of days, I went on the pill for a few months, and it went away. I also had pain, heavy bleeding.

Good luck to you and don't wait for months like I did.

Thank you for answering my post Linderella. I really hope it is just a missed ovulation and not something else serious. I am going to the doctor tomorrow.
