I have been on my menstrual cycle now for 3wks?

I’m 39yrs old and have 4 children. I have been on my menstrual cycle now for 3wks. It has stayed at a consistent heavy flow the entire time. I’m wearing super tampons and having to change them at least 6 times or more a day. It doesn’t seem to be slowing at all. My normal cycle is 5 to 7 days with the 1st 3 very heavy and then slowing dramatically the last 3. I’m starting to worry. What can I be?

Can Ellaone morning after pill (MAP) cause future period’s to be irregular?

Hi I need some help,

My wife and I had protected sex on the 26th January using a condom, after ejaculation she was “getting off me” and as she got up the condom slipped off I however pulled it out of her, when I did this the semen leaked on my leg.

We didn’t want to take any risks so she took ellaone MAP less than 12 hours later. Approx 8 days after sex we did a pregnancy test which was negative. She usually as her period around the 17th of the month, she was 14 days late and has no other side effects. After some time she finally had per period successfully on 8th March. The MAP really delayed her period.

She then had her next period okay in April, However it is now May and her period is 5 days late so far.
We have had sex in April but have been very very careful checking each condom after sex to ensure it is intact.

Pls can you advise could she be pregnant or can MAP cause future period’s to be irregular? She has no symptoms of pregnancy

I started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue

age: 24, height: 5’5″, weight: 128, gender: Female, meds: N/A, medical issues: none, duration: 6 weeks, hormonal imbalance?

So it the strangeness started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue. Six days later I get my period although it’s shorter and lighter. The nausea, headache, and fatigue continued. A month passes and over that time I also started to get this pressure/heavy kind of feeling in my uterus, like it was expanding. I’m starting to get a little freaked out because I’ve been feeling strange for a while with little change. I didn’t think it was pregnancy because one unfortunate instance occured a day or two after what I calculated to be when I would have ovulated (although I’d been irregular the 3 months prior). I finally decided to get a $1 test just to make sure and it came out negative. I’m feeling relieved but I still felt strange, something was still wrong.

Three days later I start my period, but it’s very strange. Day 1 was pretty normal maybe heavier than normal but in late morning of day 2 I started passing clumps (not like the ones I would normally get at the end of my period, they were larger and looked a little different, like tissue). The first two were pretty normal but they kept coming getting larger and more frequent. Towards the end I had to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes or so to pass 7 cm clumps. There were about 7 clumps in total 4 of them were large, 3 of them were very large about 3″ clumps. I was also cramping very bad. I normally only cramp the first day and if it’s bad enough I’ll take some medicine and I’m usually fine after that. Not the case, even after taking medicine it was still very painful. The clots stopped after 5hrs, I felt completely drained emotionally and physically (my uterus felt bare/empty). My period continued for 3 more days. The other symptoms I felt over the month subsided after that. What was wrong with me?

Can a plan B contraception mess up your cycle?

Around the week of October 20th I took plan b (emergency contraception) 2 times. A couple days after the second time (maybe around 10/26) I got a short period, I have not had a period since, can this contraception mess my cycle up that much? Up until then i had a normal cycle, of course I have been stressing worrying about it but I have taken many pregnancy tests up until yesterday and all are negative. I just can’t believe it’s been two months with no period this hasn’t happened before after taking it.

I am currently 8 weeks pregnant, can smoke from charcoal harm my baby?

I am currently 8 weeks pregnant. I am wondering about the harms of burning charcoal in the house. I have family members who smoke and although they smoke outside now, they burn the charcoal in the kitchen several times a day before taking it outdoors. Can this harm my baby if they are not actually smoking indoors and its just the burning of the charcoal?

I feel a slight fluttering on my lower left side, pregnancy test all negative, please advise?

I am 52 years old and stop having my period a year ago. But for the last 2 weeks I’ve felt that butterfly feeling you get when you first feel a baby kick. If I look hard enough I can sometimes see a jump in my stomach Its off and on most days especially at night. I’ve had 2 children and swear it feels exactly the same. I’ve taken 3 home pregnancy test and all were negative. The slight fluttering is on my lower left side just above the bikini line and below the belly button. What could this be? I’m also on Adderal and I saw online that can cause false negative results. Also about 2 months ago I did have some slight bloody discharge for a few days but not a real period. Went to a clinic to be check for Std. Which was negative.

Thought I had a miscarriage, ultrasound showed that I didn’t, please advise?

Hello – I am currently 5 weeks 4 days pregnant. Over the weekend I had a scare, and thought I had a miscarriage. However, the ultrasound showed that I didn’t. I did a beta three days ago, and my result was 17,243 and today I did a beta and the result is 31,988 with a doubling time of 78 hours. At this stage of the pregnancy, I read that beta numbers slow down. My beta numbers were doubling very fast last week and until 5 weeks 1 day. Are my current numbers (doubling at a rate of 78 hours) ok for week five? Or does it have to be exactly every 48-72 hours? thank you.

Did I have a miscarriage or is it a normal period?

Hello,

Im a 25 year old and I had my period which began last Monday and normally lasts around 4 days. by Friday it was completely gone and I only had that small amount of brown blood .. I had severe lower back pain this whole time. period is always painful so didn’t think too much of it, however on Monday I went to the bathroom and there was a bloodclot the size of a pea. It was bright red surrounded by a minimal amount of blood.
I had nausea around my ovulation window and was throwing up for 2 days which I assumed was a stomach bug. I also had extremely swollen breasts which are common to me when my period is coming,, however this time my nipples were sickly sore and my breasts had large blue veins.

does this sound like a miscarriage or just a period?

thank you
