  • I'd be more libel to call my gyn for a same day appt than to sit in the ER. Avg waiting time in ERs for non-criticals tends to be around 3-4hrs. Good luck!

  • Uh you need to go to the ER immediately. It sounds like you are hemorghing and it needs to be stopped. Did you just have a baby?

  • Look I have had problems with hemorrhaging and have almost died from it. It sounds like you are hemorrhaging and need to get in NOW. If you keep waiting you could pass out. seriously go now I'm not trying to scare you but after going through that myself and almost dieing twice you need to go to the ER, they will call your doctor for you and they will not make you wait. I waited way to late last time and started seeing double and blurred vision on the hwy with my baby in the car and had to call 911 because I had lost to much blood. By the time they got there I was passed out.

  • If you can get in with your OB ASAP then do that. Otherwise, go to ER. As others have said, you could be hermoraging. Or it's possible you are miscarraging and not even know. Or any number of other things. But that much blood is NOT a good sign.

  • Go to your doctor now, or to an urgent care clinic, or to the ER. Get help right away.

    When you get back, if you feel up to it, would you please post a follow up so we know how you are?

  • Yep, it's too much blood and sounds like hemorrhaging. Go to either your GYN or ER ASAP. Good luck!
