Very Nasty Question But.....

Warning: If you have a very weak stomach or can not handle gross out things..Do NOT read this. But my doctors is out of town for 2 weeks and the hospital has said this was normal. I do not think this is normal at all. I have been on my period for 3 and 1/2 now, For the last 2 weeks I have went thru almost 22 boxes of extra heavy duty tampons. I have blood coming out of me that looks like runny snot that has filled my tampon full. I have very bad craps that is sometimes very hard to sit walk or even sleep. At times at least 30 minutes went by sents I changed the last one it is full again and if I do not change it by that time it is running down my legs. So is this really normal?

  • I don't see this as normal. Are you having larger clots? Is the blood bright red or tinged brownish? This is just your period? Did you have a baby? And for how long? Are you weak? I just think you should go in.

  • Ok you need a H&H and an ultrasound-- and if you are really bleeding that much I"d go to the Er-- and would not leave until I got those 2 things at minimum

  • There is no call doctor there is another doctor standing in for my regular doctor. I really can not stand him he gives me the creeps. I did go to the hospital or the ER got kicked out of there for screaming at the doctors who said this was normal and I thought he might be right and I was crazy. Large red blood clots that looks like runny snot. I guess this is my period..I do not know. Have not gave birth to any kid lately. Plus sometimes weak and dizzy. Hemorrahaging...I do not know...I am just bleeding like crazy.

  • It does sound like your hemorrahaging................get to another hospital ASAP!
    My mom donated too much blood at a blood bank (their fault, not hers) and she almost died.
    Please go to another hospital if you have one nearby. If you pass out, tell hubby to call 911 immediately!

  • I have a hard time believing that a doctor would say it is normal if it is as bad as you describe and I'm honestly surprised you are still conscience or alive even after losing that much blood. Nevertheless, you need to to be seen immediately.
