Irregular menstrual cycle

I am on the shot, which usually gives me no periods. Last week I started for the first time since July. It is really disgustingly heavy. If i stand up I can feel it running out. If I cough the same thing. I also tried using tampons but they hurt soo bad all of the sudden. I havent had intercourse in a long time so I thought maybe that could be why? (like 2 years) I have also had the worse cramps EVER. The other night they woke me up and they felt like contractions, if I would have had sex in the past 9 months I Would have thought I was in labor. Every 5 minutes they hurt so bad to where I was in A LOT of pain thinking about going to the ER. I thought maybe it was because my body is getting rid of everything at once since the shot stops my periods. But Im not sure. Should I go to the DR. Or does anyone why is this happening? Sorry Im anon, I just find it gross and wasnt sure how appropriate this was..

  • As we get older, our hormones change. Sometimes this change will effect your birth may no longer be compatible with it. talk to your doctor and see if they recommend changing.

  • go to the dr. that sounds awful! if you are not having sex regularly, you may want to consider going off of the synthetic hormones. give your body a break. i hate the commercial that says there is no medical reason for having a period! that is just wrong!
    i truly wish you the best of health!
