I need some advice...whether or not I need to see a dr. about my period problem.

Sorry, I know this is gross but I need some advice. I don't have anyone else I can ask about this. I'd appreciate any input. I am bleeding VERY hard along with really large clots. I am using a super plus tampon and maxi pad and having to change them hourly and still bleeding through. Do I need to see a doctor?

  • Yes you need to see a doctor.  That sounds exactly like me when I had my fibroids.  You need drugs (or in the worst case surgery) to stop the bleeding or you will get severely anemic.

  • If this lasts more than a few hours, you should contact your doctor.

  • Yes. If you soak a pad or tampon an hour and/or have large clotting, it's time to see a doctor.
