Period question...I need answers!!

Ok so I had my daughter 8 months ago and my periods have been all out of whack meaning sometimes I have one and sometimes I do sometimes they are heavy and sometimes they are light but anyway I started my period today. I put a tampon in like I always do and about 20 minutes later blood started gushing out for a few seconds. Not sure if this is normal or not so I kinda disregarded it as a freak thing and went on with my day. Then after I got home from work I changed the tampon and the same thing happened but this time it was immediate...not really sure what is going on. Anyone have any ideas on what could cause this because I am kinda freaked out by it!

  • Are you on any type of birth control? I have the Paragard IUD & that happens to me sometimes. If you're freaked, call you OB/GYN tomorrow.

  • Is it the same colour as your usual menstrual blood?
