  • Since it is unusual for you I'd recommend calling your gyn. If it is an emergency she will tell you what to do. If it isn't an emergency she can check you out. In fact, if it were me, I'd go to an urgent care clinic just for the peace of mind. I hope all is well.

  • did you have a baby?? I breastfeed my daughter so I didn't get my period until she was 5 months old and it was light for a day then so heavy it was crazy, I thought I was gonna die but it was just because it had been so long (a year and a half) since I had my period

  • Sometimes women are having a miscarriage and mistake it for a period. In will have the period and never knew you were even pregnant.

    Consult your OB/GYN if you are still concerned.

  • This is how my problem started. Call your doctor. If it continue's in the months to come you may have menorrhagia. Which is heavy mentral bleeding. So other symtoms are fatigue, anemia, and horrible cramping. Call your doctor and research it on your own. I use WebMD and been researching herbal alternatives two I have found are Natural Health Practice and herbs forever inc. both on the internet. I haven't tried there products yet since I just found out yesterday. The specialist I went to thinks I should have a Hysterectomy, well I don't. Follow your gut, go to the doctor and do the reaserch.
