Monthy Cycle, age, weight concerns........read more please

Hi I am new here. I am a 31 year old mother of 3. I am 100 + over weight since the birth of my second child. Always under weight until then. I had not had a monthly cycle since Feb. 2008. The last time I went to the doctor was in August. The weight is the cause of me not having my cycle, the doc told me this. I weigh more now. I started Monday night. At first it was dark blood, now it is bright red. I have seen the dark before, but not the bright red I am seeing now. I am flooding, which I have not done before either. The cramps are bad, though I have had worse. Small clots, though they have been bigger. I had my tubes tied in 2005 after the birth of #3. My concerns are the heavy, bright bleeding. Should I worry and does this seem like a cycle? I have already called my doc, but he won't be in until Monday. Thanks for any input and advice and Happy New Years!

  • If you havn't had a period in a long time and it is now real heavy and different, I think you're just making up for lost time. The first blood will be dark and then heavy. But if it persists too long, I'd see the doc.
