Periods Heavy For 2 Days, Medium For 2 Days, Then Light For 1-2 Days

Feb 21, 2014

Please tell me is my period flow normal. I used to get 5-6 day periods, heavy for 2 days, medium for 2 days, then light for 1-2 days until it tapered off and ended. It was this way even when I was on birth control.

For the past few months now, I have been getting 3-4 day periods, where the first day is really just some spotting indicating my period is going to be starting. The second day is my heavy day. The third day is medium light. The 4th day is light. I'm still on birth control. I am 30 years old now.

Also last month, my period color was dark brown and I also had some black colored clotting during my heavy day. I know some blood clots are normal during menstruation, I had them all my life. But this blood clot was black. Again this month on my heavy day, I had black colored clot. It was a dime size clot. Size was not large. Is black color clotting anything to worry about? I do not see red blood these past two periods like I am used to seeing. I am seeing mostly brown and/or black.

And how can I increase my menstrual flow. I am worried that my endometrium lining is thinning and can cause a problem when I do try for children.

Menopause :: Feeling Out Of Sorts - Good Days / Bad Days

For the past year i have had many strange symptoms in varying degrees, good days/bad days, good weeks/bad weeks.

Here is a list of my symptoms

Lack of energy, Extreme tiredness/fatigue,feeling faint (although never fainted),dizzy on and off but always dizzy up to a week before my period,  one very bad period of 4 months vertigo. Jelly legs,shaky inside, feeling weak as though I've had the flu or something but I've not even had a cold this year.Palpitations, feeling detached, feeling like i'm about to loose consciousness (very odd feeling) the feeling you get just as you are about to go to sleep, Brain fog.Sensitive to light, eyes often become bloodshot. Headaches/migraine. Sometimes feel so cold inside & cannot seem to warm up.Periods of insomnia, bladder irritability especially in week before period, episodes of what i now call bladder fizz where bladder so irritable it feels like i have fizzy liquid in my bladder cannot sleep through this sensation sometimes accompanied by the feeling of a red hot needle going up the urethra (would be interested to know if anyone else gets this & any remedies please? A pain I get on either side low down about where pubic hair begins pain seems to radiate to back & sometimes down into the thigh on the side of where the pain begins, doesn't seem to coincide with ovulation & randomly happens (ibuprofen usually takes it off after a couple of hours) Bloating & times of excessive wind.Monthly cyst like spots on jaw line, hair sprouting on chin & upper lip (invested in a home laser scanner) Hair beginning to thin at temples.

Food cravings for something salty & chocolate particularly before period.

I am almost 53 so after reading forums on here have come to the conclusion that its menopause & not some mysterious illness, thought I might have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, just didn't realise there were so many different symptoms of menopause.

Last year I did have very bad night sweats & hot flushes but they have reduced greatly, I take vit 6, eat plenty of fresh fruit/veg/salads, chicken, fish, flax seeds/chia seeds.

I'm so pleased to have found this forum & to find i'm not the only one suffering through this and not going mad, hope this might help someone else.

Am I Pregnant? :: 3 Days Late Light Spotting Period Cramps

My last period was 12/12/2015. I have been using period tracker app since August to track my periods and ovulation. I ovulated on 12/26/2015. My fiance and I dtd on the day I was ovulating as well as a few other times. My period was due 1/9/2016 but I missed it. I am 3 days late. On the day my period was due when I went to the bathroom and wiped there was a tiny pink dot and a tiny brown dot and that was it. In the following two days there was nothing. At the end of day three of my missed period I had a little more spotting but not enough for a tampon and it wasn't enough to worry about staining my pants or underwear. Early morning of what would be the 4th day of my missed period I am period cramps. But when I went to the bathroom there was a couple of stains on my bed pants but no blood clots and it is pink not red. I took some Midol and the cramps are better now but I am so confused on what is going on. Anyone else experience this or can shed some light.

Menstrual Cycle :: On My Periods For 12 Days

I've been on my period for 12 days. I've been on birth control for 4 months now and the previous 2 months my period has come a week early, so I've just keep taking the pills as usual (so the first week of my period I was taking the birth control and the second week were placebo pills). This month it was a week and a half early and I'm still having heavy bleeding and clotting. What could be going on and what can I do?

Menstruation :: Periods Lasting For 11 Days - Getting Missed Also

I've had my first period when I was 12. Ever since I guess, my period length varies but it's always around 7 days. This month, my period has been lasting for 11 days as of today. At first, it was dark brown with light flow. Then it became normal flow but it's still dark brown. Soon, it became like a normal period flow, dark red. Then right now, it's light red, somehow it's watery. It's my first time to experience this and I don't know what's wrong. Last month I had my period (October). The month before that I didn't (September). I don't usually have missed periods, but that wasn't my first time. Anyway, I had my first (protected) sex last August, after I had my period. Although the condom we used was placed in his wallet for 4 months, could that have tampered it? We didn't do it for long since it hurt. I'm giving out too much details but I just want to know what's happening. Am I pregnant? But I had sex like 4 months ago.

Menstruation :: Alternating Light And Heavy Flow During Periods

I usually have a regular period flow but suddenly it has changed. I received my "period" about the due time it was expected to come however it started off as spotting -light bleeding for about 8hours. For the next 18 hours (including overnight) it was as if my normal period had come (medium-heavy flow). Then for the next 18 hours again it returned to very light period. Then for the next 4-5 hours it was normal flow again. However after that for the next 20 hours or so it was just quite light again. However now (4-6 hours) i am pretty sure my period has stopped/ i am experiencing extremely light spotting. I'm currently 17 and I think it may be due to stress but i'm not completely sure..

Also, basically my period has all been cut short to 2-3 days when it usually last 5 days minimum.

Norethisterone For 10 Days Max - What Happens Afterwards?

My 18 year old daughter has been prescribed Norethisterone for prolonged bleeding and pain (possibly endometriosis but not yet diagnosed). The instructions on the pack were to take for a maximum of 10 days at a time. She started them today whilst already bleeding; we are very confused as to what happens after 10 days. She has to stop taking it and presumably then will resume bleeding as this may well be caused by the mini-pill she is on (the name of which escapes me). How long does she have to wait before taking Norethisterone again?
