Miscarriage or Crazy Insane period? Serious TMI

I think you should call the doctor.

I had a time where I had severe cramping and large chunks of tissue (pretty painful) coming out of my vagina. I would’ve sworn I was having a miscarriage but I wasn’t. It was figured out to be hormonal problems that were causing my uterus to shed tissue… it really is very traumatizing to be showering and be in so much pain and then having a big chunk of tissue coming out of your vagina…

Also before that I had been bleeding on and off for over a month. It started as a very heavy period but the bleeding only died down – it never actually stopped. 

The doctor ended up experimenting with birth control and that ended up fixing this all up, but it did take months to figure out what was happening and how to stop it so the sooner the better!

i would call the doctor now, regardless of what is going on! i don’t think that much blood loss is normal and this is coming from someone with insanely heavy periods. i think it would be worthwhile to get checked out now just in case. you can’t possibly function normally while this is going on! better to be safe than sorry.

@Starling13:  I would probably call the doctor on that one.  I know people who have crazy intense periods like that but if this isn’t normal for you I think you should get checked out.  I wouldn’t think that a miscarriage this early would be this bad either.

@Starling13:  I remember that I was the same way too initially… so when this happened I was so confused about what was going on because it had never happened like that before. I waited far too long thinking that somehow my body would just go back to its normal thing… but it never would’ve if I hadn’t gone into the doctor repeatedly.

@Starling13:  I had a fairly heavy period a week ago and called my ObGyn friend to ask at what point I needed to worry. He said if I was saturating a pad fully in less than an hour for more than 3 hours, I needed to go in. Also, if you’re feeling light headed, nausiated, or fatigued because you might have anemia. The clots are also pretty concerning. So all in all, I’d go in if I were you.

That much blood loss sounds serious!  Call the doctor and go in – but have someone else drive you there!

I think this is up to you as to whether or not you would want to know if you were miscarrying.  If you want to know, call the Dr.  But if you’d rather go on thinking it’s your period (which is sometimes emotionally easier for people), then keep monitoring it and keep your feet up.

I’d at least call your doctor (or a nurse line if you have one through your health insurance)… That way you at least can get a recommendation from them and know when to go into the doctors office if necessary.

@Starling13:  I’m sorry you are going through this- it is so bizarre? I hope your doctor can figure out what’s going on, and quickly!

Go to the hospital now, that much blood loss isn’t normal. I know a girl who had the same thing happen and she almost died from loss of blood.
