I had that happen on a regular basis before I went on the pill. I could be anywhere from 2 weeks early to 2 weeks late, and if it were early I’d barely get anything for a couple days, and then if it were late it was like the mother of hell now resided in my uterus to make me nauseous, dizzy, crampy, and I went through boxes of pads and tampons. It sucked. It also led to me going on the pill, which now makes my monthlies much, much happier.

MrsSnapdragon:  Realistically- it’s possible you were pregnant and had an early miscarriage- which usually produces a heavier, more painful period.

But I will also say that I skipped a period the month before our wedding– I ended up getting it the morning after our wedding, and it was a bit heavier than normal- though I didn’t have all of the other things you listed.

MrsSnapdragon:  yes, that happens to me and it’s awful.

tMI TMI TMI ( fair warning!)  If you are going through a super tampon and an overnight pad together within an hour, you need to see the dr. I burst several cysts that hurt like crazy and made me vomit, much bleeding, etc. if you think you have cysts or it felt like birthing cramps and then clumps came out, it could be a cyst that burst.

dr gave my Lysteda for excessive bleeding and it helps ( just took one actually).

Tinatiny1:  MrsSnapdragon:  That is what I had about 5-6 years ago, a cyst had burst. I had my period a couple weeks before it, then woke up one morning in a lot of pain and just felt off. Even trying to sleep at night was hard cos it felt like my ovaries were just grinding and was uncomfortable. The following morning, I woke up and had started bleeding… and thought it maybe was a miscarriage (worst case scenario), but knew that I had just gotten my period so who knows. I went to work and could barely sit, and had soaked through a couple thick pads by lunch, which freaked me out. hat night, I went bowling with a friend and couldn’t even lift the ball (at the time I was in a weekly league, so it was odd).

I went in to the doctor the next day, and they scheduled an ultrasound to see what was going on. Well, that was 2 days later and of course nothing popped up – but that is my guess for a cyst and not a miscarriage. However, my period has been weird ever since and was clockwork before that.
