Hi, this didn’t just happen but I wanted to ask if anyone had experienced anything like this, because it was really horrible and strange.
Do periods seem to “build up” when you’re late? I guess it’s kind of impossible for that to happen, but I was 2 weeks late, and I just felt really sick. I felt nauseous/dizzy, felt feverish and like I wanted to throw up. It was the worst. We were wondering if I was pregnant, but we were traveling with family which was keeping us running around constantly and we were too busy to do a covert test. After a few days, I finally got my period, and it was like nothing I’ve had since. Like it was soaking through super absorbant tampons and going through my underwear in an hour or less, and it was pretty miserable and I still felt sick.
I’m just wondering if that’s normal for some people, because nothing like that had happened to me before or since. I’m fine now. But it sure was horrible at the time.

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).

Wow, good to know I’m not the only one. I’ll keep on mind to see a dr if I see something like that again just in case.

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.
