If your periods are that painful and THAT heavy, I would DEFINTELY pay a visit to your OBGYN. The sooner the better. From your post it seems like this sort of period is a somewhat new development and I’d go just for peace of mind.

Sorry you’re going through this! I had miserable periods.  I had trigger point injections, 1x/month for 5 months. It made a huge difference for me.

@angeliquew:  please go to the doctor. I know its scary and it may feel intrusive, but it will help you and see what is really going on. And hopefully they can give you adequate treatment.

@angeliquew:  

 i just spent 11 months every day in pain. they docs believed it to be endo ( the opp showed it was not). please go get looked at! i had the shot and it made everything worse + hair loss. But see what your doc says and try it. If this does not settle start talking endo or other things that are the issue. It took me 11 months to find out all my organs were stuck together ! with my ovary on a main blood vessel making periods painful. Don’t let docs push you around like they did me!  I say this out of love as pain like this can be helped but is so often over looked!

Not an O&G doc but this looks like a decidual cast, which can be part of a ‘normal’ spectrum of periods. You sound like you are really suffering with your periods though and I would want to know if one of my patients was suffering as you are as there are exams and tests we can do to see if there is an underlying cause. Most menstrual problems can be managed, sometimes it does take a while to find the right treatment, but I would be very hopeful that your doctor will be able to help.

@angeliquew: I’m the same way! Trigger point injections are primarily focused on relaxing the surrounding muscle by inhibiting excessive contractions. I would look for someone who specializes in regenerative medicine.

I’m so sorry you have to deal with this, but I know exactly what you are going through. I was having super painful periods and passing painful clots almost as big as the palm of my hand. I shed a decidual cast once of my uterus, too and it scared the crap out of me. After 9 months of heavy bleeding and clots, a blood transfusion, and 3 doctors later, I’m on a birth control pill that stopped it. Apparently none of them knew what was causing it and 1 doc even said it was completely normal.

@angeliquew:  I know, I still want to know the root. I’ve had biopsies, ultrasounds, you name it and they can’t pinpoint it. They think, because I’m a slightly overweight it could be PCOS, but I have no other markers and only 2 enlarged follicles on my  ovaries. Each pill is different for each person and I’ve probably been on 5-6 different pills, but the ones I take now, dasetta 1/35, works great with my body, I skip the last week/period week as directed by my doc and no side effects and no weight gain. But everyone is different.
