I just got my period yesterday and I'm normally a heavy bleeder but this is really heavy. It wakes me up and I feel like I'm passing big chunks of tissue, but when I look at the pad, there's not a lot, just a lot of blood, same as well when I'm on the toilet. It kept me up. I'm wearing two pads and I've been changing them about every 2-4 hours for the past 10 hours. It also doesn't have the usual metallic smell. It smells more like poop or maybe something dying? I don't have cramps or anything like that, just dizzy, fatigued and exhausted. Is there something wrong?
I went to the hospital during the week twice. They did a sono and everything and apparently I'm fine. But I'm cleaning myself out of the progesterone the hospital gave me the first time. I lost so much blood and was so dizzy I had to take an ambulance. And in two weeks, I'm then going to go for blood work so they can check my hormone levels but it seems it's just my period. Thank you for your insights everyone!
