I have been constantly (maybe with a break of not even 24 hours here and there) bleeding from my vagina. I have bleeding for 2.5 to 3 months. I am 26 years old, have 3 children (8,3,1) and am now in a lot of pain.
I was put onto Primolut N on Friday (1 tablet 3x daily) I have developed almost crippling pain in my knees, upper legs, hips, stomach and lower back. but the worst pain is in my knees and upper legs.
I cant not get a gyno appointment until July 24th 2012, is there anything you could tell me??? I am due to have a ultrasound this friday so I hope it will shed some light....... I am so tired and feel as though I am just going to bleed out and die before I even get to see the gyno or something is done.
I have stopped taking the Primolut N as this is the first time I have felt like this and it has only been whilst on Primolut N.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the symptoms that you describe without examining you. Consider visiting an Urgent care center or Emergency room for further evaluation at the earliest if the symptoms are worsening. Stop taking the prescribed pills if the symptoms have got worse and report to your treating gynecologist for urgent follow-up evaluation. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the bleeding and your symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
