I have 3 children and my periods have always been regular until a couple of months ago. Now I bleed for 7-9 days, stop for a day or two and then it starts up again like a vicious cycle. I have had quite a bit of abdominal pain over the past two days and thought it might be possible that i'm miscarrying, but I done a pregnancy test and it was negative. I can't take the pill (allergic to provera). Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do?

Messed Up Periods
I can feel your pain 100% as I too am going through this same ordeal. Only I have been like this for 2 years and now they have decided that I need a cat scan to see if I have fibroids or endometriosis.
My symptoms are bloated to the point I feel like I am 8 months pregnant, tender abdoman, pain in the entire stomach area, nausea and at times I even vomit.
I wish you the best and hope you can get it taken care of soon......I have taken birth control to regulate and estrogen to make me have periods and still no normal periods.

good luck

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with hormonal imbalance.Just take mefenemic acid and tranexamic acid to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
