I am 23 yrs old and have been having period problems. I first had no period for 4 months now I've been on my period for 52 days straight now. Non stop heavy bleeding and clotting. Going through a pad an hour sometimes even 2 an hour. Also I gained 20lb in less then a month. What could be wrong with me?

@Klrd,
What's wrong with you (as well as can be determined here by forum inexpert audience) is that you should be making an appointment on an emergency basis with your gynecologist. Don't let your fear or shortage of money or insurance coverage stand in the way.

If a shortage of money is an issue, borrow it from somewhere. This is not something that you should put off.

Go and see a doctor now. You have put it off for too long already.

At the least, you are now very anemic. I went through this, in my case with a bleeding fibroid, and had NO iron stores when it was attended to.

I don't mean that you have that, but some of it is familiar. Get to a doctor very soon.. for a good check up. Preferably a gynecologist.

@ossobuco,
Yes, fibroid was my first thought too.

Definitely, get to a doctor.

@ossobuco,
Also, do not take no for an answer about an immediate appointment. Be insistent on the phone, preferably at an university med center gynecology department.

@Klrd,
Many of those are symptoms of fibroids and cysts...So is the unexplained rapid weight gain. With that much blood loss you are probably also severely anemic.

Don't postpone it, go see your doctor. If you don't have one, go to a walk-in clinic or even Planned Parenthood. Tell your closest friend or parent about your situation so they can help you get yourself to a doctor.

I learned the hard way after postponing going to the doctor until it was life-threatening. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I see we are all in agreement.

Please go see a doctor immediately and then come back and let us know how you are doing.

@Butrflynet,
Yes, to Butryflynet.

On being insistent - I've done that.

I'd consider walking into a gynecology clinic - not just any clinic, but a university med center one - but we don't know your area and circumstances. Anyway, see an m.d. soon.

@Klrd,
You need to see a doctor for you to get an accurate assessment of what you are going through.

Thanks for all your comments. I had scheduled a doctors appt a few weeks ago my apt isn't until Tuesday. So I have tried to find different things it could be. About 7 months ago I had a pap that came back precancerous but they never even gave me a follow up after my biopsy. I do not think it has anything to do with that. But there could be a chance that things have progressed. I do live in a small community that really does not have a great group of doctors so I am going out of town to a specialist that I have heard highly of. So is there anything that it may be that doctors don't test for that maybe I could request to get information about? And thanks again for your comments.

Glad you're seeing a specialist.

@Klrd,
Just to let everyone know I had my doctors apt today. They done blood tests on me and done a few other tests. I won't know any of the results til the middle of next week. And checked my iron level which was very low as I suspected. I have an apt tomorrow also to have an ultra sound done. I'm very glad I decided to go out of town to a great doctor that is very eager to find out what's going on with me. I will keep you all updated when I find out some results.

@Klrd,
I believe that he is a very good doctor. From all the problems I have had in the past other doctors always never wanted to run tests or anything else. When I went to him he talked to me about all my symptoms and had already gotten my past medical records. He done a few tests on me while i was there and scheduled me for more tests and also an ultra sound without me even having to ask him to do all these tests. When I first when into him I had the mind set that I was tired of being pushed away from other doctors and them having no clue what was going on with me. So I was going to go in and tell him all the tests I wanted done but I did not have to do that he automatically started doing it for me. As I am a nursing student and in my last semester of class I do know what to ask for and about. I'm glad that I have finally found a gyno who was actually eager to help and find out what's going on with me

@Klrd,
Sounds like you are off to a good start, Klrd. I hope it turns out to be nothing but a momentary blip in your menstrual cycles.

It is possible that you have developed fibroids or a cyst. If so, it sounds like it has been caught early enough that medications may be able to reduce and possibly eliminate them without any surgery.

Do you need help gathering together a list of iron-rich foods to help you get your iron levels up?

How were your B vitamin levels? Usually when my iron levels are low, so are my B vitamins. I take supplements, but even those don't always keep my levels in what the doctors call "normal" range. In fact, I had some lab work done in October and both my iron and vitamin B levels are again below normal...so there will be a lot of fresh spinach in my near future...

Your new doctor sounds like a gem. I'm glad you found him.
