Quick synopsis: I am on about day 15 or 16 of my period. No cramps, heavy flow. Blood clots the size of the palm of my hand. WWYD?
More background: I began menstruating at age 13 (22 years ago) and was regular from day one. Even after 2 pregnancies and nursing both babies, when AF came back she stuck to her previous schedule of 28 day cycles, 4-5 days of heavy flow, a 24 hour break, and then one or 2 last days of medium to light flow. Horrific cramps all throughout.
Then a year or so ago, things changed. I started having much longer gaps between periods, up to 60 days or so. I also began having a pain in my right side, low down, that knocked me off my feet a couple of times. My ovulation cramping got stronger than ever before.
And now things are just weird! I had a long cycle. Around the middle of March I had a few light spotty days, then a break, and then the floodgates unleashed. In the last week, I have stood up several times to feel my Diva Cup give way. Three times I have had a clot that took up the whole cup. One looked so bad I dumped it in the bathtub and spread it out with Q-tips. It was big enough to literally cover the palm of my hand! (Not that I tried it for real haha)
I don't have insurance or much money so I go to a local free clinic but they don't do much more than paps. They already told me a couple months back when I mentioned the pain that I should go to the ER if the pain happens again. The gyn said it sounded like an ovarian cyst.
Oh, and, no I'm not having a miscarriage. Havne't had sex in years.
