I'm not sure where to post this... I'm starting to get a little concerned about my period.
Although... I don't have any insurance right now, and we had a falling out with my family doctor (can you say insurance fraud?
) so I don't know what I'll do if I need to see a professional.
Anyhow - I've been on domperidone to increase milk supply for the last 2 years. I finally started weaning myself off of it a few months ago. I haven't had a real period (except for some PP bleeding) since before pregnancy.
So, now I've been having a period for around the last month. It is very stop and start. The problem is, when it starts, it is REALLY heavy. Tons of clotting - the clots aren't necessarily very big, but there's a LOT of clotting.
So, I'll bleed really heavily for maybe 1-2 days, then it will stop for a day or two (sometimes a few hours, sometimes a few days, it really varies) and the whole thing will start again.
I also have the same funky feeling I had when I was first pregnant - weird taste in my mouth, general feeling of malaise, nausea. I assume this is due to the return of estrogen to my body. ( there is no chance I'm pregnant)
Anyway, I'm just wondering... now that I write all this down, I guess it doesn't sound unusual. I mean, I haven't had a real period for... what... almost 3 years total? Not counting postpartum bleeding.
Anyone have any advice for me, or reassurance that this is normal?
