Question: irregular bleeding, pelvic pain, lower back pain

 toggle2404 - Mon Jan 05, 2009 9:30 pm

Hi, ive had quite a few ongoing problems the past month. It first started 2 days after finishing my 5day period which is normal and regular when i started bleeding again and have now been for 3weeks on and off, heavy and light and i noticed the blood was not the usual period blood, i then started to have really bad stomach and pelvis cramps which wud last anything from 5mins-1hr and sometimes got really intense. The following day i cudnt move cos my lower back was agony. Today (5days later) the previous symptoms seem to have stopped but i just had a dizzy spell and was sick with contained a small amount of blood??? Please help as i do not have a doctor

User avatar Hello,
Sometimes it is just hormonal fluctuation that messes with your periods like this; other times it is a clue to infection or endometriosis. You could also have a urinary tract infection that can sometimes cause cramping and pain as well as back pain. All I can do is suggest that you see a health care provider if things do not calm down on their own soon.

Best wishes.
