Question: exreme bleeding

 Lorena_vanorden - Sun Feb 12, 2006 1:06 am

I am a 20 year old female, I have a 15 month old daughter, I am currently taking Phenteramine for weight loss I have been taking it for 4 months. When I was 15I had a cyst frozen from my cervix. Other than that I am in perfect health.
My problem is that 6 days ago I thought I got my period, but the bleeding was very heavy, I can put in a tampon and a pad and be soaked through in an hour or less, I wake up soaked in blood, and when i stand the blood runs like a water faucet, and I am not exaggerating.The blood also had what look like clumps of tissue and boogers in it, and I have servers cramps and nausea, I went to the ER 2 days after it started, and they told me that they had no idea what is wrong with me, but it should let up in a couple days, but it has only gotten worse, I went to my doctor and he made me an appointment with an OBGYN for Monday and gave me a prescription for Vicodin, but even that doesn;t help, I am still in horrible pain, and I don't know if I shouyld go back to the ER tonight. I am so tired I had to come stay with my mom, because I can't even keep myself awake to watch mu dughter, please help me..

You are probably tired because of the blood loss. You should go back to the ER and ask for a transvaginal ultra sound to determine if you are possibly having a miscarriage. The cause of this bleeding needs to be determined so that you can be treated and stop the blood loss.
