Question: Extreme cramps and over heavy bleeding


 Mickeysdesired - Thu Sep 15, 2005 2:56 pm

During my period, I have to stay home from school sometimes two or three days because my cramps are so extreme I can't walk without crying in pain, and medication sometimes help, as in Extra Strength Midol, and IB Profin.

That, and I have to change a super tampon almost every 45 minutes or faster.

Help? I'm hoping to find medication, or something. I"m tired of living in agony. It just doesn't seem normal.

User avatar You should see the gynecologist and explain your symptoms to him, you may have endometrosis. Such a heavy flo is not normal. You may be prescribed birth control pills, even if you arent sexualyl active, they will help your cramps and regulate your period.
