I am 33 yrs and have always been regular on my cycles, they usually last 3 to 4 days no longer. this period that I am having now has lasted 8 days very heavy bleeding, with clotts, I've been dizzy...and I was 2 weeks late starting, which I am never late either.....I would like to know if I need to see someone.
Thank you for your help.

It is very normal for women to occasionally have abnormal cycles, including missed periods, heavy bleeding and clotting. If it continues over several months you should see a doctor because ongoing heavy bleeding could signal some hormonal problem and could lead to anemia, but when they just occur once or twice, there is no urgent concern.
