Is this abnormal period?

Edited , 2 users are following.

I am in my mid 30's . In my younger days my period is usually normal and last a week. I am not married yet or not pregnant. Now a days for the past few months especially first 3 days i realize that my periods are now heavier. Especially when i have periods, can feel so much pressure and i can feel blood oozing out. i get headaches, first few days i have clots. During this time i feel weak. last month & the previous month when at home i felt faint and blood dripped onto my leg but luckily i was near a table. during those times after blood dripped i felt confuse .

Is it normal to feel this way.

    Hi Stephanie

    The real question is whether this is normal for you, and you've already answered that: No, it isn't. It is a change from how all your periods have been before now. If I were you, i'd go see my gynecologist.

      I went to see a doctor before I was told nothing but experience heavy flow again last month that I hate standing up. My pad was full of blood. had to wear another pad that's big. Felt faint when I was standing up as well but luckily it went away.

      Do you have a gynecologist you can call? If not, call your regular doctor. This is a change & you need some help. Also, you may have to double up on pads and tampons, and practice standing up slowly so that it is a habit when your period comes. If you fall and hit your head, everything will be much worse.

      i know that no one wants to go to doctor's offices right now, but you should at least call them. If they want you to go in, ask if anyone on staff has had the virus. Chances are that the answer is no. Wear a mask, or double up & wear 2 masks.

      I don't have a gynae I can call. I felt I had to double up on pads. That's true. I guess I have to practice slowly standing up. Not use to this. But yup went I had heavy flow can just feel so much pressure. When standing I felt light headed. I wish i don't have to go through this.
