Hi there im 28 and have 4 children. My periods were regular 25-27 days monthly. I was due my period on the 19th of october and it didnt turn up i did a pregnancy test 2 days after it was due and it was negative. I then started the period on the 26th of october usually it last for 4-5 days with 3 days of heaviness then tapers down to brown /light for the last days. Im still bleeding and its 17 days since i started now its not once been as heavy it ususlly is and ive had no blood clots which i always do every period. I rang my dr. And he gave me antibiotics incase i had an infection . They didnt do nothing atall. So i then rang again monday the dr then prescribed me norethisterone to stop the bleeding . And said if it didnt stop i would need a scan . Well its day 3 of the norethisterone and im still bleeding. The bleeding has stayed the same the whole 17 days it goes from red one day to brown the next. I have had pain in my lower right back and over my ovary on a good few occasions and pain in my upper right thigh. The bleeding itself is not heavy and i do not fill even 1 pad a day there is a small amount (more when wiping) . Im totally and utterly terrorfied to be honest . I suffer severe health anxiety as it is so u can imagine my mind is now in overdrive with ovarian cancer or womb cancer . I had a clear smear test in march this year and to be called back in 3 years. All i have done for the past few days is cry my heart out im terrorfied its some kind of cancer and that im going to leave my beautiful children even typing that has brought tears to my eyea. Im so scared of having an ultrasound scan as im certain they will tell me its cancer . My partner is not atall supportive towards me and think im mad due to me thinking ive had all different types of deadly illnesses. My health anxiety started when my dad died suddenly and unexpectedly on december 1st last year. Im a very anxious person and this is making me so much worser i cant concentrate , im very bad tempered , keep bursing into tears . Im just wondering if anyone has had this?? If so what caused it ?? Do i need to be worried or am i being a total imbecile? Im so sorry about this post . I just cannot relax and just want to know what i could be dealing with . I will add i had a spell in my teenage years when i had to have 3 lots of ovarian cysts drained twice when i was 14 and another lot drained when i was 15 . At my ultrasound when i had my last baby i was told i had a fibroid and cyst on my ovary but that is coming up 2 years now .Thank u advance
