Hello! This is my first post here so i hope I am doing this right! I am really freaking out about my period right now and I am hoping for some advice, here is some info about me: I am 22f, I am 119 lbs, I am not on any pill, I am a virgin, and I get my period once a month for normally 3-5 days.
3 or 4 days before my period I started spotting some blood, some days it was a good amount an others it was little to none, which freaked me out because that has never happened before. Then I got my period, my period is usually pretty medium/light and lasts 3 days and slowly stops from day 4-6. well this time around I got my period and It was consistent for 5 whole days, with a fair amount of blood clots (i get them normally but it just felt like more this time.) then when i thought my period was finally over i started spotting again! lots of brown blood and a lot of blood clots when I wipe.
so to some up: 4 days of pre period spotting, 5 days of a consistant period flow and cramps each day, and 3 days of post period spotting and possibly more (it looks like its calming down now but who knows)
I have never had spotting before or after a period before so this really scared me. plus there seemed to be more blood clots than normal (they werent super big but it was just an observation) I know this is irrational but my brain keeps going straight to cancer and I can’t focus on anything else.
I’ll admit I’ve been EXTREMELY stressed out this past month with college and family drama, I’ve been very inactive and my body clock is screwed up, I’ve been oversleeping and my eating habits aren’t great (I will eat at weird times and eat either very little or too much). I’m in my last semester so I’m kinda going through I lot which is why I’m such a mess.
The thing is I’ve kinda been like this for months now and I’ve never had period issues like I did this month. So I’m not sure why this month is different?
ALSO: I had my firs gyno visit back in December. So felt around and did a Pap smear and never said anything afterwards so I don’t think anything is abnormal. I texted my GP who’s also a gyno and she said it could be due to stress and to see how it goes next month but she thinks it’s nothing.
The thing is waiting a month is terrifyingly me, I keep freaking out it’s some sort of cancer and I need to concentrate on school! Has anyone gone through this or have any advice? Should I just calm down? I don’t know what to do!
IM SORRY THIS IS SO LONG IF YOU READ THIS THANK YOU SO MUCH ❤️
