and due to these you might get cramps and bleeding in clots

i suggest here to 1) check your hormone levels, FSH, LH, Prolactin and TSH
User :   ok
Doctor :  
2) start with OTC antispasmodics to relieve cramps
User :   is this a medicine?
Doctor :  
3) hot water fomentation also helps as it increases blood supply to painful area and flusshes out pain producting chemicals
Doctor :  
yes it is a medicine

it comes in Tablet form

and to be taken 2 times a day after food

4) restart your iron suppliments

as anemia also results in heavy bleed

have you followed what I said?

is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   one thing more... I am here with my fiance and have had some physical interaction as well. Can this also be a cause.

it can however result in post coital bleed if PID or any lesion is present

in the vagina or cervix

i mean to ask in how many days gap do you get your periods once?

ok

then your fertile period when pregnancy chances are maximum will be between 8th to 16th day taking day 1 as first day of bleeding
User :   ook
User :   ok
Doctor :   so any intercourse during this time wil result in pregnancy

is there anything else you would like to ask me?
