Heavy menstrual flow with clotting, history of atypical parkinson's, dystonia, urinary retention-possible neurogenic bladder, current herniated disc. Any remedies ?

I have heavy menstrual flow with clotting -this has been addressed with Dr previously- when using a tampon , during the heaviest flow, I will fill a super-plus tampon in 20-30 minutes if during this time I use a pad instead, little if anything will show on the pad, however, when i start to urinate, everything flows out, blood, clots, etc -very heavy, just as it is when i use the tampons- almost like it just does not flow out unless I am urinating, not in between- I used to wear pads and never had this happen, but it has done so for my last 4 periods (not sure how many before as I jsut recently went back to pads for other reasons) i will note I also have neurological history (atypical parkinson s, dystonia , urinary retention- possible neurogenic bladder , severe back problems including current herniated disk L5-S1) and I am not sure if this could be related to those things or something totally unrelated I am 38 and aside from the above neuro issues, overall healthy- regular periods Just thought this was a bit odd

Hi rugbrat73, what you have described does appear to be very heavy bleeding and as you are saying that it is only visible when you go to urinate ,it is because the blood gets trapped in the vaginal passage and clots and comes out when you sit to urinate which relaxes the vaginal wall. So bleeding is there irrespective of whether you use tampon or pads. Such heavy bleeding will be detrimental to you and lead to anemia which itself aggrevates this condition. It would be best to visit your gynecologist and get medication for the same and also some iron supplimentaion fro all the blood loss every month. Also get your thyroid hormone levels checked as any derangement in it can also menifest as menorrhagia or heavy periods. This problem needs to be addressed by your gynecologist at the earliest and should not be neglected. Take care!
