I am a 21 year old female. I have been having a period since I was 11 and it started off irregular for the first few years, then for about four years my periods have been regular, however for the last year it's been irregular again. Last september I had two weeks of blood clots then a week of a "normal" period. At the end of Feb. this year I started taking Desogen birth control to regulate my periods, I stopped taking it after two weeks, because I didn't like the way I felt while taking it. I've had three periods this year, and I'm currently on my period, which has last for 23 days and still counting, my period is very heavy and shows no sign of stoping. I am constantly changing my pads at least every two hours. I am tired all the time, I feel like there's a knot in my throat , I feel like I'm having heartburn at least once a day for the last week and a half, and I've experienced bad cramping in my back for the last week. I am not nor have I ever been sexually active, I don't know what to do. I currently don't have health insurance so I'm at a lost.
