Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

Inter-menstrual bleeding should not be taken lightly. You have to consult a gynecologist who will have do a speculum examination of the cervix to rule out cervicitis, cervical erosion etc., PAP smear test to exclude cervical malignancy, Ultrasound examination to exclude endometrial polyp and accordingly treat you depending for the cause.

Do not delay, consult a gynecologist immediately.

1. Hi, my name is Eunice, i am 49years old. My height is 5 feet 9, I weigh 209 lbs. I don t take any meds whatsoever, I am a vegetarian, I fall off the ban wagon now and then and would eat only fish at times. My periods usually last 3 days. Heaviest is on the 2nd day. Recently i have been experiencing heavy blot clots in my period on the 2nd day. Is that something for me to be alarmed about? The last time I had a pap-smear was about 8 years ago. 2. Lately after eating ice-cream or drinking ice water, or basically any thing cold, I would get tightness in the chest and my back [between my shoulder blades], and my brain seem to freeze, making it difficult to breath and focus. This happens at night before I go to bed, so I would sit up in bed till the tightness goes away. Last 3 days I had another attack so I put some cayenne pepper in water and drank it. After few minutes, my pain went away and i had a wonderful sleep. What do you think may be the cause and how can I prevent it? 3. My friend has fluid in his lungs. What my cause this, and how does one prevent it from happening again?
