Why I am experiencing painful periods along with passing 2 big white tissues which was smooth and lumpy ?

I recently had a period and I am on the pill, but this one was incredibly painful, I don t usually have painful periods and I noticed passing tissue which was clear/white coloured the size of my palm and a few milimetres thick. It was smooth on one side and lumpy on the other. I passed 2 of these in a short space of time and my period is also alot heavier than normal. What could this be? Do I need to get it checked out?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic
It appears to me as if you have had a problem called membranous dysmenorrhea (Pain during periods). It may not ever happen again. It does not have long-term effects. Membranous dysmenorrhea is a severe form of spasmodic dysmenorrhea and is associated with the passage of membranous casts in the flow. Its a rare condition sometimes seen in women on oral contraceptives/depot. You should have nutritious diet, regular exercise, correction of constipation if any. Simple analgesics like aspirin or Buscopan, hormonal contraceptives, prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors like mefanamic acid, danazol etc. may help. Take care.

Good evening. I m kindly asking if anyone can help to state what my problem is as it relates to my menstruation. The first time I got my period was at the age of 12. I m 20 years old currently & I ve been experiencing irregular bleeding for the last 5 years. My period normally last either 4 weeks or over one month. As of right now, I m close to 2 months and I m still bleeding heavy like it just started. Along with that, I pass big amount of clots almost everyday. I know menstruation is a norm for females but my main concern is why do I bleed so much & for so long? Please, any information will be really appreciated as I am worried about my health. Thank you in advance.

Hello, I am 8 days delayed. I was expecting my period on july 27 - July 31. Last month, i have experienced continous sickness within a week like diarhea, head ache, lower body numbness/unexplainable pain (from hips down), back pain for 2 days. I am confuse. I was not able to take my regular supliments for my hormone, & some vitamins last month. I took some synthetic meds to bear the pain which is new to my system. Coz I dont take these usually as much as possible. Can it be a reason why I got delayed? I am feeling weary & stress now. In addition, I am sexually active & had unprotected intercourse on the 7th day after my period. (Period:june 27, July 3: intercourse). i actually dont want a baby. Can pregnancy occur? :-(

Hello, I am 37 years old in okay health. I have a 6.2cm fibroid and several small ones with the largest being 1.9cm. I also have RH- blood. At my last appointment about the fibroids, I said I didn t want kids, so the gyno suggested danazol, myomectomy or hysterectomy. I asked for a few weeks to research and decide. My other half and I have decided to have a baby. Is it likely that we won t be able to conceive or carry to term?
