Hello, I'm 17 years old and I've had blood clots and heavy bleeding for as long as I can remember. When I'm on my period, the clots are about the size of a quarter, and I only have clots. I've never had a period with just liquid blood, it's only been clots. I've been to the gynecologist and I had blood tests done for a endometriosis, anemia, and about three other issues. Thankfully, all of the tests have come out negative, and they put me on birth control since last year. The pills have lightened my bleeding, but I'm just wondering if this is a type of disorder, and if I might start clotting again if I stop taking the pills.View Thread
First off, thank you for your help. When I went to the gynecologist, I originally went to get a pap smear because my mom thought it might be endo too. I didn't get a pap smear, because I'm only 17 and I'm a virgin. She didn't mention laproscopic surgery at all. Can you tell me a few GI contidions that occur during menstruation? Thanks alot!

When I'm on my period, I have a sharp pain in my butt/rectum that lasts for about 20 seconds. The pain will either be random, when I have gas, or when I'm pooping. Sometimes when I'm pooping the pain wll be so intense and unbearable that I have to stop trying to use the bathroom. And when it happen randomly or when I have gas, I'm close to being in the fetal positon. I've been to the gynecologist because I had blood clots during my period and they tested me for endometriosis, anemia, and three other things. Happily, the results turned out negative, and they put me on birth conrtol to control the blood clots. That stopped the clotting and the random pain, but I'm still in pain when I'm pooping and I don't know what it is.This pain only happens when I'm on my period. Please help me, I want to know if there's any way to stop the pain. I want to poop in peace!!View Thread
