I started my period at 9 years old and my periods have always been heavy, when I was about 12-13 my gynecologist recommend birth control to lesson my symptoms and slow down my period. It would work for a few months then I would bleed for about 2 months straight not very heavy but mild. It got to the point where they had to raise the dose up 3 times. Lately and the past few months I've been experiencing cramps(very Seaver) even when I'm not supposed to be on my period or start it it's been happing for a few months now and I also bleed on and off even though I am taking my pill like I am supposed to, I haven't been bleeding heavy lately well at least 2 months ago I wasn't. The cramps have seemed to become more and more painful and now the past 4 days I have been bleeding like no tomorrow the first day it was heavy but it was like normal it gradually increased the pace coming faster and faster. I have a history of endometriosis my mothe and mom both had to have hiserectomys (or however it's spelled) before the age of 30. And I have had complications just like them. But now I am having what the had right before they had there histerectomy, I know they won't do that to a 16 year old and I do not want them to I do want children in my far future but with the pain I'm experiencing it scared me because this morning I went to take a shower around 11:45 and I had changed my pad earlier that morning around 9:30-10:0 Ish and my pad was almost half way soaked. I feel very weak and tired I don't want to mave or do anything but I'm not around my mom so I've been actin like this isn't hurting me (if you knew my dad you would understand) should I go to the doctor or the hospital I have no idea what to do I just want this pain and weakness to go awayView Thread
