Hello, how many days do you have a heavy period each month?
How would you describe the discharge...color, odor, consistency etc?
Thanks for the extra information. I am afraid that this discharge does warrant seeing a doctor or finding a not-for-profit clinic. A yellow or green discharge suggests a bacterial infection which would need an appropriate antibiotic. If not treated then puts you at risk of pelvic inflammatory disease.
With the swollen abdomen then a physical examination or ultrasound scan would be needed to determine whether there was fluid in the abdomen which would shift when moving position, or even a large ovarian cyst which would give a one sided pelvic mass.
The tissue is clotted blood/lining of the uterus and is common in heavy periods however a check of your hemoglobin would be good to exclude anemia due to heavy bleeding.
If there is free fluid in the abdomen then your doctor will detect this will abdominal examination (plus scan in some cases). Your doctor will then want to investigate the cause of the fluid and you may need blood tests to look at liver function, or a scan to look at ovaries.
Once the cause has been identified then the fluid is drawn off with a drain inserted, although it may return depending on the cause.
If the discharge is bacterial infection, then it is easily tested and treated.
