I am a 49 year old woman with menopause symptoms. I bled heavily

This answer was rated:

I am a 49 year old woman with menopause symptoms. I bled heavily for over 30 days in July then stopped for 2 weeks. My period has started again and is now even heavier and I am having significant, constant pain. I have been soaking through pads every hour for two days....soaking through and leaking onto clothes. I have to get up every hour or so at night to change pads and clothes. I feel light headed and weak. I can't get to my regular doctor for about a week. I am concerned about the blood loss and I'm not sure if I should seek immediate help or if it is okay to wait.

Hello and thank you for the question.

I am Dr. Sohaib, a practicing Internal Medicine Specialist and i will do my best to help you today.

The severity of bleeding you have mentioned is dangerously high. And now you have become symptomatic as well as a result of anemia due to severe chronic blood loss.

I will suggest you to go to ER and have an urgent evaluation done as well as a CBC count to look for severity of anemia, as you might require oral/injectable iron and/or a blood transfusion (depending upon the severity of anemia).

Waiting for another week would be against standard medical guidelines here.

Do not wait and get immediate help.
