I have had regular periods 30 days in length for at least 2

Customer Question

I have had regular periods 30 days in length for at least 2 years. TTC and I am currently on day 20 of my cycle and I have bleeding that seems to be about as heavy as my normal cycle. Started with bright pink/ transporting yesterday and cramping. Is this my normal period or something else?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: No real pain, just normal lower back menstrual cramps. I have had a 30 day cycle since I was 14 (36 now). I can usually time a watch by my cycle. I did get what seemed like my regular period with my 2 year old for the 1st 2 months.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, I haven't had any problems medically.

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
Do you have any other symptom? or past illness?
Did you have any test?

How old are you?
Did you consult doctor or take any measure?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No illness or pain, just some minor cramping and diarrhea. Normal PMS symptoms. I am 36 and have conceived very easily 2 times before. Took a pregnancy test after a light but regular period last month and it was negative. I have had regular unprotected sex with my husband. No other partners (ever) for either of us, so I don't believe it is an STD.

Thank you for the information,
There can be different possibilities for the continued bleeding.
There can be hormonal abnormalities from ovary or other endocrine glands.
Uterine changes can cause it.
Infection not necessarily STD, pelvic congestion can be other factors.
A few tests like blood hormone levels, blood count, ultrasound would be helpful.
I am sorry for your insurance problem.

You can take an examination in an urgent care or free clinic.

Prolonged bleeding can lead to development of anemia.
I hope this information helps.
