Why would I have 3 periods in one month?
I am 4'11''. I weigh 158 and since Christmas, have gone down from 185 to 158. No diet, just not eating anymore junk food or fast foods. Last pap test was in 2007. I do not sleep well. My periods are usually normal. Ya I am always thirsty and drink a ton of water. Ya I am sexually active, last time was in march. I do have epilepsy and take lamictal and dialantin infitabs, 1mg, folic acid and a multi vitamin.
I started it regular dilantin 15 yrs ago and the infatabs 6 months ago. My neurologist is trying to ween me off of it so I take 25 mg. less each month. I now take 100mg. a day
1. How long has this been happening to you (the three periods in one month). Did it just happen in the last month, or is this a pattern. I know you said your periods were usually normal, but when was that?
2. Have you taken a pregnancy test since March?
No I haven't taken a pregnancy test. It has been just this month. Last normal period was March.
I went to the er and they said dont feel like fibroids. They also put me on a birth control to lessen or stop the bleeding. But I questioned this because my dialatin can make it a lot less effective. But the er doctor told me to go see a reg dr during the week. I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative.
