Usually they are light, heavy, and then gone and last 5-7 days. I have never been sexually active.

Thank you for the information!

It sounds like you may have a condition called gastritis. This is simply an inflammation of your stomach lining. I suggest that you take over-the-counter Prilosec once a day for 14 days. If this does not relieve your symptoms then you should see your doctor to be tested for H. Pylori. This is a bacteria that can live in your stomach and cause gastritis or ulcers. It can be treated with antibiotics.

If your symptoms worsen during the 2 weeks, you develop vomiting, fevers or pain then you need to see your doctor sooner.

Here is more information:

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
