Customer Question
I've had 3 periods...

I've had 3 periods in the last 3 weeks along with mirgraines and tiredness, is this something I should just wait and see my OBGYN for or should I be looked at by the ER?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

Cramping each time and pain from the headache. I hadn't had one in a year after my nexplanon was put in but about 3 weeks ago I started to have them and they'll be super heavy for the first couple of hours then slow down to normal.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This has happened each time I've started in the last 3 weeks.

My gyno can't see me for a month, are there certain signs I should look for that would consult going to the ER?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Periods every week for last weeks, migraine and tiredness are clear indications of some hormone issue. These warrant an early evaluation. Since you are unable to get an appointment, you may go to an urgent care or walk in clinic where blood tests for hormones and an ultrasound can be done.

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.
