22. No medications. I have been diagnosed with anxiety in the past but no recent increases in my anxiety levels. Have never had this issue. I've had heavy bleeding like this for 3 days now of my cycle

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

It sounds that you are experiencing very heavy bleeding.

This should not be left ignored and has to be urgently evaluated in ER.

Please don't ignore it. Heavy loss of blood for long time, can lead to severe anemia and can lead to shock.

Possible reasons for such persistent long bleeding time are-

1. Fibroids- These are are benign (non-cancerous) growths in the muscle of the uterus.

2. Endometriosis , Infections or polyps, may lead to heavy periods.

3. Hormonal problems are also common cause for such condition. If you suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrone Or Underactive Thyroid Gland, then it may cause heavy periods.

4. Pelvic Infections.

At your age, most likely cause is- hormonal imbalance.

Your doctor may start with hormone pills like-Norethisterone, Long-acting progestogen contraceptives or combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP). These are prescription pills, and would most likely bleeding time, and help to regulate normal menstrual cycle.

Please see doctor in ER ASAP.

Hope this helped
