I have not had...

I have not had my period since Jan. It started yesterday and today I have severe cramping and the flow is heavier than it usually is. Is this normal?

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

They are usually very regular like clockwork

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

I missed a period once about 2 years ago. Testing at that time came back normal. Just had bloodwork done in jan that was normal

A delay and heavy flow for one cycle is not anything to be concerned about so it can occur normally as well due to hormonal fluctuation so nothing much to worry for now.

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.

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.
