OB GYN

Normally my period is very irregular but for my last period

Customer Question
I skipped like 3 months...
Normally my period is very irregular but for my last period I skipped like 3 months, when I finally got it it was nothing like a period. It is brown discharge with clots and occasional blood, and is still happening. It's probably been going on for about four weeks now. I am worried about my health and feel as if this is not normal. What could this possibly be?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

This could either be a thyroid issue, polycystic ovarian syndrome or a clotting deficiency.

You will need a pelvic ultrasound and blood work to rule out hormonal issues and especially anemia considering how much you've been bleeding.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

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.
