Normally my period is very irregular but for my last period

Customer Question

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.
