I missed your response yesterday, my question was whether I needed to see a doctor right away or wait until Monday. I went to urgent care and all was well. I need to follow up with my specialist.

If these degree of bleeding continues you need a test for anemia, if that has not been done.

If you have any other symptoms,l such as weakness, to the emergency room.

Or, see your doctor now.

I feel better already! 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.

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.
