Heavy bleeding

I had my daughter 9 months ago I have had very little bleeding since that time, but when I do have a period it is very very heavy with lots of clots. Is this something to be concerned about? My ob gyn says there is nothing wrong!!

TR

Dear TR,

If I understand your post, you are having very irregular periods which are very heavy. It sounds like you are not ovulating. If you are not breastfeeding, your periods should have returned to normal by now. You should ask your doctor to check blood tests for a hormone problem. He or she may want to prescribe Provera to give stimulate a normal period. Sometimes that is enough to get you back on track.

Sincerely,
Amy
