irregular periods
hi doc, i am on the pill, have been for about 5 years now. for the past two months i've been having my normal period, and about ten days after, another period. i havent missed a pill or even stopped. the second periods are very very heavy.
i have been diagnosed with an inactive kidney(the left one) that needs to be removed, could that have an affect on my periods? should i change pill? could it be fibroids?

The kidney wuld not affect your periods. Fibroids are a possibility and you should see a gynaecologist for an internal examination and pap smear.
