A bit of advice
i have a question. I started my period 7 days ago I am normailly only 5 days. On the 6th day i was just menstrating during the day. Last night I went our drinking and I had a heavy bleed (not normal for me) of clean red blood (it is usually a very dark colour) then last night I had severe pain in my lower left abdomen below my tummy and am still feeling a bit of a sting there today. Last year I ended up in hospital after I lost a lot of blood from the injection whicg also cause slight damage. I am on Triphasil and am sexually active. Today I am back to what I usually am at the end of my period. Should it be anything for me to worry about! I am so scared I won't be able to have children.
thank you

If the period ends with out any further problems, I would suggest that you wait and see what happens next month. If it continues, you should see your doctor.
