Why would my periods stop in the middle for 24 hours?
That's it really. It has been like this for the last few years (at least since second baby but possibly before, can't remember). Now after third baby seems more pronounced than ever.
After the second day, my period just stops, completely, for between 12-24 hours. Then it starts again, lighter but still 'normal'. It does then 'go on' somewhat for some days, gradually getting sparser and brown and yucky. Even drags on somewhat.
Is this something I should worry about do you think? It is odd and wasn't always like this so I'd like to understand why... Any ideas?
Mine have usually been like that, it's like your body is playing games with you, you think it's all over and put away the tampons/pads etc for another month... and oops here comes a little bit more to piss you off! I figured it was all normal.
Oh mine do that too. Every month. Do I learn? No. Each month I am lulled into a false sense of security thinking 'Oh good that one only lasted a couple of days'. Then on day 3 or 4 - another splurge... very annoying!
oh... I've wondered since I had ds. He was breech for as long as I could feel him. Everyone kept saying "he'll turn" but he never did, his head was always under my ribs. No somersaults, nothing. We tried to turn him and he steadfastly refused. I wondered if it was something to do with that, but is that the sort of thing that would have shown up on a scan? No one mentioned anything like that, it only really occured to me after he was born.
You may laugh, but the woman who does my waxing told me the other day they only discovered she had a bicornate uterus after three breech deliveries... they gave her a cs for the fourth. Not sure why after three breech deliveries, they might as well have done the fourth....
Perhaps your hormones have changed slightly and you get a little surge of something that makes you have a little extra bit of period.
It's something to do with your adrenal glands. ie not workign sufficiently well. Although a propery symptom, not a very important one - as in you don't need to worry about it, as long as you aren't crawling on the floor with fatigue - and other symptoms.
I finally got sent to an endocrinologist with all sorts of symptomes, this is what they said, but I wasn't sufficiently sick for them to have a solution... excellent result ???
On here for an emergency question, but couldn't let this one go.
Hi ladies I am hoping someone can help me. Similar to the problems some of you have had I was due a period on wednesday and like clockwork along it came, however it was only a very pale pink on the tissue, it then went away and along it came on saturday but this time it was brown and only on the tissue and very pale. Then sunday I wake and I know from the moment I stand up its not good. Very heavy and very painful. My husband and I are ttc. Is my body having a laugh at my expense? Help!
Hi, don't know if anyone is still looking at this thread.. I had a miscarriage last August with failed medical Management then an emergency d&c. My periods went from a regular 4-5 days of gradually reducing flow to 1 heavy day (more like 12 hours) then nothing for about 48hours then 2-3 days of very light brown bleeding. I conceived again in November but have just miss arrived again at 6 weeks. I had a d&c last week and have retained products. I am wondering whether the change in my periods was actually due to scarring from the d&c and if I could have ashermann's syndrome. That can cause sudden alterations in menstruation. Sorry for TMI. Does anyone out there have similar symptoms and have any idea why?
Hi Foxmummy, I had a cs followed by 2 miscarriages (then a successful pregnancy). However, after the cs my perods never went back to normal - bleeding for 3 days a gap of 2 days and then bleeding (brown, yucky, stingy)for another 3 - 5 days. This was miserable and went on foryears. The docs had no idea what was causing it and could only suggest the mirena coil. Eventually, as things got even worse after second cs - I gave in and got the mirena coil, which has solved the problem but I never found outthe cause and it was absolutely miserable. My daughter (14) has just told me that she has bleeding fro 3 days, off for 2 and back again so if anyone can throw any light on this so I can prevent her having to go through this I'd be eternally grateful.
