Patient : I'm 24 years old. I skipped 4 periods over the summer. I took 5 pregnancy tests (urine tests, both at home and at the clinic) and all came back negative. Finally about 3 weeks ago, I got my period. It lasted 11 or 12 days, and it normally lasts 6 days. It started out light, and got heavier towards the end which is also not normal, as it usually starts heavy and gets lighter. Other than that, everything seemed normal.
Since my period stopped, every time I have sex, I bleed quite a bit. The bleeding doesn't last more than a few hours.
I'm wondering what could cause this. I've been with the same partner for 2 years, neither one of us has ever had an STD. Unfortunately, going to the doctor is not an option. I'm on my mother's insurance plan but I moved cross-country, and there are no providers in my area.
