Patient

Q: Hi Doc,
I had to take ipill on 18th Feb and my normal periods was already started the same day and then I took ipill since we had unprotctd sex the day before. Its 28 Feb and my periods are still going on with heavy flow. Am starting to feel weaker too. Please advise when will it likely stop and what do I need to do next now.

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thank you for writing to us.

Heavy bleeding 10 days after the actual start of periods is a grave sign. I think you should talk to a Gynecologist as soon as possible.

Here are a few causes-
- Infection
- Hormonal imbalance
- Fibroids
- Tumours
- Injury

After an examination and a more thorough history, the Gynecologist will reach a diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is reached, the Gynecologist will start you on the appropriate medication.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
