I woke up and my pants were wet with blood;


Q: I woke up and my pants were wet with blood; my pants and sheets are black so I can't tell how much blood was expelled onto them but when I went to the bathroom there was a TON of blood. I had my period and it ended a few days ago. I missed my birth control the last two days in a row, but this bleeding is ridiculously heavy and I am worried it's more than just my period. I've been consistently super bloated for weeks now, and it has just gone away in about the last two days. Within these couple of days I've started having cramps and stomach pains, but none of the other cramps I usually get during my period, like in my thighs and back. Could I be miscarrying? I have been having unprotected sex using the pull out method, but I know that's not foolproof. Please please let me know what this could be.
