Nov 10, 2012 · Bleeding in Women's Health

I am a 46 year old woman. I have PCOS. I “thought” I was going through menopause – night sweats, hot spells, etc. I haven’t had a period for over two years – and with PCOS haven’t ever had a “normal” or “regular” period throughout my entire life. On Oct 18, 2012 I began to spot a little and within a few days, I was bleeding…a lot! I do not have shortness of breath, nor do I feel much fatigue…I guess. On the 15th of November (in 5 more days), I will have been bleeding for an entire month. The bleeding is heavy and with a lot of clots. The clots aren’t “big”, but there are a lot of ’em. I am soaking a pad every hour…or when I cough, get up from a chair, stretch, laugh…oy!! I am wearing 3-4 pads at a time. I don’t want to go see my doctor (don’t have health insurance) just to have him tell me to go home, take a couple of ibuprofens and stay off my feet. I can do that on my own. =} Has anyone had this happen? Should I be worried? Normal? My THANKS! to anyone who can shed some light! God bless you! =}
