I am 27 years old. It is my first time experiencing this as I am a lesbian and have no sexual interaction.
I missed my period three months back, but I got my period the next month with a normal flow and mild cramps, the usual I get every month. Then, by the month's end, I noticed that when I peed and wiped it with a tissue, there was blood, but when I put on a napkin, there was no blood coming out. A few days later, it started to be a light flow, and until now, I am still bleeding. However, I do not have cramps, and I change pads once a day because it is not heavy flow. Please help.
I read your query and can understand your concern.
Many factors can affect menstrual flow and regularity. Check for certain factors such as a strict diet, strenuous exercise, illness, medications, hormonal imbalance, contraceptives, stress and anxiety. Continuous check on cycle flow and regularity is needed. If it continues with sudden weight gain or abnormal hair growth, you need to have investigations and a transvaginal scan.
I suggest you have combined oral contraceptive pills for three months to regulate the cycle. However, please consult a physician, discuss with them, and start taking the medications with their consent.
Hope this helps.
Thanks and take care.
