Period question *tmi* user banned
21st Nov '12

So yesterday my period was very watery and not much blood. (I asked about that part last night and got no response)
Fast forward to today it is very heavy. I'm soaking a pad every couple of hours. And my legs keep going numb from my hips down to the bottom of my feet, pins and needles feeling for quite a while.



Should I go to the dr? Or is that normal for some women?

I would say that isn't normal, go in and good luck.

That doesn't sound very normal, IMO. I think you should go in.

I hope they can see you soon and you can get to feeling better. Take care of yourself, mama. :)

They have no opening today. So I'm SOL. If it gets worse I'll go to urgent care... I think they have a sliding fee too since I don't have insurance.

Here they're pretty cheapo, I'm in Texas. I'm currently waiting on my health insurance to kick in. I paid $88 up front just to be seen and $200 for what I needed done. I'd call and ask to see if they do sliding scales where you live, if not then perhaps they can refer you to a clinic who does.

The last time I had to go in it was a few hundred. I'm feeling better for the most part, just cramps and the bleeding now. I'm going to try and nap for a bit before my DH leaves for work.. And yes, I think we do have sliding fees around here, I'll have to call and see if we qualify later :) forgot about that option.
