Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place so apologies if not.
I'm really worried and hoping someone can put my mind at rest. I'm 37 (not sure if this is relevant but I'm still breastfeeding my 23 month old a few times a day) My periods returned about 18 months ago and has been regular and the same as they were before I had my baby.
2 months ago I had a internal scan to look for problems relating to ongoing groin pain, it hurt and 2-3 days later I started having lower back pains, dark brown and red bleeding, this was 14 days after my period had ended, it continued until my period arrived and my period was unlike any I have had before, I had days of heavy clots like nothing I have seen before. When my period ended I had 3 days of no bleeding then the brown discharge and bleeding came back (14 days after period started) and it's continued. I'm due my period in a week and I'm so scared about what's going on. The doctor said the scan was clear and because I had a negative smear 18 months they are not worried. They did swabs for infections and blood tests to check my hormones and they were fine so they have put the bleeding down to anxiety because of past painc attack issues but I haven't been anxious about anything for years until I started with this bleeding issue. I am going to go back to the doctors because I'm not convinced they are right. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
