I have dark black periods every few days and can pull sheets of black membrane out from my vagina. does anyone else have this?

My back hurts all the time and my pelvic area, sore vagina, rectal bleeding, pain when I go toilet, swollen belly, fatigue and nausea. saw a gynecologist when I was 18 who told me to come back when I was sexually active. No improvement and intercourse is painful too.

Hi yes i get this from time to time, its dead blood coming away from your womb, for me it can last 10-14 days which gets me down. the pain can be bad too but you just have to get on with it.


I have a period every few days. So why would there be old blood? is it normal to have blood and pull membrane out during sex?


Hi Kings, no this does not sound normal especially at your young age and with the regularity of your periods.

If I were you I'd go back to the Gynaecologist and ask for examinations and scans to find out exactly what's going on.

It sounds like you're having a very tough time and I wish you all the best with your health in the future.


I would go to the drs/gynae and if you get no where ask for a second opinion. Those symptons are very similar to how I was when I was diagnosed with endo
