Hello, I've never posted here, so I'm sorry if this is long-winded or an annoying post in any way.
I'm 23, a big girl, and married. I've always had very irregular periods (one time I had a medium-heavy period that lasted for over 100 days, didn't have one for 3 months, the had a 2 month long period). My husband has very low testosterone but has been taking shots to improve his situation. We are not trying to conceive, but we did have an issue with a condom about 4 weeks ago (it kinda came off inside me and I didn't realize it). At that time it had been 2-3 weeks since my previous period, at least I think that's what it had been.
2-3 weeks after the issue with the condom I had breast tenderness, which is something I've never experienced before. I took a pregnancy test, but it came back negative. The next week the breast tenderness went away and I became very irritable for a few days.
I spotted for one day, then yesterday (4 weeks 3 days after the condom incident) I began having the worst cramps of my life. Normally, I cramp and it hurts in my lower back but goes away when I take Midol or PMS formula. I took Midol to the maximum recommended dosage and it didn't feel like it phased me at all. I never really cry about anything but I was very close to crying because of the pain. The cramps were much lower than normal and they were not in my lower back at all, they were in my lower pelvic region. At times the cramps would only happen on one side and other times it would happen on both.
I went to the bathroom 15-20 times yesterday because I felt like if I did anything I would gush everywhere. When I went to the bathroom I could tell that I was passing sizable clots, but I couldn't see the actual size because the water was too red to see through. Around 9pm the cramping became very mild and my flow lessened a little as well. The cramping returned around 4 or 5 am.
Today, I had to miss work because of the pain. I tried using tampons instead of pads to reduce the mess and I discovered that I was over-flowing the super sized tampons and leaking onto the pad every hour to an hour and a half. This lasted for 7 hours. I became extremely weak, tired, and forgetful. I took a three hour nap, but it didn't feel as if I had rested at all. Again, around 9pm, the cramping became mild and my flow lessened a little bit (1 super plus tampon every 2.5-3 hours). After drinking 2 pedialyte I don't feel forgetful or as exhausted, but I still feel week.
I tried searching the internet for answers, but as I have read each woman's symptoms can be different, so I was hoping to get someone's opinion.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and respond. It really means the world to me.
