I agree with the above message. It is prob just your hormones felxing their muscles, but it will plummet your iron count and make you anemic in a heartbeat. Getting it checked out is a must because you could have an underlying issue such as fibroids or adenomyosis. You don't need to go to the ER though unless you 1) soak through one or more thick pads per hour. 2) feel lightheaded or sick to your stomach. 3) You become pale or dehydrated. Watch these things and get into your GYN as soon as you can, get a sono to rule out fibroids, and drink lots and lots of water to keep hydrated. Hope all goes well. By the way..this is just experience with work (I am an ultrasound tech), and personal. Call the Dr, for I did not have the patience to become one..lol.
