It's frustrating. I went because I was bleeding so much and I'm anemic on top of it I was worried I was losing too much blood. It stresses me.

Does anyone else have this problem? Pretty heavy periods at the being of the cycle and then next to nothing in the middle? I was told to take Ibuprofen to help with the flow. Go to the ER if things got worse just for the ER to tell me that my blood work looked great and to contact my gyno. I've felt like a ping pong ball mentally and physically. Just been frustrated and not knowing what and why things are going on with my body.
