I had acute lower abdominal pain throughout the night?

12 days ago I had acute lower abdominal pain throughout the night, the next day i started with all over body ache, fever, loss of appetite and vomiting with extreme tiredness, this lasted for four days. During that time I did not take my usual medication, levothyroxine and the mini pill. On day 6 when still recovering from the illness I started with a heavy period (I haven’t had a period for years due to the pill I take), I assumed this was because I had missed a few days of the contraceptive pill, but I am not sure whether these two problems are linked or not. I have never experienced a period so heavy with a lot of blood clots and is as heavy now on day 7 of the period as it was on day 1. I have done a pregnancy test to check its not a miscarriage but it’s negative. I am a 40 yr old with previous history of large benign ovarian cysts which has resulted in the removal of one ovary two years ago. Any advice gratefully received.

  1. Hi.

    Your heavy flow seems to be most probably due to stopping the contraceptive pills only..

    You should consult a Gynaecologist and get a proper examination done..

    Hope this helps..

  2. Excessive flow can cause sudden weakness and needs proper evaluation and treatment..
