I started my period about 4 or 5 days late this month. It was a little heavier than usual. I was extremely heavy for 3 days and light for 4 days. About a week later I started spotting. I didn't think anything of it at first, but it was very light, than got a little heavy (no fresh red blood though, just the brownish), then got light again before it stopped. It lasted for about a week too. Now I'm experiencing some pretty massive cramping with soreness around my lower abdomen. When I massage around my lower abdomen, its sore and I feel the pressure in my vaginal area, and it kind of hurts. Even when I urinate, I feel pain in my urethra. Not the burning sensation that you would normally feel during a UTI, but more like a pain from the pressure. At times blood follows, but it comes out of my vagina, not the urethra. I've had a UTI once before and it felt nothing like this. I hope you can help me out. I don't have insurance right now. I make too much to qualify for Medi-Cal and only work part-time so I don't qualify for insurance through my job, but don't make enough to pay for private insurance as I have 3 kids. I'm 27 years old.
If I were you I would go to my nearest emergency room and have them examin you to rule out something icky. They can't refuse to see you because you are uninsured. You can make payment plans through the hospital for as little as 5 dollars a month if you have to. You need to stay well for these three beautiful children of yours. So get in and get seen.
