Bleeding to death from period



can you bleed to death from a continous period? Flow isnt real heavy, only enough for one pad a day, but is lasting now for 2 months? I have seen a doctor, she prescribed progesteren, but isnt working.


If the bleeding is heavy enough, one could theoretically bleed to death.  If the progesterone is not solving the problem, please return to your clinician for a different treatment.
