Menopause

Bleeding to death from period

07/30/2007

Question:

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.

Answer:

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.
