WorriedReader on Jun, 7, 2014:
I am a 30yr f of mixed ethnicity.I had heavy bleeding for 2 weeks, and fainted. After I went to the ER for help, (I wanted a D&C)they sent me home with something that that would help my uterus contract and was also a vasocontrictor. Instead of addressing the issue of the bleeding, the medication worsened my condition and left me in the ICU for 2 weeks. I don't except blood products. So don't wait too long, to see a doctor. Your loosing blood. 2 months sounds like a dangerously long time to be bleeding. Please take care.
