Hi. This might include a bit of TMI but I'm quite nervous and need advice
Last night I went for a pee, and after I wiped, the toilet paper had blood on it. My blood ran cold. I checked in the toilet - no blood that I could see. So it looked like it was just on the paper. I freaked out and went to bed. Woke up this morning, went for a wee - no blood. But a little while later I got what I assumed was my period? I mean, I had blood in my pants. The thing is though, usually when I get my period, I get dark, not heavy spotting for the day or so before (never noticed it on toilet paper before). And I don't know, this just feels different than usual
Maybe it's my anxiety? It's not like a proper period, at least not like I normally have? Light the blood doesn't seem to be.. constant. It's most noticeable in the toilet after I pee. My last period was at the end of December/beginning of January - my periods have never been 'regular' though from January until about September last year I got one every month, bar one I think. Then from September it went a bit weird again. My doctor told me a while ago it's because of my medication (Risperdal and Sertraline) and won't look into it further. My mum says the same, it's just my meds. In December my period was a lot shorter than usual and a bit like the one I'm experiencing now, as in, it felt 'different'.
Is there something badly wrong? Or can periods be like this? To clarify, in case my message above got a bit blabbery: I peed yesterday, blood on toilet paper (not in toilet). Today I got some blood in my pants but it doesn't look how it 'normally' does at the start of my periods? The blood is very light, fresh blood. And there isn't a lot of it.
EDIT: I've also been experiencing possible period symptoms the past few days - sensitive boobs, and also a relatively bad pain in my side, below my rib cage but above my hip, when I breath in.
