    I have been getting lower back pain and pain in my stomach for a while now. It also feels like something is between my legs and feels weird when I'm making love. My periods are very heavy and I am losing a lot of clots. What could this be?

    You'll probably have to be seen by your doctor. There are so many reasons possible. You may be experiencing perimenopause, or any number of pelvic conditions and may even be having more than one problem at once, not all related to sexual health. I would start at my gynecologist though.

    This article helps a little by explaining possible causes for your heavy bleeding and clots, which if this is not normal for you, needs to be examined by a physician for cause.

    Hi Sharon -


    I know this was quite some time ago for you, but did you ever find out what was causing this pain? If you did, perhaps you could come back and tell the community what the diagnosis was and how it was treated. Someone going through the same thing could find your experiences invaluable!
