Hello! I've been having serious problems with my period as I had it two times this month, there is a lot of blood ad well as clots. Every day, I feel weaker, sick, unhappy, frustrated and the pain can't be taken away with a painkiller anymore. I've recently done my second vaccine for HPV, and last summer I had the same problem as for June I had 4 Periods and in July none. Hepl, please Thank you!
JA: Apologies for the personal questions, but are you using any contraceptives? How long have you dealt with the HPV infection?
Customer: I don't have an HPV infections and I've never used contraceptions I did the vaccine as a precaution
JA: Got it. When was your last smear test, and what were the results? Any swelling, discoloration, or unusual smells?
