I missed my first period in February and then thought I had missed March, until Thursday evening last week. I am having extremely bad stomach pains and heavy rushes of blood. I also feel very uncomfortable going out in caase I flood through my clothes. Also, the pain makes me double over and I have to sit down. This has never happened before, I hope you can help. I am 52 years old. I have to be cautious taking pain killers as I have IBS and Diverticular disease and pain killers cause my stomach problems to flare up.
