I have been on my menstrual for a little over a month now. It was heavy for the first two to three days, but since then has been either very light to moderate. It has went from being completely brown to a mix to bright red.. and just switches between the three. It has actually been spotting on and off with those 3 colors since I was on fall break back in October.
Sometimes I have a knot feeling in my lower left abdomen. I can't feel the knot with my hand, but I feel it on the inside. My height is 5'4'' and I weight 90-93lbs. Not due to any unhealthy reason, God just made me that way. I eat regularly and I am not sexually active.
I called my doctor, but she will not be in office until monday. I was wondering if this is something I should be seriously worried about and if you could give me anything that causes these symptoms, because I'm having a hard time finding information on the net.

I'm really worried.

Unless you're having severe pain or heavy heavy bleeding, i would say this is probably something that can wait until Monday, if it has to. If there are any walk-in clinics you go to first, you may want to try those.

If anything changes though, and you do have severe pain and/or heavy bleeding, don't wait; get to an ER.
