(sorry if this is graphic)
About an hour ago, I came out of the shower, and my stomach was cramping up so bad. I had to curl into a little ball, to try to ease the cramps. But it wasn't helping. I'm on my period, but it should be ending in a day or two. I usually NEVER get cramps too. So I went pee, and all of a sudden, there was major bleeding.
So I got up to try & dry my hair, and the cramps were just sooo horrible. They still are. No one is home either. I took some ibuprofen awhile ago, but its not helping. Is this cramps, or could it be something else? Oh yeah, the bleeding isn't as heavy when I stand up or move around, or even just sit down. But once I go pee, the major bleeding starts again. Is this normal? I've never gotten cramps this bad before..

If you're having hardcore symptoms that are very out of the ordinary for you, as a general rule., it's always smart to call into your healthcare provider, especially when pain relievers aren't doing anything.

And I'd suggest doing that, since towards the end of a period, intense cramps out of nowhere or suddenly heavy bleeding is a bit out of the ordinary, especially when neither of those things are ordinary for you at all.
