Heavy Bleeding

What is it?

Approximately 25% of women are troubled at some time by heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia.  This condition causes excessively heavy blood flow with your period or abnormally frequent periods, resulting in physical and emotional distress.  You may experience periods that last a long time with bleeding so heavy that you need to change your pad or tampon every 1-2 hours.  Also, you may need to changed pads at night and worry about leaving the house during your period.
