Why Are My Periods So Heavy?

Cheeky Team

If you have to change your pad or tampon after less than two hours or if you have clots of blood that are larger than a quarter, that is considered heavy period bleeding. 

There’s tons of different reasons why your period might be heavy including everything from hormonal imbalance and birth control to certain bleeding disorders, cancers, non cancerous tumors, and ectopic pregnancy. It can be scary to not know exactly what’s going on, but the best thing you can do is reach out to your doctor so they can help you figure it out. Treatment might be as simple as trying a different birth control. Tracking your period and counting the number of tampons and pads you go through before your doctor visit is a great way to come in with as much information as possible and hopefully feel empowered to make informed medical decisions.
