  • Very good question!! When we menstruate that means we are shedding the thickened part of the uterine wall along with the unfertilized eggs. Point being, if we are shedding the unfertilized eggs along with the lining of the uterine wall, then what would cause some women to bleed more then others? Although, women who usually have heavy bleeding are more succeptable to anemia so you should watch for that. I think I will have to google this one :0)

  • It doesn't have anything to do with eggs, it's the uterine lining sloughing off. I don't know why some people bleed more heavily than others. But I used to be one of the heavy bleeders, then it lightened up while I was on the pill, and it's stayed that way ever since I got off the pill. So it can change, but don't know why. Maybe having the IUD will help you.
