  • maybe you should go to a doctor or the emergency room are you feeling light headed or nauseous or looking a little pale? Is there a chance that you could be pregnant? Do you normally flow heavy?

  • Sorry, but I have to say that this does NOT sound like a normal question.
    Are you joking?
    Either way, if you're bleeding THAT much maybe you should get checked out. If you're kidding and think this is funny, then you should get checked out.

  • I would have my uterus taken out if I was bleeding like that.
    Maybe a diaper would be more comfortable. I am not being mean, I am serious.

  • I have to use the Tampax Ultra's in the purple wrapper. I also use the Always over nights in the black and purple package. This is really long and wide at the front and back. I am glad they came out with them because I leak through on my 2nd day when I am at my heaviest. This helps "blow outs" in my pants...major embarrassing! I did have a fybroid years ago which caused heavier than normal periods. I had a D&C to remove it and things got a bit better.

  • Some women bleed like gutted pigs after having a tubal. Having a tubal seems to (or can) permanentely change your menstral cycle. Definately get checked out for fibroids though. They can be seen with an ultrasound. Good luck!
