How much is too much??

When is it too much bleeding during AF? And when are you supposed to call a dr?? In 5 hours I've soaked through 3 super I'm just wondering. Just an FYI though, I didnt have AF for about 2 months, and she finally started yesterday, so I dont know if its because of that.

  • If you are concerned call your doctor. Your doctor may want to see you just in case it could be something more serious. Go get yourself checked out.

  • holy cow I wrote a whole bunch and my stupid computer didnt send it ugh! long story short the reason I was put on depo when I was 19 (almost 24 now) was bc of heavy periods, but I dont remember if it was this bad. I was off depo for like 2-3 years and got preggo then back ok it after wards. (from jan 09-oct 09) then the periods were getting more normal until Jan of this year. I had a 40 day cycle then this 58 or 59 day cycle! I'm wondering if bc I put back on the 20lbs I lost while breast feeding. Around fall 09 I started to gain it back. So I'm afraid it could be a thyroid issue. (I weigh about 180-185) IDK.....guess I could always call and ask a nurse.....
