What is considered a heavy period?

how do you know if your period it too heavy and you need to see a doctor. It is normal for me, but this months seems unusally heavy.

  • I have to change a super tampon every hour on the first day. But I've always had heavy periods.
    I have a hard time going to church on Sunday mornings, making it through the service and back home. That's with a super tampon and huge pad.
    That's just how it is for me.

  • if you use more than one tampon or pad per hour you need to go to ER. If you see any sudden changes in whats "normal" for you I would call your doc
