  • I agree with both above posters.... mine changed drastically after having my tubes tied. Now if you haven't had anything like that done, then I'd go to the Dr asap

  • I have not had anything done, I just had a baby 2 months ago, but this is my second cycle since baby was born & the first was normal. I am not on birth control, and have been "sexually active" using only condoms. now I am bleeding through tampons like crazy.
