Blood Everywhere... HELP *TMI*

Do not read on if any kind of womanly blood makes you queesy.


So yesterday I got my period, that's fine, it's right on time. So changed my pad a couple of times yesterday, bleeding wasn't ridiculously heavy, which is also normal; I've never had a heavy period in my life.

Changed my pad right before bed last night, woke up this morning, everything felt fine, until I stood up and it felt like someone had opened the flood gates! I just had to throw out a brand new pair of underwear and my pj pants because they were soaked, and I had blood running down my leg. Ran inside, had a shower, a bit more blood.

Now I think it may have settled down, but this is so bizzare. What would cause a heavier period like that?

Dunno but ever since my second and last dd was born i have had really heavy periods. In less than 2hours i can go through a super tampon and heavy pad. I have found the new.always infinity pads to be a god send. They allow me to sleep all nite. Luckily the heavy part last only 2 or 3 days then it slows down

Only advice is is to inform your doctor and see if they can figure it out. BUMP

No idea. I lose the amount of blood you're supposed to lose total in a single day! I'm going to the dr next week.

Next time, don't throw your clothes away. Soak them in a bucket full of peroxide. As long as it's not dry, peroxide takes out the entire bloodstain. Just have to add fresh peroxide as needed to the stain comes clean, then wash like normal. Just have to glove up and give it a scrub every few minutes. Straight peroxide does the job.

Eh, I don't have a regular doctor I go to, and I don't feel faint or anything, doubt a miscarriage would come on the exact day my period is due. Ah well. Thanks anyway. Hormonal changes is a possibility I suppose.

Fibroid tumors can cause heavy periods.
