How heavy is your flow? *TMI WARNING*

Mine is normally light and last 7 days, but this time it's gushing with lots of dark clots. IDK what is going on! I am on my 5th super jumbo tampon. Earlier I had worn one for 2 hours, I felt myself leaking so I went up to change it, as soon as I sat down the damn thing shot out of me like a log flume! And now my underoo's are toast. GRRR! Stupid period. Why is it so heavy? I have been having periods for 14 years and this is the heaviest one I have ever experienced.

*UPDATE*

I haven't gone to the doctor yet. I have an appt for Monday, but I am considering the ER. Everytime I switch my tampon the toilet looks like a crime scene. I have about 3-4 6 inch clots everytime and all the gushing blood. I am not cramping anymore though. How long will this last? I have gone through 21 tampons in 2 days plus 3 overnight pads. Last night I woke up every 1.5-2 hours because I felt myself leaking. This is making me crazy!

I'm sorry... I am laughing too hard at the log flume part to have anything serious to say. Hope it gets better soon.

8 days long, I hate it!

Miscarriage maybe? or another hormonal change?

Possible miscarriage? Change to pads and if you change them more than once an hour, bright red blood, pass clots bigger than 1/2 a dollar might want that checked out.

I bleed ridiculously, especially after having my son and then developing fibroids. It's amazing to me that I'm not anemic.

This has been happening to me for the last few months. Its awful. I can't leave the house for 3 days. I have had to miss work because of it. Mine have always been fairly light and short. Now its just like you described. Sometimes I can only go twenty minutes or so before leaking through a tampon if there are lots of clots. I read that this is often hormonal and is changes in your hormone levels.
