Went to a gyno and was referred to a sex therapist because, without even testing me apparently there was nothing wrong with me. Im 22, so still young so i think that has alot to do with why they don't pay attention to me.

    Will see what comes from the ultrasound. It doesnt look like my uterus did the last time I had one. Will try some of the suggestions.
    Thanks girls. Oh and im pretry amazed at how many of you use 2 pads at night. Must be a sign that the companies need to improve their products.

    Also, just so you're aware my doctor told me they can't diagnose endometriosis through ultrasound, they have to do a laporoscopy to see if that's what you have. I had years of 'normal looking ultrasounds' & my ob/gyn wanted to book me in for the procedure & that's how my endo was diagnosed. Please, please, please go & see another doctor! I had troubles for years & finally found a good one, I'd be lost without them...

    Something I've always used and as a result managed to avoid leaks or mess on the sheets. -

    Roll some toilet paper or a tissue into a cigarette shape and wedge it into the crack. It acts as a soaker and guaranteed is wet when you go to the loo next at night. Like other pp said, it's when you lie down the blood doesn't run out into the pad it is absorbed into the paper wedge instead. (Or otherwise soaks your underwear and then sheets).

    Passed down from my mum. She's a clever lady!

    Hugs OP, it sounds like a few of us on here know how frustrating and exhausting heavy periods are!

    Like Mopeg, I also have fibroids and before I had them treated, my periods were really, really heavy.

    In the end, my GP prescribed me some medication to reduce my blood loss just so I could leave the house during the day and get some sleep at night - it was a huge help and it might be worth asking your doctor about it, too.

    In the meantime, I used two pads at night (I liked the thick ones, not the ultra-thin ones which didn't make me feel as 'supported'), I slept on a towel and resigned myself to getting up a few times to change pads. Unfortunately I never found anything else that really worked!

    I hope you get some answers soon

    Go see a new gyno, when I had baby 1 at 21 I can remember getting so ****ty because he was sick and I was sick and no one would listen to me because I was 21 so I ended up almost dead!
    When I had baby 2 at 22 my doc told me (with out me asking) that it would be silly to have my tubes tied because relationships break up and I might have a new partner in 5 yrs time and insisted straight after birth I go on birth control because I wouldn't want anymore babies so young!
    Doctors treat you like an idiot when your young! It's so frustrating and disheartening!
    Stand strong and firm.

    Ibuse tampon and pad. It used to frustrate me a lot when a leaked abd that was all the time. I had to suck it up and put on a tampon (used to be terrified of them). Glad I did

    I use a cup and don't have really heavy period so can't help in that respect

    But ... the Midwife holding the ante-natal classes at the Hospital advised that after birth instead of wearing maternity pads to put a newborn nappy in your underwear. They are a great size, shaped perfectly and the elastic sides hold everything in. TMI - but I forgot and was in a mess shortly after DD was born, remembered the nappy suggestion and no further problems. Can't hurt to try.
