    Default When to go to the Doctor (might be a bit TMI)

    My period is, for me, super super heavy.

    Is this normal?

    I've bled thru 3 x super/heavy tampons in 5 hours. Bled thru as in after 1.5hrs my undies are heavily stained.

    Should I go to see my Dr?
    This isn't normal for me, but every month seems to be heavier.

    FYI I'm not planning to have another baby ever. They are regular just super heavy.

    Never had these issues b4.

    Thanks

    I would say the time to go to the Doctor about this sort of thing is if you are feeling worried or upset about it.

    If you're anxious enough to post on here about it then I would think that perhaps it might ease your mind to go and see someone.

    It might be completely normal - I've had variations in my cycle before. But a quick chat to the Doctor and a general health check up costs relatively little and might buy you some peace of mind

    Good luck hon.

    If you feel like you are loosing too much I would go see the doctor. Some conceptives they can give you helps slow down the bleeding or even stop it completely

    If its out of the norm and you are in pain then there is no harm seeing your Dr.
    For me that is normal even after having a mirena BUT mine have always been awfully heavy, if I had a light one I'd prob worry something was wrong. Ha

    I would personally see a dr. It coukd just be your normal or maybe its something like endo or something hormonal that can be managed.

    Over 2 years ago, so everything should be well and truly settled.
    Due for a Pap smear about now so will mention it then.

    Ps I'm not on birth control either so I'm not affected by any of those variables.

    After my second child, my periods are so heavy that some months I have to stay home for the first day (super tampon + pad). I asked the Dr about it at my last Pap smear and she says it quite normal. It has settled quite a bit but still heavier than it was pre kids. I am not on the pill and it's not uncomfortable. I did consider a hysterectomy but the cons outweighed the pros for me. Get your pap done and chat to your Dr to put your mind at ease.
