Wow, I'm so jealous of your periods haha. I go through over 2 packs (so roughly 20) super tampons and 10 overnight pads in just the first 40 hours. Then I go through another pack of regular tampons and half a pack of regular pads for the rest of the day.

That does sound very heavy. Has it always been this way or just started like this?
I'm probably one of those lucky ones, spotting/light on day 1, pretty heavy day 2 (still no where near like you) day 3 is light where I wouldn't need to wear pad or tampon over night and day 4 is just a bit of odd spotting here and there.

It's always been heavy like this. Maybe getting slightly worse but it's always been a strict requirement to double up those first two days.

Yours sounds very similar to my AF. Mine lasts for 7 days and is painful. The first day is quite light, then the second and third day is just horrible. I can feel it spurting out (yuck!) sometimes when I am walking or sitting and I usually have to change my pad immediately. I dont bother wearing tampons anymore because they soak through within an hour or so. I used to leak in bed when I was younger but I have found that it just all floods through when I get out of bed in the morning so I have to rush to the toilet lol. Since going on the pill a few months back it has slowed a little bit but it's still horrible. So much tmi in my post lol.

Ahalfdozen, I've only just come back to this.
Fibroids are uterine tumours that are generally benign. Heavy painful periods are one of the most common symptoms.
What you've described with your Mum sounds exactly like what eventually happened in my Mum's case, before she had a hysterectomy. It is apparently genetically influenced, too. It can't hurt to ask about it next time you see your doctor.
There is more info here http://www.womenshealth.gov/publicat...-fibroids.html
Hugs. Your periods sound just awful, and you're a trouper to go through it every month x
