|Excessive Menstral Flow by theolar: 11:05pm On Dec 20, 2012|
For about a year now I have noticed that on the second day of my period to the third day my menstral flow is unusually heavy. I mean its so bad that one pad gets full in less than 2hours and that can be uncomfortable especially when at work. I am currently trying to lose weight to see if there would be a change. Just want to know has anybody ever experienced that.

are you using any contraceptive? For me i had very heavy flow when i had a copper iud on, that was the only time i experienced such or close. Please, get help from a doctor ASAP before you become anemic and whatever is causing that needs to be addressed.

You should go nd get a scan done could be something else is going on. I had this problem befor it was also accompanied by a lot of pain and cramps. I had a scan done and it showed i had fibroids and a polyp, so go and get checked out.

Dear,heavy bleeding(menorrhagia) has a subjective definition. Since its difficult to quantify the amount of blood loss. However,complaints like menses disrupting usually activities,using increased number of pad,tiredness,longer duration of flow,can help tag someone as having menorrhagia.
Did you get your get your present job around the same time this problem start? Stress (including vigorous exercise) can cause hormonal imbalance which can lead to heavy bleeding,especially as you are trying to loss weight. other possible causes include fibriod and other tumors(including cancers),IUD(intra uterine device),drugs including anti inflammatory drugs,bleeding disorder.
Some girls have heavy menses during their puberty while some during menopause. The mechanisms isn't necessary here.
Other times,the cause is not known.
If you find your menses so distressing i advice you visit a gynaecologist,for proper evaluation. The earlier the better.

For now,i will advice you suspend you weight reducing exercise especially if your not over weight.
And plan a visit to a gynaecologist.
