The most common type of abnormal bleeding from the uterus is Menorrhagia or heavy and prolonged menstrual periods. Bleeding that soaks a pad or a tampon every hour for several consecutive hours is considered to be heavy.
Other symptoms of a heavy period can include:
• Heavy bleeding at night that requires you to get up and change pads or tampons.
• Passing large blood clots during menstruation.
• A period that lasts longer than seven days
This heavy bleeding may have a negative impact on your daily activities and your sleep patterns in severe cases. Excessive blood loss due to menorrhagia could result in fatigue, shortness of breath or anaemia.
