Heavy Flow/Irregular Periods

For some women, a heavy menstrual flow each month can affect their overall quality of life, dictating how and when they plan their engagements or go about their everyday activities. 

Bleeding is considered heavy if it:

  • soaks through one tampon or pad an hour for several hours
  • requires double protection — such as a tampon and pad — to control menstrual flow
  • causes you to interrupt your sleep to change your pad or tampon
  • lasts longer than 7 days
