Why are my periods so heavy?
Heavy periods are so hard to deal with and embarrassing to boot!
Do you seem to bleed for more than 7 days? Do you bleed through your pads or tampons? These are all things that we as girls or women have to deal with, and when it is time for your period, you know, that these things consume our minds.
There could be a few reasons why certain people have heavy periods and you may even have blood clots that feel like your insides are falling out, I know because I used to have heavy periods and clots like that.
Women lose at an average of 30-40 ml of blood during their periods, when you are a heavy bleeder you can lose up to 80 ml of blood, so that is double the average.
A few reasons on why you are a heavy bleeder may be, hormonal, a condition called menorrhagia, which in return can cause anemia, medications, maybe birth control plays a part, there can be so many reasons, it is always best to see your physician so they can pin point the reason.
What ever the reason is, it is always so difficult to deal with this issue.
On a personal note, I was always a heavy bleeder, I had to wear 2 pads to bed and always bled for 7 full days, then when I became peri-menopausal it got worse, with blood clots all the time, that lasted for about 5 years, then all of a sudden they stopped!
But along with the heavy bleeding came chronic yeast infections, in my mid 40's I struggled with both, it was not fun! For all you women out there who struggle with heavy periods, chronic yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, odor or what ever your intimate issues happen to be, I feel your pain, I have been there!
Of course it is very important to see your physician and get checked out but it is also very important to find something that works for you, I found V-Blissful Soothing Solution, that completely changed my life.
All I can say if you are struggling is don't stop searching, take your health into your own hands, and natural is always better in my book!
