Irergular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Many options will lighten your period as well.

If there is a possibility that you were pregnant, this heavy flow may represent a miscarriage ......something to discuss with your OB-GYN provider.
