Heavy Period: It's quite likely you just had an abnormally heavy period and I would not necessarily make any assumptions about how this relates to a possible pregnancy in the near future.Sometimes fluctuating levels of your hormones can cause heavier bleeding and more cramping than normal.If this becomes more of a pattern,have a discussion with your doctor and how to get a handle on when you are ovulating.
