When it is soaked: But you should have an evaluation of the heavy period by your gyn for proper diagnosis and treatment so you won't have to deal with heavy bleeding and make sure nothing strange is going on, like an endometrial polyp, fibriod, pre- cancer, cancer , etc. You should go for an exam, blood work and ultrasound and you may need a short 4 minute in offcie hysteroscopy and biopsy to make sure u are ok.
