Not large ones or : Excessive ones are not, for my patients in coral springs and I have some in homestead that come to see me, i would do an exam, blood work and an ultrasound and there are many different treatment options to regulate your periods so they will not be so heavy assuming nothing strange is going on inside or outside the uterus, low dose bc pills or a medicine called Lysteda that is taken during periods.
