Get treated: There are lots of treatment options for heavy periods. For women who are not done having periods birth control pills work well. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds can decrease bleeding significantly. There is a nonhormonal medication called Lysteda that works great. For those done with childbearing endometrial ablations are good options.

Should be ok: Women can see occasional fluctuations in their cycles. Sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. It will usually get better over 3 or 4 cycles. If it doesnt, see your doctor for some medical options.
