See your doctor: Menorrhagia is the most common type of abnormal uterine bleeding characterized by heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding. There are several possible causes of menorrhagia including: Adenomyosis Uterine fibroids Infection, tumors, or polyps PID Rather than your very recent BTL being the cause of the bleeding, it is more likely to be because of one of the above. You need an ultrasound + examination
