Heavy periods frequently are related to ovary cyst, abnormal hormone balance. If you are close to the menopausal,could be heavy, if you are taking to much pain medication, or having coagulation abnormalities. Ultrasound help, DR GYN. Check up and lab test, for hormone, coagulation profile,and back pain evaluation.

Dr. David I. Kurss answered:

How can I stop my heavy periods?

Hormones, Procedure

Endometrial_ablation
Heavy flows can be remedied relatively easily with the birth control pill, and IUD, a medication called Lysteda, or, for example a simple procedure called endometrial ablation. The procedure should only be done if you are finished having children and ideally have a permanent form of birth control on board. Of course, your Gyn should check that all is ok first with a sono, and some labs.

There are many reasons for heavy periods and they can occur at any age. Common reasons at a young age are use of certain medications (aspirin, some herbals etc), not ovulating regularly, and some blood disorders. If they are consistently heavy, get a good exam and some blood work to evaluate them.

You should see your gynecologist to find out the likely cause of your bleeding and which of the may choices may work best for you. There are a number of medications, both hormonal and the nonhormonal Lysteda, as well as the Mirena IUD. Several minimally invasive surgical options exist as well.

What does it mean to have "heavy periods"?

Define heavy

Heavy_periods
What is heavy menses for one woman might seem not so heavy for another. Some questions to help determine if your period is heavy. How many tampons or pads do you use daily? How many days do you bleed for? Do you have clots, or solid chunks of blood with your periods? Do you ever soak through your tampon or pad, getting blood on your clothes or bed sheets? If the answers are yes, see a GYN!

Why Heavy periods and period twice a month?

Be seen

Heavy_periods
Hormonal irregularity due to getting closer to menopause is the most common reason for irregular periods, but other possibilities include polyps or fibroids in the uterus, or abnormal cells in the lining of the uterus. I recommend you see your doctor and get a workup for this.
