Wear Pad Tampon
Had baby in nov & went on paraguard in jan. Having heavy bleeding. Have to wear pad & tampon together. I have to change every hour or less. What's up?
Can make bleeding worse. It sounds like it is your first period so I assume you are not breast feeding. There is a medication called Lysteda that will decrease bleeding during menses. You could get on the pill for a month and see if that improves it or wait it out. It may not be as bad going foreward.

Rest assured that an abnormally heavy period would not be implantation bleeding. ...Read more

First of all you posted in ob/gyn, are you pregnant? If so this is an emergency and you should go to OB triage. Hopefully you are not pregnant, I think you would have mentioned that in your post.
On to your concern, you need to be evaluated by your doctor right away, a more worrisome issue would be a fistula or it could be something as simple as a uti. Either way you need an evaluation and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more
