In brief: A Few Possibilities

As we get into our 30's & 40's, periods tend to get heavier & more painful.
Commonly a woman has light periods while using hormonal contraception, gets a tubal & stops the birth control. The heavy, crampy periods that were controlled by the birth control return. Other conditions such as polyp or fibroid may have developed and need to be checkd out.
