What could it be if instead of normal menstrual cycle you bleed for two hours very heavy with clots?

In brief: Normal or not?
Perceived abnormal menstrual bleeding can actually be normal.
There is a wide definition of normal menstrual bleeding and the amount and duration varies among women. Depending on the timing in the cycle and other risk factors the bleeding can be normal or abnormal. A full history and physical needs to be conducted to determine why a person's bleeding pattern may have changed.

In brief: Doctor give options
Abnormal periods need evaluation; sonogram, lab tests.
Non-surgical options include: birth control pills. Lysteda (non-hormonal rx taken during period), Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. Minimally invasive options: endometrial ablation (in-office), hysteroscopy polyp removal or fibroid resection; and only if these treatments fail then consider hysterectomy - vaginal or laparoscopic if possible.
