How much bleeding is too much?

Heavy menstrual bleeding (known as menorrhagia) is defined when the period is abnormally heavy or prolonged. Heavy menstrual bleeding is common, but it’s important to talk to your doctor to investigate it further and consider any underlying causes.


To define heavy bleeding, you will find you soak through a tampon or pad every 2 hours or less, you may need to change your sanitary products during the night, or experience bleeding for longer than 8 days.
