      In my experience I used to go through super tampons and pads very quickly. I always used a combination of both or I couldn't make it through the day. It got to the point where I thought I should just stay on the toilet, why bother? And of course horrible cramping, headaches, backaches.

      Mine always starts heavy for the first 2 to 3 days and I've noticed my mood is way worse. More irritable, my body is more sore, mainly my chest and hips. I crave and drink water as if I was constantly on the edge of dehydrating and I'm more prone to migraines. My appetite is disrupted as well. It's similar to how my first trimesters were when I was pregnant actually.

      I always have used extra supers or max super tampons and a heavy pad. The extra supers usually last 30 minutes. At night time I have to put a towel down and wake up ever two hours.

      I was having the same problem. I got an ablation and I had a pollup.( Excuse my spelling, dealing with brain issues) I never knew you could get pollup in that area 😅

        @dees Prior to my very necessary Total Hysterectomy at age 34, I had much the same issues. Major clots, horrible pain, and several very large cysts that had to be drained. My particular syndrome (immotile cilia syndrome, Kartagener's Syndrome, and PCD) was to blame for a lot of it. I was never able to even get pregnant, and was cautioned by my endocrinologist that if I did, the renal hypertension would most likely kill my and any developing fetus. That was enough info for me. Plus, having 1/2 a liter to a liter of fluid drained off every few months was very hard on me in addition to everything else. I still question myself over 10 years later if I made the right decision. Going through menopause at 34 is no joke.

      Bleeding extremely heavy… if you wear pads and you go through more than 2 in 2 hours.. not because you want to but because you have too..
