    I got my period on Wednesday and it has been really really heavy. To the point where I can't sit down for too long or I will leak through. I went on a bike ride yesterday for around an hour and a bit and my seat was covered in blood. I feel like it's constantly gushing out.
    I really need to lighten it as I have a beach party on Sunday and if it's still like this then I'm going to have to cancel.
    Also I had my period two weeks ago and it's back so soon.
    Not on the pill, follow a vegan diet and I'm fairly active. Please help me, I absolutely hate this.

    Get pregnant. I'm joking.

    See your GP, he will put you on medication to control the period, i.e. the pill.

    there are lots of options- it can really help with heavy periods. Might be worth trying at least?

    Go speak to your Gp as it could be something underlying, if you dont want to go on the pill, there are other options such as getting norethisterone or transexamic acid which can help decrease the bleeding.

    Omg exactly! Why can't we just reabsorb the lining? And why does it have to be blood, of all the bodily fluids it had to be the one that just stains everything in its path!
