I have one period approximately every two months and they're very very heavy and what I want to know is how much blood is too much blood and can I do anything to lighten the flow maybe drink more water? Or take a certain vitamin? I'm asking because one super plus tampon does not do me good but for about 5 minutes I have put two sometimes three tampons Inn at one time only to be right back in the restroom having to change them in 30 minutes or so I have a lot of very very large blood clots also and I want to know if this is normal this amount of bleeding and clotting.
It doesn't sound normal to me at all. The amount of fluid from menstruation is only about 80ml to 140ml (about 3 to 5.5 fluid ounces). Many women don't believe this but it happens to be true. Having 3 super tampons leaking through after 30 minutes is not natural at all. For starters you need an iron supplement as you are likely anemic.
Then, see a gynecologist as the answer is likely to be an hormonal issue. A competent female GP might be an alternative but I would stick with a specialist after a GP consult maybe where he/she will refer you to someone qualified.
Good luck and take care.
