Thanks for query,
As you are having heavy period,if this is for the first time,nothing to worry.
Every time you get more flow and remained for long time,you are having menorrhagia.Then consult gynaec and get hormonal treatment done for few months.
ok and bye.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You are having Menorrhagia.You should get this evaluated properly.There could be some underlying gynecological abnormality which can be detected by investigations.Heavy flow not only disturbs your life style but also reduces the Hemoglobin content causing anemia .
If you have had rectal bleeding , you should not neglect it at all and get examined by General surgeon.
I advise you to visit your Gynecologist for further management.
Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
