According to our gynecologist, Dr. Smiti if you happen to use more than 16 sanitary napkins in one monthly cycle, you have abnormal bleeding. This can be considered heavy menstrual bleeding. We call it heavy bleeding if you bleed more than 80 ml per period.

1. Endometrial Polyp is a non-cancerous growth on the inner wall of the uterus.
2. Fibroids.
