You have excessive bleeding if you soak through 2 to 3 sanitary napkins/pads in 1 hour or soak 1 sanitary napkin/pad an hour for 3 hours. If this happens, you need to call us. With heavier bleeding, it can be helpful to lie down and put your feet up. If you usually use tampons, then you may think that there is more bleeding than usual because it looks like a lot on your sanitary napkin/pad. Please phone us if you are worried about the amount of bleeding you experience.
