How heavy is a ‘heavy’ period?
Is there a particular volume of blood above which we can say a woman is having heavy periods?
Is it the number of sanitary towels or tampons used?
These questions come up – because the quantity and of bleeding at each period does vary from one woman to the next.
On average, losing over 80 ml of menstrual period is considered heavy menstrual bleeding, but some women could less than this quantity – yet still have a ‘heavy’ period.
It is important to consider the impact of the amount of blood lost – not just the fluid volume in deciding how heavy the period is.
