For many women, the monthly menstrual cycle is more than just a period; it's a challenging ordeal, especially for those experiencing heavy flows. The sensation of losing what feels like liters of blood can be distressing, not to mention the constant worry over leaks and the need for frequent pad or tampon changes. But what if there was a better way to manage even the heaviest of flows with ease and confidence? Enter Lumma Menstrual Discs — your reliable partner in transforming how you experience your period.

Understanding your flow type

While the average blood loss during a period is about 60 ml (roughly 2.7 ounces), it's not uncommon for some to experience much more than that.  A normal menstrual flow will fill a pad or tampon every 4-6 hours, while a heavy flow, medically known as menorrhagia, might require changing more frequently. If you find yourself needing to change your menstrual product every 2 hours or less, or if you’re passing clots larger than a quarter, it's likely you have a heavy flow. Other indicators can include a period that lasts longer than 7 days or one that interferes with your daily activities due to pain or the amount of bleeding.

How to Deal with a Heavy Menstrual Flow

Dealing with a heavy flow requires a proactive approach:

  • Track Your Cycle: Keeping a record can help you identify patterns and prepare for heavy days.
  • Choose High-Capacity Protection: Lumma Menstrual Discs, with their higher capacity compared to traditional methods, offer extended protection and can be a game-changer for those with heavy flows.
  • Stay Hydrated and Maintain a Healthy Diet: Eating foods rich in iron and vitamins can help mitigate some of the effects of heavy bleeding.
  • Consult with a Healthcare Provider: If your flow is consistently heavy, it might be worth discussing with a healthcare provider to rule out conditions like fibroids or endometriosis, which can contribute to heavy menstrual bleeding.

Incorporating these practices into your routine can not only help you manage a heavy flow more effectively but also enhance your overall well-being during your period. The Lumma Menstrual Discs offer a practical and comfortable solution to deal with heavy flows, allowing you to live your life with confidence, regardless of the time of the month.
