Excessive menses is called menorrhagia. A single or few episodes of heavy menses is very common and most women go through such episodes at one time or the other. It can be due to a number of causes:
Hormonal imbalance:
*Adolescence
*Pre-menopausal
* Stress
* Weight gain/loss
Uterine Fibroid tumours
Cervical polyps
Endometrial polyps
Lupus
Pelvic Inflammaotory Diseases (PID)
Bleeding disorders - due to use of aspirin or other drugs.



Any menses which last for more than 10 days requires a medical checkup. There could be different causes, but the doctor would need to do a physical exam and a thorough investigation. They can do several things to help you stop bleeding so heavily--medications, D & C, endometrial ablation, to name a few. The best approach for you is to approach a gynaecologist.


Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
