Having my first proper period for about 5 months and I'm bleeding very heavily. Having to change tampon every 45 minutes to an hour.

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

You are most likely in your perimenopausal period and have hormonal fluctuations. Heavy bleeding is expected for few hours, however you have to keep yourself well hydrated by taking lots of fluids to avoid blood volume loss. If bleeding does not decrease in 6 to 10 hours or you feel symptoms like dizziness then do see a doctor.

if this persists through tomorrow, I need to see my GP?

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, that is correct or if the bleeding becomes worse or your blood pressure drops or you feel dizzy then seek urgent care for thorough examination. Take lots of fluids to replace blood loss.
