Hi!
Some girls do have heavy periods and usually there is no cause. However, at times heavy periods or menorrhagia has a cause. One possibility is that it is a miscarriage, if you have a history of unprotected sex. Hence take a pregnancy test and see. If you are miscarrying, it will still be positive.
Other causes of heavy bleeding which should be ruled out are fibroids, adenomyosis, endometriosis, uterine polyps, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems and bleeding disorders.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your gynecologist. Take care!
