I am 33 yrs old. I had my tubes tied two years ago after I had my 3rd C-Section. My period is very heavy now. It is fairly regular and doesn't last too long (about a week), but for that week I can barely go anywhere because of the heavy bleeding. I was wondering if there is something I can do. I don't really want to take a birth control pill again. I would rather take care of it naturally. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
I found that taking Acetominophen lightened my periods tremendously. I wouldn't recommend taking a lot of it though because there's side effects of course. Acetominophen is found in Midol and other Pre-menstrual tablets. Ibuprofen has the opposite effect and I've read that it can make it heavier.
