How do you know when bleeding during your period is abnormally heavy? The easiest way to know if you are experiencing menorrhagia is to take note of how often you need to change your pad or tampon. If your period is heavy enough to require changing pads or tampons more often than every one or two hours, or if you have a period that lasts more than a full week, you may be experiencing menorrhagia -- the medical term for excessive menstrual bleeding. Find out more about the causes of heavy menstrual bleeding.
