The average woman loses about two to three tablespoons of blood during her period. Your periods may be lighter or heavier than the average amount. What is normal for you may not be the same for someone else. Also, the flow may be lighter or heavier from month to month.

Your periods may also change as you get older. Some women have heavy bleeding during perimenopause, the transition to menopause. Symptoms of heavy menstrual bleeding may include:

  • Bleeding through one or more pads or tampons every one to two hours

  • Passing blood clots larger than the size of quarters

  • Bleeding that often lasts longer than eight days

 

How often should I change my pad, tampon, menstrual cup, sponge, or period panties?

 

Follow the instructions that came with your period product. Try to change or rinse your feminine hygiene product before it becomes soaked through or full.

  • Most women change their pads every few hours.

  • A tampon should not be worn for more than 8 hours because of the risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS)

  • Menstrual cups and sponges may only need to be rinsed once or twice a day.

  • Period panties (underwear with washable menstrual pads sewn in) can usually last about a day, depending on the style and your flow.

 

Use a product appropriate in size and absorbency for your menstrual bleeding. The amount of menstrual blood usually changes during a period. Some women use different products on different days of their period, depending on how heavy or light the bleeding is.
