Heavy period after sterilization
Hi Doc

I just want to know is it normal to have such heavy period after I am sterilized. It is so heavy I have to change about 5 times a day and i use sanitary towls for heavy flow, and it comes with lots of blood clods, it was not like that before I sterilized.

Thanks for your response

If you were on hormonal contraception before, this tends to make periods lighter. It is probably a good idea to have a gynae check-up to see if there are any problems with your uterus.
