    Nervous about period change
    confusedinnashville posted:
    My period started to night and it has me concerned. My flow is normally heavy, but the blood is thick and dark. Tonight, it is bright red and I have soak three pair of underwear, my pj bottoms, three pads and my sheets. Whenever I move, it gushes out. While cleaning myself up, it dripped puddles onto the bathroom floor. Could this be a sign of the onset of menopause? I'm 44. I've also experience an almost watery discharge for seemingly no reason a few times.

    Heavy bleeding like that is not normal and needs to be checked out ASAP. If your doctor is not open, go to the ER.
