If you are soaking a pad every 20 minutes, then you need to go to the Emergency room so as to prevent yourself from loosing too much blood which is called anemia. If you are pregnant, this could be a miscarriage, this could be hormonal such as a thyroid problem, or a polyp, an infection - so you might need high dose estrogen by intravenous, a D&C, and you might need blood - but you need to be evaluated, especially if you are continuing to lose a lot of blood...
