Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

Is this the first time period is very heavy? Or it is always heavy?

Since when is the urinary burning?

Were any investigations done?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No investigations first painful heavy period and only burning since period started two days ago
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 9 months ago.

The heavy period and urinary burning together can be explained by uterus fibroid. Fibroid is a benign growth. It may cause pressure on the bladder so burning may occur.

There can be separate issues. Bladder burning can be due to urinary tract infection (UTI). This is managed by plenty of fluids and Azo which is a urinary analgesic. Cranberry juice or its extract tablets too (all are over the counter / without prescription) would help.

The heavy period can be due to;

1) Fibroid uterus

2) Uterine polyp

3) Endocervical polyp

4) Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism

5) Prolactin abnormalities

6) Endometrial hyperplasia

7) Other hormonal aberrations

8) Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
