Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne with 30+ years of experience. I can help you today.

I'm sorry that you're having this worry. The combination of heavy bleeding and dizziness makes me wonder if your getting anemic from the bleeding. In that case, it would be best to go to the ER. If the bleeding is actually not terribly heavy but just heavier than you expected, it may be something else. If also having any pain, it would be best to head in for evaluation.

Please reply with questions. I want to be sure you have the most helpful information for your situation.
