What makes heavy period bleeding worse?

Excessive SugarEating sugar can make heavy bleeding during your period worse!  Eating the sugar while being sedentary during your period can cause insulin to be released.  Insulin, indirectly, increases your bleeding during your period.  Sugar can cause such heavy menstrual bleeding that the blood may gush out and cause quite an embarrassing and scary situation.

Sugar has made some of our clients begin to bleed heavily within a matter of minutes after it is eaten.  Monitor your sugar intake and see if you tend to have heavier bleeding after eating it.  You may find it helpful to minimize your sugar/carbohydrate intake when you have your period.

B vitamins are helpful with heavy bleeding during your period because they decrease sugar cravings.  If you just have to have some sugar, put plenty of fiber with it to cause it to enter you bloodstream slowly.  Then take your B vitamins to try to stop the sugar cravings from returning.  Doing this can prevent the excessive bleeding or keep it from being prolonged. Your body requires a good multivitamin to go with the B Vitamins.  You body also requires all of the B vitamins in order for this to work as they work in concert with one another.  Of hundreds of brands tested, we have only found 3 brands of B vitamins that we have found to actually work well: New Sun’s B-Complex, Herbal Healer’s B-100 and Shaklee’s B-Complex.

When do I seek professional assistance with heavy periods?

Tianya S. Clark, B.S., CNHPHeavy bleeding during your period can cause excessive blood loss and many other symptoms if not handled properly.  We suggest you consider immediate assistance if blood is gushing, if you are beginning to look pale or feel weak.  If you tend to have heavy bleeding during your period regularly, then monitoring the possibility of anemia would also be a good idea.  In these situations, you may need to do more than just stop the bleeding.  Keep in mind that with each once of blood loss precious nutrients were also lost.  Therefore, you may need more than assistance with building up your blood levels.  You may also need assistance with building your nutrient levels back up.
