Very Heavy Menstruation

My first menstruation after 27 months has been tremendously heavy, though no pain at all. I have always had heavy periods. But this time, it is exceptionally heavy. It’s so heavy that I have to change my pad every hourly. Last night I stained the bed badly. Fortunately there’s a plastic sheet underneath the bedsheet and the blood was prevented from seeping into the mattress. I had expected this first menses after 27 months of ‘drought’ to be really heavy. It’s like a heavy downpour after going through a period of drought! I weighed myself this morning and was surprised to see that I am now 1.5kg lighter! WOW, I can’t believe the blood that I had lost is 1.5kg heavy!!
