<p>I am on the 16th day of my period. Yes, I believe I am perimenopausal, but this is the first time I have gone this long. So far it has been a light period. I called my practioner on day 13 and she said to give it another week then come in if it is still going as long as it remains light. Well tonight I am soooo heavy that I am not even going 10 minutes between changes- both a super tampon and a maxi-pad. How long should I give it before deciding that I am bleeding too heavily and need help?</p>

<p>Yes, I think you should go to the ER. The normal advice is that if you're soaking through more than one thick pad in an hour, you're bleeding too much.</p>

<p>Yeah, go to ER if this lasts more than another half an hour.  If you feel dizzy at all get someone to drive you.</p>

<p>Sorry my computer died and I couldn't update. I waited another hour and it finally slowed down. I am on day 18 still, but back to being light. Thank you for the responses.</p>
