Recently my flow has become much heavier (almost double what it used to be), but I am 29, everything else health-wise is normal, and my cycle is very regular. Should I be concerned?
Your period quality and consistency can change with time so it might be normal that your flow is heavier than it was before. Nonetheless, I always encourage my patients whenever there is a big change to their period symptoms to check in with their primary care doctor or gynecologist to make sure there is nothing else that could be wrong. In this instance, it might make sense to pursue an ultrasound to rule out fibroids or endometriosis.
