Obesity and heavy periods

Hi Doc

My periods is so heavy I get the size of a 2x R5 coins clots and about 3-6 clots like this a day plus small ones. Its driving me nuts. My gynae cant find any physical reason for this. When I look at this I find that every time I gained weight my cycle got worse is this possible? I''m 26 kg overweight.

Yes weight gain can affect hormones and so affect the cycle.

Best wishes
