Our expert says:
There is no reason why you cannot me examined while you have a period, even if the bleeding is heavy. There are many causes of heavy periods and the treatment will depend on the cause. If, for example, you have an enlarged uterus with fibroids, one of the common causes of heavy periods, a hysterectomy will be necessary. I would suggest that you make an appointment with your gynaecologist and keep it no matter how much you are bleeding. Alternatively, you culd see your GP to assess the situation.
