What could be wrong if you spotted for 3 days and then it stopped but suddenly you had a period that was so heavy that a tampon didn't last more than an hour?

Hi Heavy bleeding like this needs to be investigated by your doctor. Bleeding that is so heavy that it requires you to change your pad or tampon every 1-2 hours, is too heavy and definitely needs to be told to your doctor.

Spotting is normal when you're due your period, menstruation doesn't have an on/off switch, it takes time for the uterine lining to start shedding so it will start slowly. Your period is heavy but not necessarily unusually heavy and unless you have other symptoms there's no reason to think there's anything wrong. If you're leaking through an ultra absorbency tampon within an hour then your period is unusually heavy and you should seek medical attention.

Yes, a period is a result of hormones and wearing or not wearing a tampon has nothing to do with it. Never ever wear a tampon without having a period. Read the warnings on the tampon box because it tells you not to do that.

I hope you are not wearing a tampon when not on a period. This is unhealthy and if you are just starting your period you should not be using a tampon until you are older. The tampon box gives written as well as a diagram of how to put in a tampon. Follow the directions and read the warnings. This is very important.

Wearing a tampon when not on a period is unhealthy and unnecessary. It creates the perfect conditions for the toxic shock syndrome and for infection. The toxic shock symdrome has killed women and the tampon box gives a warning about it and wearing a tampon when not on a period.
