The heavy periods suggest strongly that you are not pregnant. If they were suddenly lighter, then that would be more of an indication - as would them stopping altogether.

The headaches and the heavy periods taken together may indicate that your Birth Control - if it is oral, intravenous or patch hormonal contraceptive - no longer suits your body.

Your GP/HMO, sexual health or family planning practitioner can discuss this with you in confidence and find you a different brand or method that should remove the symptoms.

Have this dealt with immediately - there is no reason in a modern world to put up with "severe" headaches.
