Question by  Pam (21)

Does heavier cramping mean heavier bleeding during your period?


Answer by  lunadragonfly (160)

They are not always related but can be. Some conditions, such as fibroids and endometriosis, commonly include both of those symptoms.


Answer by  jdj2 (24)

No it does not. It just means your uterus is working harder to expel the old uterine lining. Sometimes you will have more or less "bleeding" during this time, it varies from person to person


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Not necessarily, bleeding and the heaviness of the bleeding is a direct result with how thick your endomentral linning is.


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

Not always. However in most cases Women report having heavier bleeding when they have heavy cramps. Personally every time I get cramping I don't bleed any heavier than normal.

No, it does not. Stronger cramping may be your bodies way of working harder to get the egg into the cervix. Also really strong cramps are actually not normal, it is best to make an appointment with your doctor if they get stronger or they accompany each and every period.
