I start with the caution that I am not a doctor. I have read that anaemia could cause heavy blood flow. To control this, please eat a lot of green leafy vegetables for the iron content along with sources of Vitamin C such as lemon juice or amla to ensure absorption of the iron into the body. Drumstick leaves are rich in iron and available across South India. Make sure you have at least once a day with your food, cooked in any way that you like.

And go see a doctor. Stress also causes heavy blood flow - you could simply be stressed that you are bleeding too much and that then becomes a loop!
