My period is really heavy; what can I do to change that?

Many women take birth control to regulate their periods. The benefits of this would be to potentially stop ovulation, change the lining of the uterus as well as changing the cervical mucus. This can result in lighter, more regular and even nonexistent periods [8] (some women don’t get a period while on birth control, with the exception of Paragard users which is non-hormonal). It can also help relieves PMS symptoms and acne too all while preventing pregnancy.
