  1. Eye opener for ladies, take nothing for granted

  2. I sympathize with ladies that experience heavy flow, but can this be combated? Are there drugs that can be administered by a physician?

  3. Yes there are medications to be administered by a doctor after research has been done. It's an uncomfortable shoe to wear that is why the needful should be done as soon as possible.
