Heavy period?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I use cloth pads and mestrual cups exclusively and I have never bled through a pad or completely filled my cup before, especially on the first day of my period. 

But today was the first day of my cycle and I bled through my pad and then through my underwear and onto my pants. So I put my cup in instead, but later had trouble removing it because it was so full that compressing it was very difficult to do. I put a pad on after that because of how much trouble I had removing it and have now (an hour later) leaked through the pad. I’m probably overreacting, but is this normal? I have PCOS, if that matters. It’s the heaviest I’ve ever had, as well.
