Yes. Get to hospital. Is someone with you? As someone said anything more than a pad an hour is a cause for concern. Call an ambulance if you need to, heavy blood loss should not be taken lightly. Keep hold of the used pads / clots if you can. The hospital can weigh them.
And by the way that much bleeding is called "bleeding" not a heavy period. Ive learnt the difference after many years of this. Make sure you see your doctor and get some help with this even tho it's slowed down. Us women have to stop being okay with these so called extremely heavy periods. And we need to know it's not a heavy period. There is actually an imbalance going on (or a problem) and we can get help for this, so please be seen and get help. Sorry I'm passionate about this after many years of suffering and accepting doctors views that heavy bleeding and clots were ok/normal. They are not.
