HEAVY period - ways to contain the flow - I posted here about my incredibly long, annoying, and abnormal period. It's been pretty light the last couple of days, but when I woke up this morning I was bleeding everywhere. I put in a super plus tampon, and got ready for work. When I got on my break (about 2 1/2 hours after putting the tampon in) I had bled through my pants again (thank God they are black pants!) I put another tampon in, and so the cycle continues. I've had to change my super plus tampon every 2 hours or so to keep from bleeding through my clothes. I'm working a double shift tomorrow (12:30pm-10:30pm - well I guess it's today since it's past midnight...) so I won't have a lot of time to clean myself up if I leak, and I may not get to change every 2 hours. Is there ANYTHING I can do to slow the bleeding down, or something I can use to keep from leaking? I do have a Diva Cup, but I cramp when I bleed this heavy (one of the few times I do get cramps), and the Diva Cup seems to make them worse. I really can't wear pads right now because I don't have underwear that fits (been going commando until I can find some that don't ride up so much). ANY help with this is appreciated. I'm going to the free clinic on Tuesday (tomorrow) to get checked out, so I just need to slow the bleeding down until then. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm really starting to get freaked out over this whole situation. Anyone have this problem and get checked out? What was the issue? Worst/best case scenario? Anything to put my mind at ease, please comment.
