How Heavy is Too Heavy?

First of all, I'm new here, so let me share my history:

Have been trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years. Irregular periods, lack of ovulation. About 7 months ago, I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease.

I began taking thyroid medication in February, and since meds, my cycles have been more regular (as opposed to skipping months at a time, I hadn't missed a month). In August, after another perfect cycle, my period came. But, it was unusual. It was extremely heavy. It lasted for 2 weeks, and I lost sleep several nights because I had to change my tampon every 20 minutes. Going to sleep was a joke. I soaked through everything. Besides, the pain was so terrible it kept me up anyway. I never saw a doctor, like I should have. I was hoping to just wait it out.

After that nightmare period, I had a 50 day cycle, which brought me a somewhat normal period. However, this cycle was only 20 days.

Why the sudden changes? Was a period that heavy much too heavy?
