I had really bad cramps last night and ever since I have gone through a super tampon every hour. Lots of clots as well. This is making me a little nervous. I am wondering if the cause for this is that all natural hormonal balance stuff I was taking. Has anyone taking balance stuff, etc. had this issue? Sorry for the
certain herbs and supplements will make AF heavier and harder. I know Vitex seems to make mine worse if I don't take aspirin to counter act that specific bonus to the herb (most people who turn to vitex need the lining boost, I.. do not).

I dont have any advice for you just sympathy. I went through the same thing a few days ago. My second period off the pill and it was a nightmare for about a day and a half. Hopefully the heaviness doesn't last long.
The hormone balancer has chasteberry, black colosh, and a couple other herbs like wort? This is horrible. I had to run out to target on my break to get more tampons. I bought a box of ClearBlue tests because I feel off. Hot flashes included in this. >:/
My first period back in June was also the one that I was taking Vitex to induce, it was AWFUL. Similar to yours, it was like 1.5 hours at most that I could leave a super tampon in for. And really bad cramps.
So it could definitely be the herbs you are taking. I hope it eases up soon -- I'm sure it will in a few hours.
Update, today is much much better!!! Holy cow I thought it wasn't going to stop yesterday! I went home and it still hadn't slowed so I just had a beer and sat on the couch. Apparently that's what helped it because I was "normal" after that. The digital O came in the mail yesterday and I am not gonna lie, it's a little fancy for me hehehe
