I tried cloth pads but just ended up with a big mess, even with heavy flow pads.

Right now for example, I will soak through a super plus tampon and leak a big spot onto a pad in less than an hour.

I have been taking Motrin (800 mg every 6 hours) and that helps, but only somewhat. Not sure how it works, but it does decrease blood flow.
