Welcome to ehealthforum.
Heavy periods along with changes in bleeding pattern could be due to many reasons. She should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist for a thorough check (examination and investigations) to look for the cause for her symptoms. It is difficult to comment on the diagnosis without examining her and without further tests.
Take care.
