Menorrhagia – Excessive Menstrual Bleeding


Menorrhagia is a medical condition that involves excessive bleeding during menstruation. It can be a challenging problem for women, leading to anemia and affecting their quality of life.
Menorrhagia can be caused by a range of factors, including hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids or polyps, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, blood clotting disorders, and certain medications.
The primary symptom of Menorrhagia is heavy or prolonged bleeding during menstruation, which can last for more than seven days. Other symptoms may include cramping, fatigue, shortness of breath, and frequent urination.
A healthcare provider may diagnose Menorrhagia by conducting a physical exam and reviewing the patient’s medical history. Additional tests, such as blood tests, ultrasound, or a biopsy, may be needed to determine the underlying cause of the condition.
Treatment options for Menorrhagia depend on the cause and severity of the condition. It may include medication, such as hormonal birth control or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or procedures, such as endometrial ablation or hysterectomy.


Women with Menorrhagia should take care to manage their condition by using sanitary pads or tampons, getting enough rest, and maintaining a healthy diet to prevent anemia. It’s essential to avoid taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medications during menstruation, as they can increase bleeding. Regular check-ups with a healthcare provider are also important to monitor the condition and ensure proper treatment.
