Heavy menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia, is a common menstrual problem affecting many women. It is characterized by excessive bleeding during menstruation that lasts longer than usual. Heavy bleeding can lead to anaemia and interfere with daily activities.
There are several treatment options available to manage heavy menstrual bleeding, including
Hormonal birth control pills, patches, or rings
Intrauterine devices (IUDs) that release hormones.
While heavy menstrual bleeding is a common menstrual problem, it can also be a sign of an underlying condition, such as uterine fibroids or endometrial cancer. Regular pelvic exams and pap tests can help detect these conditions early and improve treatment outcomes.
