Menorrhagia is the medical term for menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding. Although heavy menstrual bleeding is a common concern, most women don’t experience blood loss severe enough to be defined as menorrhagia.
Menorrhagia is one of the most commonly reported gynecologic complaints. In half of the women diagnosed an underlying cause cannot be identified, but it can be sign of a serious problem.
WHAT CAUSES MENORRHAGIA?
Menorrhagia may happen when a menstrual cycle does not produce an egg, leading to a hormone imbalance. Other underlying causes for menorrhagia may be:
Ovarian dysfunction: where the ovary does not release an egg, no progesterone is produced. Pelvic inflammatory diseases: where an infection of the reproductive organs can have severe complaints. Some diseases related to female genital system: uterine fibroids, uterine polyps, adenomyosis etc.
SYMPTOMS OF MENORRHAGIA:
Signs and symptoms of menorrhagia may include: soaking through one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour. Bleeding for longer than a week is the key symptom of the disease. There is restriction of daily activities due to heavy menstrual flow. Symptoms of anaemia, such as tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath is also present due to maximum loss of blood. When much bleeding occurs, women need to use double sanitary napkin to control menstrual flow.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories are used to treat menorrhagia, and they can help reduce blood loss. However, NSAIDS can also increase the risk of bleeding.
Surgical interventions like dilation and curettage (D&C), uterine artery embolization and myomectomy are done but with great risk of complications.
