Causes and Treatment of Menorrhagia



What is menorrhagia?

Menorrhagia refers to excessive bleeding during menstruation and is experienced by many women at some point in their lives. Bleeding may be very heavy during a normal length period or in the form of prolonged bleeding every cycle. The average menstrual period lasts between four and five days and produces 60 to 250 ml of blood. What is “normal” varies quite widely between different women and one woman may be used to a regular 28 day cycle with a 3-day bleed while another may menstruate every 35 days for 7 days. Both may be considered normal.

Bleeding in excess of what is considered “normal”, acceptable to the individual or even healthy may be known as menorrhagia.

Menorrhagia can include:

* Menstrual bleeding that lasts longer than seven days
* Bleeding which soaks one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours
* Needing to use “double” sanitary protection or change sanitary pads or tampons during the night
* Menstrual flow that includes large blood clots
* Heavy periods that interfere with your regular lifestyle
* Tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath due to anemia

What causes heavy periods?

In a large proportion of women who experience excessive menstrual bleeding the cause is not known. There are certain conditions that may be to blame though. These may include hormonal imbalances, fibroids, uterine cysts and polyps, some forms of cancer and certain medications. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD’s) may also lead to excessive bleeding.

In order to exclude the above causes, it is important to consult your health care provider about any changes in your menstrual cycle such as increased length of menstruation and heavier flow. Any vaginal bleeding after menopause should also lead you to seek medical advice.

In young women who have begun menstruating in the last 18 months, menorrhagia is common due to irregular ovulation. Also, for women approaching the menopause, hormonal imbalance may contribute to heavier and irregular menstruation.

What complications can heavy periods cause?

Menstrual bleeding that is prolonged or excessive over several cycles may lead to health complications if not properly managed. Iron deficiency anemia is caused by the loss of red blood cells during heavy menstrual bleeding. Anemia typically causes weakness and fatigue though women with more severe cases may even find themselves short of breath, light-headed, experiencing restless leg syndrome or a rapid heart rate. Anemia can be easily remedied and reversed with iron supplements and proper treatment of menorrhagia.

Menorrhagia is also associated with severe cramps and “period pains” as well as decreased fertility.

What is the usual treatment for menorrhagia?

Conventional treatment of menorrhagia is based on treating any underlying cause or condition or, in the many women who have no known cause, symptomatic treatment may range from oral contraceptives and other hormonal medications to surgery.
