Menorrhagia(heavy menstrual bleeding) 

In this video, our expert gynecologist Dr. Heena Chawla is talking about Menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding. 

Heavy menstrual bleeding/Heavy bleeding period

One more question that is generally put up to us  in the  OPD is regarding women having periods for a prolonged period. Females have periods  for almost one and a half to two months continuously. Some have heavy bleeding, and in a few, bleeding stops for 2-3 days and then starts again. So this is called heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia.

One should never ignore this heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia and one must visit their gynecologist. One needs to get some tests done so that the doctor can identify the reason behind this irregularity in menstrual patterns.

Heavy menstrual bleeding problems/risk factors

There may be a  problem of hormonal imbalance or a thyroid problem, or it’s the fibroids due to which there is heavy bleeding. And it could be adenomyosis or endometrial hyperplasia in which the innermost layer of the uterus, the endometrium, gets very thick.

So there are different reasons due to which they have heavy bleeding for a longer period of  time. In this, some basic blood tests and hormone tests are performed to determine the reason. It is self-evident that if one has heavy bleeding, the woman might lose blood, which will affect the quality of life. One may have a feeling of tiredness and anemia during periods. Doing even a little amount of work  can lead to shortness of breath, which are all  signs of anemia . So if any female is suffering from this problem, she must consult a doctor.

Thank you
