Heavy Periods Treatment
Severe or excessive menstrual bleeding can be a painful problem and is one of the biggest reasons women visiting their General Practitioner (GP). Each year, one in three women states that their period is heavy, and one in twenty women consults with their doctor about this issue. Heavy periods are also called menorrhagia and are normal for women.
Symptoms of Heavy Periods
The average total amount of blood lost during period is 35 ml. Bleeding is considered abnormal if 80 ml or more is lost. If you lose more than 80ml during your period, you are at risk of anaemia. Some women often lose more blood than that. Irregular heavy menstruation and bleeding during or after sexual intercourse can indicate a serious medical condition. Other symptoms to watch out for include long-term fatigue, light-headedness, poor sleep patterns, and shortness of breath.
Causes of Heavy Periods
In more than half of the cases, if menstrual bleeding is severe, there is no obvious cause. However, it is sometimes associated with the presence of underlying diseases.
