Menorrhagia is a condition in which a woman has heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding. It is defined as losing more than 80 milliliters (or about two and a half ounces) of blood during each menstrual period, having periods lasting longer than seven days, or both.
The causes of menorrhagia can be hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids, polyps, adhesions, hormonal disorders, such as thyroid problems or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or bleeding disorders.
The treatment for menorrhagia depends on the underlying cause. In some cases, medications, such as hormonal birth control pills or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can help regulate menstrual cycles and reduce heavy bleeding. If a hormonal imbalance is the cause, hormone therapy may be recommended. If uterine fibroids or polyps are the cause, surgery may be necessary.
It is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, as prompt treatment can help manage symptoms and prevent complications.
