About Menorrhagia

WHAT IS MENORRHAGIA?3

  • Menorrhagia is the medical term for menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding.
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding is a subjective finding, making the exact problem definition difficult.
  • It is one of the most common gynaecologic complaints:
    • According to the World Health Organization, 18 million females worldwide aged 30-55 years perceive their menstrual bleeding to be excessive.
    • Heavy menstrual bleeding must however be distinguished clinically from other common gynaecologic causes of bleeding, e.g. pregnancy, anovulatory bleeding, fibroids, etc.
    • Heavy menstrual bleeding can lead to anaemia and low quality of life.

SYMPTOMS & DIAGNOSIS OF MENORRHAGIA3

  • Soaking through one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours.
  • Needing to wake up to change sanitary protection during the night.
  • Passing blood clots.
  • Symptoms of anaemia, such as tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath may be experienced with severe bleeding.

TREATMENT OF MENORRHAGIA3

  • Therapeutic treatment of menorrhagia depends on the cause and seriousness of the bleeding.
  • Main therapeutic options are:
    • Hormonal treatment (eg, contraceptives) – which have been shown to reduce menstrual flow volume.
    • Non-hormonal therapies, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which reduce menstrual bleeding.
