Menorrhagia can be caused by hormonal imbalance, abnormal growth, or other changes in the uterus. It can also be due to problems with your blood’s ability to clot, due to a pelvic inflammatory disease, or even due to certain medications.
Sometimes heavy periods may go away on their own, but often they can be a sign that your body needs help in battling a hormonal imbalance, an underlying health issue or even stress.
Left untreated, menorrhagia can interfere with your life. Also, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding can cause iron deficiency anemia which can leave you feeling weak, tired or out of breath.
It’s always good to talk to a doctor because menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding can be a sign of an underlying health condition.
