. All women occasionally suffer from abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding. Fortunately, even when seemingly bleeding is excessive, it is not always enough to be defined as a medical condition. How could you understand that bleeding during your monthly period is strong? The easiest way to determine if you suffer from menorrhagia (the medical name of heavy menstrual bleeding) is to detect how often you change your tampon. If you do this at intervals of less than two hours or if your period lasts more than a week, then you really likely suffer from menorrhagia for which treatment is needed.
Here are a few causes of heavy menstrual bleeding:
First, it can be caused by hormonal imbalance in the years of maturity or at the menopause is the most common cause of excessive menstrual bleeding. During adolescence, after the first monthly period, and several years before menopause, when menstruation stops, hormone levels in women are hesitant, and this often leads to heavy uterine bleeding during the period. It is possible to treat menorrhagia due to hormonal imbalances with birth control pills or other hormone medications basis.
Uterine fibrous tumors are another common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Usually fibrous tumors are benign uterine entities that often occur in 30 50 years old women.
Another reason can be polyps on the cervix. They are small, formed on the surface or the lining of the cervix or endometrial wall of the channel and displayed through the opening of the cervix. Cause of these polyps is unclear. However, they often result from infection and are associated with inadequate reaction to high levels of estrogen. From this condition typically suffer women at age of 20 and who have already given birth once. Treatment consists of surgical removal of polyps and intake of antibiotics against possible postoperative infections.
Inflammatory disease is the next possible reason for menorrhagia. This is an infection of organs, which affect the uterus, fallopian tubes and cervix. Inflammatory disease is usually caused by sexually transmitted disease. However, sometimes occurs after childbirth, miscarriage or other gynecological manipulations.
Cancer of the cervix is cancer that develops as a result of degradation or excessive multiplication of cells in the cervix, causing damage to healthy tissue. Human papillomavirus is responsible for more than 90% of cases of cancer of the cervix. Operational condition is treated by chemotherapy and radiotherapy through.
Sometimes contraceptions are cause of heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia.
Women who suffer from serious and prolonged menstrual periods while using such devices, should eliminate them and to consider an alternative method of birth control.
Prolonged and excessive bleeding occurs when it cannot stop by itself. There are several different types of disorders of the blood vessels, but the most common among these is von Willebrand syndrome.
If you notice that your menstrual bleeding is stronger than usual, you need to consult your gynecologist. The reason for this may be insignificant, but may also be a more serious problem, which must be taken early.
