Heavy Menstrual Problems And Treatment Options

The duration and severity of monthly menstrual period may vary from woman to woman. In a normal menstrual cycle, the average woman loses about 40 ml of blood during menstruation, which last around four to seven days. However for some women, bleeding may go on excessively heavy and goes on for longer than normal, according to health experts. Too much and prolonged menstrual bleeding is known as the menorrhagia. Too much bleeding may become the root cause for other health problems, such as anemia.
Menorrhagia can be caused by a number of contributory factors although the real causes remained unknown. The common factors that trigger excessive menstrual bleeding are the following:

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Dysfunction of the ovaries
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Polyps
  • Adenomyosis
  • Pregnancy complication
  • Cancer
  • Inherited bleeding disorders

In some cases, medication is not necessary. If there are no serious effects caused by heavy menstruation then it is rest assured that it can change over time for some people.
However for some, treatment is required to prevent further complications. There are a number of treatment options that lessens menstrual bleeding, including over-the-counter drugs. If medications do not work, surgery may well in women who wish to treat heavy bleeding.
Hysterectomy is sometimes recommended by surgeons to women with severe menstrual bleeding problems. The uterus is removed during surgery.
In the recent years, hysterectomu can be performed with the help of a surgical robotic system. With robotic assistance, a surgeon can reduce blood loss, shorten hospitalization, accelerate recovery, and quicker return to normal activities. However, there are serious complications that are tied up with this unique surgery. Despite controversy, robotic surgery is continued to used by surgeon in different complex surgeries.
