Painful or Heavy Periods

Some discomfort and blood loss accompanies a woman’s monthly period. However, when the pain or the level of blood loss is excessive and interferes with daily life and activities, you are wise to find out if something else may be exacerbating these symptoms.

The three most common causes of heavy bleeding or pain during periods for women are:

  1. Hormone Imbalance
  2. Polyps and Fibroids
  3. Endometriosis

The most widely cited studies indicate over 10 million women experience menorrhagia, bleeding so heavily during their periods they have to put their lives on hold. Significant advances have been made in the treatment of heavy bleeding that don’t involve major surgery and can give women their lives back during this time of the month.
