Symptom #2: Menorrhagia

Menorrhagia, or heavy menstrual bleeding, is excessive and abnormal uterine bleeding. Some causes of menorrhagia are structural anomalies of the reproductive tract, cancer of the reproductive tract, bleeding disorders, anovulation, uterine fibroids, and adenomyosis, among others.

Heavy menstrual bleeding occurs when the total menstrual flow is more than 80 milliliters per cycle. Menorrhagia can result in shortness of breath, fatigue, and weakness. Patients can be given iron and folic acid supplements if the anemia is mild. Definitive treatment depends on the underlying cause of menorrhagia.
