Common symptoms you will experience When you have heavy menstrual flow

According to healthline, heavy menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia, is a common condition among women that can cause significant discomfort and interfere with daily activities. Menorrhagia is defined as a menstrual cycle that produces more than 80 milliliters of blood, or lasts longer than seven days.


Some common symptoms of heavy menstrual bleeding include:

soaking through one or more tampons or pads every hour for several consecutive hours

needing to double up on pads or tampons to control bleeding

passing large blood clots

needing to change tampons or pads during the night

experiencing fatigue or shortness of breath due to blood loss

There are many possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding, including hormonal imbalances, fibroids or polyps in the uterus, thyroid disorders, and bleeding disorders. In some cases, the cause may be unknown.


Treatment options for heavy menstrual bleeding depend on the underlying cause, but may include medication, hormonal therapy, or surgery. Women with heavy menstrual bleeding should consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment for their specific situation.
