Overly heavy or long lasting menstrual periods not only are uncomfortable and disruptive, but can also be dangerous. In some cases anemia may be caused and a blood transfusion may be needed. There are a number of things that may contribute to an abnormally heavy menstrual flow from hormone imbalances to polyps, infection to fibroid, blood disorder to cancer or even certain types of medication. It is extremely important to find out as early as possible the source of the issue to get the appropriate treatment plan in place. Diagnosis is done through a pelvic exam, culture, ultrasound, biopsy and blood tests.
