Heavy or Painful Periods

Heavy periods (menorrhagia) are a common problem and are experienced by about 1 in 5 women. Constant changes of sanitary protection during a period with flooding and the passage of blood clots are frequently described symptoms. It is not unusual to feel tired and drained during your period. You may find that your periods are having an unwanted impact on your family, work & social life.

The most common cause for heavy periods especially in women aged 35 to 45 is a hormonal imbalance. It is important to exclude other causes such as fibroids, polyps, infection and chronic illnesses.
