Menorrhagia

Menorrhagia

 

Abnormal uterine bleeding is a general category that includes any bleeding from menstrual or nonmenstrual causes.Hypomenorrhea is abnormally light menstrual periods. Menorrhagia (meno = month,[2]rrhagia = excessive flow/discharge) is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period. Metrorrhagia is bleeding at irregular times, especially outside the expected intervals of the menstrual cycle. If there is excessive menstrual and uterine bleeding other than that caused by menstruation,menometrorrhagia (meno = prolonged, metro = uterine, rrhagia = excessive flow/discharge) may be diagnosed. Causes may be due to abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Depending upon the cause, it may be associated with abnormally painful periods.
