Ways to manage or stop heavy periods

 8 months ago       133 Views

The medical name for a heavy menstrual flow is menorrhagia. A person with menorrhagia may need to change their pads or tampons every hour for many hours in a row. Blood clots the size of a quarter or larger may regularly appear in the menstrual flow.

Heavy periods can interrupt a person's life and take a toll on the body. A person may feel very tired and experience continual pain and cramping. In some people, heavy periods lead to too much blood loss and cause anemia.

Anyone with menorrhagia should talk to a doctor to identify any underlying cause.

In addition to working with a doctor, some home remedies and supportive tools can help reduce symptoms and make a heavy period easier to manage.
