Manage Heavy Bleeding in 4 Easy Ways

Manage Heavy Bleeding in 4 Easy Ways

Heavy or prolonged bleeding during menses is medically known as 'menorrhagia'. It is more common as you approach menopause but can occur at any age. The bleeding has to be severe enough to interfere with your daily activities.

The cause could be hormonal, pregnancy complications, bleeding disorder or a structural lesion like a fibroid, polyp, endometriosis or adenomyosis.

In advanced age cancer of the uterus or cervix has to be ruled out.

Symptoms of heavy periods

  1. Soaking a pad or tampon every 2-3 hrs or less in a day
  2. Passage large blood clots during menstruation
  3. Your period lasts more than seven days
  4. You become anemic due to excessive blood loss

How to manage excessive bleeding

  1. Maintain a record: Maintain a record of the no of days and pattern of heavy bleeding.
  2. Increase your intake of fluids and salt: You should increase your intake of fluids and especially salty fluids during heavy menstruation. You can have vegetable juices like tomato juice as well as salty broths during such times. This will help you especially when your blood volume goes down (which is characterized by dizziness or pounding of heart) when you get up after lying down. Your body would need more than four to six cups on such a day.
  3. Increase the intake of iron: Increase your iron intake through natural sources like green vegetables, egg yolks, red meat, liver and dried fruits like raisins and prunes. You can also start an iron tablet once a day for faster recovery from anemia.
  4. Visit your gynecologist: A good history, few blood tests, and a simple ultrasound generally leads to the diagnosis. Sometimes a biopsy is required to rule out cancer. Multiple new drugs have been added in the last few years which have avoided the need for surgery.

An early diagnosis ends up with better results. Hence, it is important to act early. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hi doctor, If I have a problem with a slip disk, then I will get some information about it?

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, DNB - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Ghaziabad
Hi, slip disc is not itself the problem, problem is the symptoms that you are having because of slip disc. If slip disc is asymptomatic then do spine extension exercises, avoid squatting and cross leg sitting, forward bending and heavy weight lifting. But if you are having pain in back or pain is radiating to your leg then you will have to take medications under guidance of an Orthopaedician. For any further queries you can contact me on text, phone or video consult via Lybrate itself. Take Care.

Tips to Prevent Herniated Discs

Tips to Prevent Herniated Discs

Our spinal disk resembles a jelly donut, wherein the softer insides are protected by the hard exterior. Sometimes, as a result of some injury or an accident the jelly slips out, leading to an extremely painful condition which in medical parlance is known as herniated disc. The pain that you are subjected to, during herniated disc, occurs as the nerves nearby are damaged due to the concussion.

Apart from pain, herniated disc is preceded by other symptoms, some of them are:

  1. Pain in the arm or the leg: Depending on which part of the body you have suffered the herniated disc, in the neck or in your lower back, this condition is succeeded by intense pain either near the buttocks or near the shoulders. It goes without saying that this pain increases sharply with movement.
  2. NumbnessThat part of the body where the nerves are damaged due to herniated disc often becomes numb and has no sensation whatsoever.
  3. Weakness: Due to herniated disc, the muscles become weak that considerably impairs and curbs mobility.

However, there are various ways by which you can prevent a herniated disc. Some of them are:

  1. Exercise: Exercise in any form and even for a short while yields several benefits. Your body invariably gains momentum and agility. If you exercise daily, your spine becomes more stable and strong, thereby preventing a possible herniated disc.
  2. Maintaining the right and good postureA lot depends on the way you sit and walk, in fact more than you can imagine. If you sit badly, it exerts a pressure on the spine and the discs. Subsequently, a good posture does the very reverse and curbs chances of a herniated disc in the future.
  3. Keep a tab on the weight: It is always healthy to maintain the right weight, the one that keeps you away from the onset of various diseases. If you are overweight, it puts more pressure on the spine disk, thereby increasing the risk of developing a herniated disc.

Uterine Prolapse - 6 Most Common Risk Factors!

MBBS, DGO, Ceritification in Minimal Invasive Surgery

Uterine Prolapse - 6 Most Common Risk Factors!

Uterine prolapse is a condition which occurs due to a weakness in the muscles and ligaments of the pelvic floor which are responsible for supporting the uterus. This condition results in the bulging out of the uterus from the vagina. The continuous stretching in the muscles of the pelvic floor due to the lifting of heavy things might initiate uterine prolapse. If you suffer from severe uterine prolapse, the doctors might suggest laparoscopic surgery to get rid of the pain. Lack of diagnosis might form infected ulcers in the pelvic regions.

Risk Factors
The risk factors that can trigger a uterine prolapse are as follows:

  1. You are more prone to suffering from uterine prolapse as you age because aging causes a significant reduction in the estrogen (the hormone responsible for the overall development of the pelvic muscles) levels of the body.
  2. If your pelvic muscles and the adjoined tissues have suffered sustained damage during pregnancy or childbirth, you have a higher risk of suffering from uterine prolapse.
  3. Obesity, sustained episodes of constipation or coughing make you more vulnerable to uterine prolapse.
  4. In women, estrogen levels reduce significantly after menopause.
  5. A woman who has undergone vaginal childbirth multiple times can suffer from uterine prolapse.
  6. Having undergone surgery in the pelvic region and experiencing severe pain during excretion raises the risk levels even more.

Symptoms
The symptoms of uterine prolapse vary with the severity of the condition. If the prolapse is a minor one, there will be no symptoms. But severe uterine prolapse might bring with it the following symptoms:

  1. Severe pain in the lower back region along with significant problems during urination such as leakage of urine.
  2. Bulging out of tissues from the vagina.
  3. Recurrent instances of constipation and abnormal discharges from the vagina.
  4. Infection in the bladder and experiencing severe problems during sex intercourse.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Blood and sugar is well taken care of before, during and after surgery. If the surgery is essential and patient is fit for anaesthesia, age is no bar for surgery.
