Heavy bleeding during menses.... What should you know?
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.
In advanced age cancer of the uterus or cervix has to be ruled out.
Symptoms of heavy periods
- soaking a pad or tampon every 2-3 hrs or less in a day
- passage large blood clots during menstruation
- your period lasts more than seven days
- you become anemic due to excessive blood loss
How to manage excessive bleeding
1. 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.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sexually transmitted diseases or STDs are venereal diseases which occur when you have sexual contact or sexual intercourse with an infected person. In women, sexually transmitted diseases can lead to infertility, miscarriage, premature birth of the child or infection in the newborn baby.
Sexually transmitted diseases spread through transfer of body fluids like semen, vaginal secretions and blood. However, there are ways to protect yourself from STDs provided you know all the facts pertaining to sexually transmitted diseases.
- Avoid having multiple sex partners. You never know whether one of your sex partners has STD, and if he does, you will surely end up getting it.
- Sexually transmitted diseases are extremely contagious and even if you are in a monogamous relationship and your partner has STD from a previous relationship, there is 80 to 90 percent chance that you will get infected. Make sure your partner gets treated before having sex with him or her.
- You can also get sexually transmitted diseases through anal sex, and oral sex.
- A mother can pass on STD to her child during childbirth if she is infected with STD.
- Sexually transmitted diseases weaken the immune system and you are susceptible to catch other infections because of this.
- Many times STDs in women are misdiagnosed because the symptoms are not very clear. When this happens, a woman can easily end up infecting her partner.
- Lesbians are less likely to get STDs as sexually transmitted diseases are not easily spread from one woman to another.
- Bisexual men can contract STDs from their homosexual partner and pass it on to their heterosexual partner.
