Heavy Periods: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Heavy menstrual bleeding or menorrhagia is associated with the soaking of a tampon or pad every hour or less than that during every menstrual cycle. For women, heavy periods are a huge impediment to their usual lifestyle. This is not the only problem related to heavy menstrual bleeding. It is more than just a schedule buster. This can also lead to iron-deficient anemia which is the most common threat related to heavy periods. It is true that most cases of iron deficiency are treated with oral iron supplements, on the other hand there is another fact that severe vaginal bleeding in women makes her entire volume of blood drop, causing severe fatigue, heart palpitations and shortness of breath that require immediate hospitalization. Most health care specialists suggest a medical therapy before moving to other alternatives which are generally more invasive, in case of a need of relief from heavy periods. Depending on your medical history, your doctor will discuss with you certain medical therapies.

There are a few medical options available for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding. These include the intake of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, progestin, oral contraceptives, danazol, intrauterine device (IUD), and gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH agonists). Surical options comprise of hysterectomy, and endometrial ablation.

How is the treatment done?

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which involve ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) are known to work by bringing down the level of prostaglandins which are hormone-like chemicals that disrupts the clotting of blood. Studies have found that they reduce the blood flow to an average of 25 – 35 percent. Danazol on the other hand, is a male testosterone that works by blocking the estrogen action in your body. As a result your periods will stop in four to six weeks.

The majority of women facing heavy periods do not need a vaginal hysterectomy, still there are many women who opt for this surgical methodology which is also a frequent recommendation by specialists as a treatment option. This procedure is characterized by the removal of uterus and as a result the periods stop. While this procedure is quite effective in ending the menstrual bleeding, hysterectomy is a huge surgical procedure that requires hospitalization and several weeks of recuperation. In addition, this process is linked with multiple complications (infection being the most common out of all). In such a case, you must fully consult your health care provider to explain the potential risks and benefits associated to the surgery, along with how the process is carried out. Though certain women prefer hysterectomy to all the remaining surgical processes, you must be fully assured by understanding all the available options before making a choice.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

A woman with a normal sized uterus is eligible for the surgical procedure of vaginal hysterectomy. Women who do not want to have children in future are eligible for receiving both the medical and surgical treatment.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

A woman who has a large sized uterus is not eligible for the surgical procedure of vaginal hysterectomy. Girls under the age of 18 are precluded from receiving the treatment. Women who are planning to have a family in future and bear children are also precluded from receiving the treatment. Patients with an underlying medical condition which is still untreated are not eligible for the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs help to reduce pain. But some of the side-effects of using these drugs are indigestion and other gut problems, headaches, dizziness and drowsiness. On the other hand, the side effects of the surgical procedure include infection, injury to nearby organs, heavy bleeding, pain during intercourse, early menopause (in case the ovaries are removed), blood clot in the lungs or legs, and breathing or heart problems.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Be sure to follow the instructions of your health care provider. Your gynecologist will advise you to take proper rest, but you also need to move here and there as often as you can. Taking short walks and increasing the distance of your walks gradually will prove beneficial after the surgical treatment. Your doctor will ask you to strictly avoid lifting heavy objects until he finally allows you to do so. You must not put anything in your vagina for the first 6 weeks. This includes sexual intercourse, douching, and the usage of tampons. After full recovery, you should regularly visit your gynecologist for general health care tips and routine examinations. Depending on the reason behind the surgical process, there may a need of cervical cancer screening and pelvic exams.

How long does it take to recover?

Treatment through medications will be comparatively longer than that of surgery. It may take 4 to 6 weeks to recover from medications like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. You are likely to be asleep during the whole surgical process and will spend the next 48 hours in the hospital. A significant pain will be felt for the first 24 hours followed by a mild pain for the next 10 days. It usually takes 4 weeks for full recovery from this surgery.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The cost of the surgical procedure ranges between Rs. 1,50,000 to Rs. 1,85,000. On the other hand, the cost of medications ranges between Rs. 50 to Rs. 500.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Only the result for the surgical process will be permanent. Treatment through medications and drugs is more likely to cause a relapse. You may undergo heavy menstrual bleeding again if the lifestyle measures are not altered from the previous ones.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

There are a number of home remedies and natural treatments available for menorrhagia. These include cinnamon (preparation of tea by steeping a cinnamon stick in boiling water and having it each morning), mustard seeds (the intake of mustard powder with milk each morning before or during the menstrual cycle), consumption of food items induced with omega-3 (flaxseed oil and fish), and licorice (consumption of licorice powder with water daily for 4-5 days).

Uterine Fibroids - How They Affect Your Fertility?

Uterine Fibroids - How They Affect Your Fertility?

Uterine fibroids are benign, muscular growths in the uterine wall which may grow within the wall of the uterus or may get attached to the wall. Uterine fibroids can be of many types depending on their location in the uterus – Subserosal fibroids are found on the outer surface of the uterus, just beneath the serosa which is the outer membrane lining the uterus; submuscosal fibroids are located inside the uterine cavity, beneath the endometrium; intramural fibroids are located inside the muscular wall of the uterus; and pedunculated fibroids grow on small stalks either inside the uterine cavity or on its outer surface.

Many women who have uterine fibroids do not show any symptoms and are often unaware of their existence till they have an ultrasound or medical check-up. But depending on the location and size of the fibroids, they can cause certain symptoms such as:

  1. Heavy bleeding during periods and pain
  2. Bleeding in between periods
  3. Frequent urination due to increased pressure on the bladder
  4. Constipation caused by pressure on the rectum
  5. Infertility or pregnancy complications
  6. Uterine fibroids and infertility

Depending on the location of the fibroid in the uterus and its size, uterine fibroids can negatively affect a woman’s fertility or lead to problems during pregnancy. More often, submucosal uterine fibroids, those that grow inside the uterine cavity and fibroids which are quite large in size (more than 5cm in diameter) cause infertility in women. This is because:

  1. Fibroids which are close to the cervix can block the entrance of or reduce the number of sperm that are able to enter the uterus
  2. Large fibroids which form near the opening of the fallopian tube in the uterus can block the fertilised egg from entering the uterus thus preventing implantation
  3. Submucosal fibroids which grow on the endometrium can reduce the total area available for the zygote to implant or reduce the space inside the uterine cavity thus interfering with normal development of the embryo.
  4. Multiple fibroid growths can deprive the endometrium of regular blood flow thus reducing the amount of estrogen received; this can lead to miscarriages in pregnancy as it compromises the structural integrity of the endometrium and as a result it cannot maintain its thickened state required for sustaining a pregnancy.

Most women with uterine fibroids do not experience problems with conceiving, however if you are experiencing fertility issues it is best to consult a doctor to determine if fibroids are causing the problem and pursuing their suggested course of action. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Why Heavy Period During Early Pregnancy Scary?

Why Heavy Period During Early Pregnancy Scary?

If you are pregnant with your first child and you are aware that you don't get your periods during this phase, naturally you may be scared if you suddenly start getting your periods. Your natural instinct says that you are experiencing a miscarriage. Although it is worrisome, if you bleed during your pregnancy, it is however, a very common phenomenon during the first trimester. However, if it continues to happen, you need to consult your gynaecologist as soon as possible.

Let us see the reasons for which you may encounter heavy bleeding during early pregnancy

  • You can experience bleeding if you have sex during the early phases of your pregnancy. This is because the cervix becomes softer due to pregnancy and gets increased blood flow during the thrust. This bleeding doesn't harm the baby, so there is nothing to be scared of.
  • When you are pregnant, the primary fertilization of eggs happens in the fallopian tube. After that, the eggs are then implanted in the uterine wall. During this phase, you can encounter bleeding. You may find it similar to the menstrual bleeding with a slight change in the colour, but there is not much to worry.
  • You may experience sudden bleeding if the fertilized eggs are embedded in the wall of the fallopian tube instead of the uterus. This condition is called Ectopic Pregnancy and can lead to the rupture of the fallopian tubes once the embryo grows bigger in size. This is a serious situation and you need to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

However, you cannot rule out the chances of miscarriage. So, if you are really scared of intermittent bleeding when you are expecting, it's best to go for medical care as soon as possible.

Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding - How To Deal With It?

As a woman goes through life, her hormonal levels change quite dramatically and this can be quite impactful. However, sometimes the impact is not a good one! This can be said to be the cause when it comes to dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This sort of bleeding occurs when the levels the hormones are at cause the menstrual cycle of the woman to become erratic.

Understanding the Diagnosis
When it comes to the diagnosis of an issue such as this, the process must include the ruling out of other more serious problems such as fibroids, a miscarriage, or even cancer which has affected the cervix or the uterus of the woman.

Treatment options
A doctor, post-ruling out these situations, will inform the patient, if dysfunctional uterine bleeding is what is being experienced. When it comes to the matter of how dysfunctional uterine bleeding is to be dealt with, it can be said that the best thing which is to be done is to sit down with the doctor and have a comprehensive chat with respect to what the solutions which are available at hand are.

  1. One of these solutions happens to be hormone treatment. However, it is to be kept in mind that this is usually only made use of in order to stop dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is very severe.
  2. If the woman is not experiencing bleeding which is this bad, a good solution could be non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are also known by their abbreviation, which is NSAIDs. Drugs such as ibuprofen are used quite widely when it comes to treating the issue of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. That being said, the matter of the best solution is something which is very subjective and the best judge of the same is only the doctor who has been apprised of all the facts which pertain to the case at hand.
  3. It is only in extreme cases that the uterus as a whole is removed, a process which goes by the name of hysterectomy. This sort of solution is only recommended when a woman does not wish to have any more children.
  4. If a woman who has been experiencing the problem of dysfunctional uterine bleeding is aged between the years of 19 and 39, a good and apt solution would be a combination of low dose hormonal contraceptive treatment along with progestin therapy.

A dysfunctional uterine bleeding is something which can mar a woman’s daily life, but it really needs not be the case!

Menstrual Problems - Things That Can Lead To It!

Menstrual Problems - Things That Can Lead To It!

By the time a woman is 20 years of age, monthly periods become a part of her routine normal life. Most women are well-equipped to handle it without their normal life (personal or professional) getting affected. They know it is “that time of the month” and are prepared mentally and physically. However, some women find it difficult to do it, as they could be suffering from menstrual problems including irregular periods and uterine bleeding. Most often, the bleeding is abnormal and dysfunctional, when most women are not able to identify a set pattern to it.

The list below identifies the most common forms of abnormal or dysfunctional uterine bleeding:

  1. A normal menstrual cycle occurs with a gap of anywhere from 21 to 35 days. Anything shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days is defined as irregular period
  2. Complete lack of period for up to 3 to 5 months is termed as amenorrhea
  3. Bleeding that is heavier or lasts longer than usual, and occurs before the due date for that month’s period
  4. Scanty bleeding between periods
  5. Spotting or bleeding after sexual intercourse
  6. Spotting or bleeding even after menopause

Causes: The most common causes of abnormal uterine bleeding are as follows:

  1. Hormonal imbalances can cause absence of period, increased frequency and amount of bleeding
  2. Miscarriage, bleeding is often the first sign of miscarriage
  3. Ectopic pregnancy
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Cervical or uterine infections
  6. Polyps
  7. Uterine fibroids
  8. Cancers of the reproductive tract
  9. Polycystic ovaries
  10. Endometrial hyperplasia
  11. Problems with blood clotting

Diagnosis: Menstrual problems are very common; however, most women tend to shy away from talking about it and do not come out in the open. When talking to a doctor, a detailed family history, menstrual history, and physical examination are done to come to a diagnosis. Additional diagnosis can also be done by ultrasound, hysteroscopy, endometrial biopsy.

Treatment: Identifying the problem helps in initiating the right treatment. A combination of the below is usually used in most women.

  1. Hormonal therapy is based on the underlying condition, and the type and dosage is determined based on it. It could be in the form of tablets, injections, vaginal applications, or released through an intrauterine device.
  2. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen are useful in reducing bleeding and controlling cramps during excessive menstrual bleeding.
  3. Antibiotics may be useful if there is infection of the pelvic organs
  4. Polyps, cysts, and cancers can be removed surgically and cancer should be ruled out
  5. Endometrial ablation where the endometrial tissue is treated with heat can be used to control bleeding permanently.
  6. Hysterectomy is the last resort where other forms of treatment fail.

Irregular Periods - When To See A Gynaecologist?

Irregular Periods - When To See A Gynaecologist?

Missing out on your periods or irregular periods once in a while is common. However, the problem arises when irregular periods become every month’s story. The irregularity can be an amalgamation of a host of factors. Ignoring the same for long will only complicate things further. For women of reproductive age, the problem can give rise to deleterious consequences, including difficulties in conceiving. In this article, we will discuss some of the common triggers that result in irregular periods and when to seek medical help.

What causes Irregular Periods?
The hormonal balance plays a significant role in the proper functioning of the vital organs of the body. More than often, irregular periods are found to be a manifestation of hormonal imbalance. Some of the conditions that trigger the hormonal imbalance include

  • PCO is a common medical condition that affects women of reproductive age. PCOS is characterized by the formation of cysts in the ovary (one or both) that affects the ovulation process. In PCOS, there is an increased production of Androgen, especially Testosterone that can cause irregular periods, hair fall, facial hair, weight gain etc.

  • Time and again doctors and health professionals emphasize the importance of leading a stress-free life. Research suggests stress and anxiety often interfere with the functioning of the Hypothalamus. As a result, the pituitary glands that control and regulate the activities of the ovaries, adrenal glands, and thyroid glands may be affected. These can also trigger a hormonal imbalance giving rise to menstrual problems such as Irregular periods. In case of extreme stress, there may be a short-term cessation of periods (Secondary Amenorrhea).

  • The hormonal imbalance and irregular periods can also be an outcome of other medical conditions such as endometriosis, a cancer affecting the reproductive organs, fibroids, obesity, diabetes, hyperprolactinemia (characterized by elevated level of prolactin) or even thyroid disorders.

  • Women who indulge in strict dieting can also suffer from irregular periods. Strict dieting (especially the ones that are without a proper nutritional guidance) can rob the body of the essential nutrients disrupting the hormonal balance.

  • Irregular periods are normal in women who are nearing their menopause.

When to seek medical assistance?
Irregular periods can be indicative of a severe health problem. Consult a gynecologist

  • If your regular cycles get delayed by more than 7 days.

  • There is spotting or bleeding in between the periods.

  • Your periods last for more than ten days or less than two days.

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

  • There is excruciating pain during periods.

  • The gap between two successive menstrual cycles is more than 35 days or less than 21 days.

  • Your periods are heavy and unmanageable, affecting your daily routine.

She should do her urine pregnancy test, if test is positive it means abortion is incomplete, and she should get an ultrasound done. Further treatment will depend on ultrasound report. If urine pregnancy test is negative then she will have to take Medicines to stop bleeding.

Hi Sir, I had more than 15 days bleed with light clots my family Dr. gave regestrone 5 mg tablets for 30 days twice a day I took for 3 days and stopped den bleed in color grey can I no problem in me.

MBBS, DGO, DNB
Gynaecologist, Noida
This is a hormonal pill ,so continue it as it has been advised by your doctor. If you leave in between then again you may have withdrawal bleeding.

I just got off my period 6 days ago and took the pill 3 days after my period due to unprotected sex. I have been bleeding since taking the pill. The bleeding appears to be more of a period rather than spotting due to the heaviness/how much blood is being excreted. Your thoughts? I am little concerned.

After taking high hormonal emergency pill one gets withdrawal bleeding 5 to 10 days later, and then new cycle starts. If bleeding is more or for more days then meet Gynecologist

I am a 19 year old female and I’m having trouble with my menstrual cycle! I’m on the implant so I’m aware this is probably a big part in this but I’ve had the implant in my arm for 11 months now and have always only had light spotting here and there! For the last 6 weeks I’ve been having my period extremely heavy for seven days on then seven days off I’m now currently on my 3rd heavy period and I’m worried about my health! Losing so much blood cannot be that healthy can it? Is this normal?

Heavy Bleeding At Menstruation
Hello!

I am Dr. Dimpy Irani. I am a gynecologist practicing in South Bombay. I am affiliated with all the major hospitals- Saifee Hospital, Breach Candy Hospital and Wockhardt Hospital. I have done my basic obstetrics and gynaecology course from KM h hospital after which I did my robotic registration from France and also did gynae aesthetic course through London, UK. I would like to talk about the recent advances in obstetrics and gynaecology. With the invention of drug delivery system, new endoscopic types of equipment, the introduction of robotics worldwide and many scientific innovations have changed obstetrics and gynae practice. Today we talk about major symptoms which Gynae patient comes about is Menorrhagia. Once upon a time it was all surgical intervention but now we have drug modulators for even fibroids. We have short surgical procedures like an introduction of IUD loops, TCRE which is like a day procedure and even if a patient requires surgical interventions we also have endoscopic surgeries. But now endoscopic surgery has moved on to robotics. Worldwide all major hospitals do robotic surgery.

I have been trained for the robotic surgery. We have a big robotic instrumentation at Saifee hospital where I do all my robotic surgeries. The big advantage of robotic surgery is- much decrease in the pain level of the patient, post-op the patient is totally pain-free ready to get discharged, very fewer complications, easy surgery, easy accessibility, 3D vision. So robotic surgery is here to stay. We also talk about current advancement which has come into gynaecology. We also have laparoscopic instruments. We have cancellations. We have new instruments like resection of the endometrium which was like not there before. Today we have the wide area of patients who come from adolescence to menopausal. All have their own problems. Adoloscents have their own issues cosmetic issues and polycystic ovaries and menopausal women, they are looking at their own benefits and avoiding any postmenopausal complication like osteoporosis and genitourinary problems.

We also have new machines for genitourinary complaints. So it is better to talk to your doctor rather than suffer with pain of menopausal and genitourinary complaints like urge incontinence when you are cannot control your urine. Let's move on to the Obstetric practice. Once upon a time when the patient was pregnant she was all into pregnancy, she would eat, she would forget about the cosmetic part and post-delivery she would realise that her body has taken a big toll. Right now No! Right now woman wants everything. Anti natally she wants to exercise, she wants to keep her cosmetics, skin, hair, dental everything in control. So we do have a full package where will look into the patient cosmetic physical health and also after delivery we also have a mummy makeup program. Today the major chunk of our consultations comes from infertile patients. Because of the pollution, stress, complications to late marriages, with women being educated and want to pursue their own career.

We have many options where we need to talk to your doctor- we have ovarian preservation, egg preservation, IVF where we look into older women we tell them not to waste time and go into an earlier treatment for infertility. So it is for patients to come to the doctor and talk with them and take early intervention and early treatment whether it is gynaecology, obstetrics or infertility treatment. And today we don't even treat patient by looking at the medical problems but we also take in total- what cosmetics they want? what are the issues they have? So it's a complete holistic approach which we today believe in obstetrics and gynaecology which would help wide area of patients from adolescents to young adolescents to women to menopausal women. All my wide area of patients from adolescence to menopause to young women, if you would like to consult me for all these problems, I am available at my private clinic and also available at Saifee Hospital and Wockhardt hospital and I am an honorary consultant in Breach Candy Hospital. All these appointments you can take through lybrate.com . I hope I can solve all your problems and look forward to a healthy life.

Menstrual Irregularities
Hi! Mai Dr. Charu Agarwal, ek Ayurvedacharya hun. Aaj mai aapse baat krna chahti hun menstrual irregularities ke bare mei. Menses ek detoxification process hai, jis se uterine cavity clean hoti hai. Masik dharam ki aniyamtta, iske piche bhut sare kaaran ho sakte hain. Kuch logon ko periods bahut jldi jldi ate hai aur kisi ko bhut late ate hai. Kisiko kam or kisiko jyada bleeding ho skti hai. Iske piche bhut se kaaran hote hain, jaise aap jante hain isme hormonal imbalance rehta hai. To hum ayurveda me iske piche jo karan mante hain, ya iski jo chikitsa krte hain, uske bare mei hum aaj baat krenge. Jaise ki kisi kisi ko periods bhut jldi ate hain ya bhut jyada din tak bleeding hoti hai ya heavy flow hota hai. To usme kahin na kahin hum kaaran mante hain pitt ko, heat ko. Kuch log hote hain jo bahut jyada garam chizen ya khatti chizen ya namkeen chizen, is tarha ki chizen bahut jyada khate hain. Fast food, bahar ka golgappe, tikki to is se, specially during menses, periods ke time pe ye sab chizen jyada khane se, aapki body me heat badh skti hai, garmi badh skti hai. Heat badhne ke or bhi kaaran ho skte hain jaise ki aapka gussa andar hi dabba lena, ya fir stressful life. To in sab kaarano se aapko hormonal imbalance ho sakta hai. Periods ka jldi jldi aana ya heavy bleeding ho sakti hai. Uski vajha se aapko khoon ki kami bhi ho sakti hai. Iske liye sabse pehle aapko koi bhi garam chiz ya khatti chizen, namkeen chizen, inka sewan rokna chahiye. Iske alawa dusri taraf hum dekhen to stress se hi kuch logon ko periods ka flow proper nhi hota. Jaise kuch log kehte hain ki unko ek hi din sirf bleeding aati hai. Kisi kisi ko periods bhut prolonged ho jati hai. Jaise kisi kisi ko bhut lambe duration ke baad aate hain. Ya fir periods kisi ko aate hi nhi hai. Iske piche kayi bar kaaran khoon ki kami bhi ho skta hai. Ya dusra kaaran agar hum dekhe to kuch log bhut thandi chizon ka ya bhari bhojan ka bhut jyada sewan krte hain, uss se cough ka body me prakope ho skta hai or body ke channels block ho skte hain. Jaise apne dekha hoga PCOD ke case me ya hypothyrodism mei, inn chizon mei generally blockage rehta hai or aap weight gain karte chale jate hain. Vajan badhta hai or periods proper time pe nhi aate. Hum aapko ayurvedic medicines dete hain jis se aapka cleaning ho. Ye dono chizen hormonal imbalance se related hain. Lekin in dono ke kaaran alag alag hain. To hume pehle kaaran ka nivaran karna hoga. Aur sabse jyada important hai aapka khan peen acha hona chahiye. Healthy lifestyle hona chahiye. Aur most importantly stress free life ke liye aapko apni mansik shanti banaye rakhni chahiye. Iss tarike nivaran ke liye aap ayurvedic upchar le skte hain. Thank you!

Menstrual Irregularities
Hello!

I am Dr Nikhil D Datar I am a senior gynaecologist practicing in the area of Mumbai. I am attached to Cloudnine hospital, lifewave hospital and Yashoda hospital which is situated in Malad and Goregaon area in Mumbai.

Today I am going to give you some kind of information about a very common problem that women face and that problem is excessive heavy and sometimes irregular bleeding during or in between your periods. Well this is a very common problem that is found and many a times women tend to neglect this problem. Now first of all it is very important to understand that excessive menstrual fluid or blood loss is not good for the health and that's why it is very important that you visit the doctor and get yourself treated. The commonest cause of anaemia that means less of haemoglobin in the body is because of this problem. So that's why it is very important to find the causes of the problem and also treat the problem. Very commonly we find problems of fibroids, problem of adenomyosis, problems of endometrial hyperplasia which is thickening of the lining of the uterus and hormonal imbalances being the causes of such a kind of situation. But women unnecessarily get worried they think that something is going to wrong with them and that's why they don't come to the doctor, so they should go to the doctor because treatment for these type of problems are relatively very-very easy, extremely safe and even if occasionally, the small surgery is required you will recover and go back to your house just in a span of 3 days. There are so many good medications that are available today that simple medical treatment or taking tablets can also help you significantly. So my request to all of you is do not shy away from going to gynaecologist, do or through check up find out the cost and very easily get yourself treated. It is very important that you live a very healthy and a very fruitful life at all points of time. On Lybrate platform you can book a consultation appointment or even do an online chatting with me.

Thank you.
