Some women get through their monthly periods easily with few or no concerns. Their periods come like clockwork, starting and stopping at nearly the same time every month, causing little more than a minor inconvenience.
However, other women experience a host of physical and/or emotional symptoms just before and during menstruation. From heavy bleeding and missed periods to unmanageable mood swings, these symptoms may disrupt a woman's life in major ways.
Most menstrual cycle problems have a clear explanation and a range of treatment options exist to relieve your symptoms. If your periods feel overwhelming, discuss your symptoms with our gynaecologist. Once your symptoms are accurately diagnosed, she can help you choose the best treatment to improve the condition.
Heavy Bleeding (Menorrhagia) - Heavy bleeding during menstruation or periods in females is usually related to a hormonal imbalance although fibroids, polyps, cysts, PID etc could also cause this. Thus, menorrhagia is actually a symptom of an underlying condition rather than a disease itself. It may also be related to the use of an IUD. Women with menorrhagia experience not only significant pain in abdomen or lower stomach, but may feel very tired due to the loss of blood.
Amenorrhea - You may also experience the opposite problem of heavy menstrual bleeding which is no menstrual bleeding at all. There are two types of Amenorrhea :
Primary Amenorrhea - Primary amenorrhea is diagnosed if you turn 16 and haven't menstruated. It's usually caused by some problem in your endocrine system, which regulates your hormones.
Secondary Amenorrhea - Secondary amenorrhea is diagnosed if you had regular periods, but they suddenly stop for three months or longer.
Dr Pushpa Sethi and Dr Parvinder Kaur form team of gynaecologists with more than 50 years of combined experience in handling the problem of menstrual disorders in women. The first thing to do is to understand your problems with patience. The doctor would then order some tests to diagnose the underlying cause for this condition. These tests may include an ultrasound scan of the abdomen and some blood tests. The ulrasound would give valuable information about the presence of ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids while the blood tests would provide the levels for various female hormones in your body.
The solutions are mostly in the form of medical management but for some cases there might be a surgical solution also. Menstrual disorder can be the symptom for some more serious disease and if diagnosed in time, the treatment is not only cheaper but also has a greater chance of success. The cost of consulting a gynaecologist is not more than Rs. 1000 while the cost for the various tests would be in the range of Rs. 2000 - 5000 for most of the patients.
