Abnormal and Heavy Bleeding
Heavy bleeding (menorrhagia) is one of the most common gynaecological problems: it affects one out of every five women. Many women do not know that they can get help for menorrhagia, others do not ask for help because they are embarrassed, while others are treated symptomatically and do not realise that they can schedule an appointment with a gynaecologist to have a thorough check-up in order to get to the root of the problem and be fully cured.
Did you know…?
- Untreated heavy or prolonged bleeding can stop you from living your life to the fullest?
- Menorrhagia can also cause anaemia, a common blood problem that causes an iron deficiency and leaves you feeling tired, weak and even depressed. Anaemia can also make you more susceptible to infections.
