We understand how menstrual problems can really interfere with your quality of life. Menorrhagia, also known as heavy periods, is a common condition that nearly 50 per cent of women will experience. It is often due to fibroids, endometriosis, polyps, polycystic ovaries or changes prior to the menopause. At the Surrey Park Clinic we have years of experience in dealing with these conditions and treating them effectively to bring relief to our patients.
Normally a period occurs approximately every 28 days as part of the monthly menstrual cycle. Periods usually start from the age of 12 years and continue until the menopause at approximately 45-55 years. Menstrual problems include PMS, heavy periods and bleeding, irregular periods, and painful periods.
Heavy bleeding can occur with or without other symptoms, including period pain (dysmenorrhoea) and is a common problem but can lead to anaemia, and can also affect self confidence and overall quality of life. There maybe many causes including problems within the uterus, ovaries or hormone production.
