Heavy or Painful Periods
Heavy periods (menorrhagia) occur when a woman loses an excessive amount of blood during consecutive menstrual periods. According to New Beginnings OB-GYN, Dr. Rania Ibrahim, menorrhagia can occur either by itself or in conjunction with menstrual pain.
Heavy bleeding does not indicate the existence of anything seriously wrong, but it can cause disruption to a woman’s everyday life. Most women know how much bleeding is normal for them and are aware when that amount increases or decreases.
A good signal that your blood loss is excessive is if you:
- Find that you need to use an unusually high number of tampons or pads;
- Experience heavy bleeding that goes through to your clothes or bedding;
- Need to use tampons and pad together.
With painful menstrual periods a woman experiences cramps in her lower abdomen or back pain. Although some pain during your period is typical, excessive pain isn’t.
Sometimes, the menstrual pain makes it difficult to perform normal activities for a few days during the menstrual cycle. Menstrual pain is the major reason for absence from school and work among women in their teens and 20s.
