Treatment Abormal Bleeding | Women GYN Services | Menorrhagia

If you are experiencing abnormal bleeding it is our recommendation that you call Dr Hinson and set up an appointment immediately.  Dr Hinson has been providing treatment to women suffering from abnormal bleeding for 25 years.  Her experience and knowledge is outstanding, as her patients often relate that she is an excellent listener, connects well with people, and a very supportive and competent doctor.

Menorrhagia is the medical term for menstrual periods in which bleeding is abnormally heavy or prolonged. Although heavy menstrual bleeding is a common concern among premenopausal women, most women don't experience blood loss severe enough to be defined as menorrhagia.

What is Menorrhagia?

With menorrhagia, every period you have causes enough blood loss and cramping that you can't maintain your usual activities. If you have menstrual bleeding so heavy that you dread your period, Call Dr Hinson and set up an appointment. There are many effective treatments for menorrhagia.

Excessive menstrual bleeding, clinically known as menorrhagia, is pronounced men-or-ah-zha. The following symptoms may be indicative of menorrhagia.

  • Period lasting longer than seven days
  • Soaking through one or more sanitary pads or tampons in an hour
  • Menstrual flow that includes large blood clots
  • Menstrual flow that is heavy enough to interfere with your daily activities
  • Fatigue or other anemia-like symptoms

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms consult with Dr Hinson about the possibility that you may have menorrhagia.
