What is menorrhagia?
Menorrhagia refers to excessive bleeding during menstruation and is experienced by many women at some point in their lives. Bleeding may be very heavy during a normal length period or in the form of prolonged bleeding every cycle. The average menstrual period lasts between four and five days and produces 60 to 250 ml of blood. What is “normal” varies quite widely between different women and one woman may be used to a regular 28 day cycle with a 3-day bleed while another may menstruate every 35 days for 7 days. Both may be considered normal.
Bleeding in excess of what is considered “normal”, acceptable to the individual or even healthy may be known as menorrhagia.
This condition can include:
Menstrual bleeding that lasts longer than seven days
Bleeding which soaks one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours
Needing to use “double” sanitary protection or change sanitary pads or tampons during the night
Menstrual flow that includes large blood clots
Heavy periods that interfere with your regular lifestyle
Tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath due to anemia
What causes heavy periods?
In a large proportion of women who experience excessive menstrual bleeding the cause is not known. There are certain conditions that may be to blame though. These may include hormonal imbalances, fibroids, uterine cysts and polyps, some forms of cancer and certain medications. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD’s) may also lead to excessive bleeding.
In order to exclude the above causes, it is important to consult your health care provider about any changes in your menstrual cycle such as increased length of menstruation and heavier flow. Any vaginal bleeding after menopause should also lead you to seek medical advice.
In young women who have begun menstruating in the last 18 months, menorrhagia is common due to irregular ovulation. Also, for women approaching the menopause, hormonal imbalance may contribute to heavier and irregular menstruation.
What complications can heavy periods cause?
Menstrual bleeding that is prolonged or excessive over several cycles may lead to health complications if not properly managed. Iron deficiency anemia is caused by the loss of red blood cells during heavy menstrual bleeding. Anemia typically causes weakness and fatigue though women with more severe cases may even find themselves short of breath, light-headed, experiencing restless leg syndrome or a rapid heart rate. Anemia can be easily remedied and reversed with iron supplements and proper treatment of menorrhagia.
Menorrhagia is also associated with severe cramps and “period pains” as well as decreased fertility.
What is the usual treatment for menorrhagia?
Conventional treatment of menorrhagia is based on treating any underlying cause or condition or, in the many women who have no known cause, symptomatic treatment may range from oral contraceptives and other hormonal medications to surgery.
The Natural Way
Hormonal balance during a woman’s life may be influenced by a variety of factors such as nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, emotions, age and ovulation. Natural remedies also have a long history of use in promoting female reproductive health and hormonal balance – assisting women throughout the ages to stay healthy before and during the menstrual cycle as well as during the perimenopause and menopause – without unwanted side effects!

How has Mens-Reduce helped other women?
'Over the last year or so my cycle has gradually changed and my periods have become heavier and last up to two weeks at a time! Apart from the pure inconvenience, I ended up spending a fortune in sanitary products and painkillers. After a number of tests which showed nothing, my doctor recommended I start using the Pill. After the mood swings, tender breasts and weight gain I experienced with the Pill when I was younger I was less than keen on this option. I began to research natural alternatives and ordered your Mens-Reduce from the Native Remedies site. My first period after starting this remedy was lighter and lasted 7 days. After 4 months of using this remedy my periods are back to normal (bleed about 5 days and not so heavy) and I also experience much milder cramps which is a huge relief! Thank you for this wonderful product- I am really grateful to have found a natural remedy that works so well!'
'Your remedy for heavy periods has been tremendous for my teenage daughter - her periods were irregular, heavy and completely debilitating for her. I was horrified at the idea that she may have to use the Pill, which was suggested to us by our doctor. She has used your remedy regularly for 3 months and her cycle no longer rules her life. She can now socialize, play sport and relax every day of the month. Also let me tell you that she doesnt have such mood swings since taking this remedy which is such a big relief for all of us! Thank you, from a grateful mother!'
