Heavy menstrual bleeding
Menorrhagia is the medical term for menstrual periods with abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding. As with all medical conditions, you should be examined by your doctor to make sure there is nothing serious causing your heavy menstrual bleeding. Once more serious causes are ruled out, this is typically a fairly simple matter to correct. With menorrhagia, every period you have causes enough blood loss and cramping that you can't maintain your usual activities.
In most cases, the heavy menstrual bleeding is explained by simple physiology of the menstrual cycle: Every month after your period, estrogen levels surge in the first half of your cycle, then when you ovulate you produce a surge of progesterone. When the progesterone surges, the estrogen levels drop for the remainder of that cycle. However, if you don’t produce enough progesterone, the estrogen just keeps building more lining in the uterus, so when it is time for the next period, the excessive lining causes heavier bleeding.
The most physiologically natural way to correct heavy bleeding is to supplement the progesterone that your body is not making.
