Menstrual Disorders

We’re here to guide you through it

Menstrual disorders can be disruptive to the lives of young and middle aged women, particularly when the symptoms include excessive cramping or heavy bleeding. By visiting their OB/GYN promptly, women can report these symptoms to their physician and learn that treatment for menstrual disorders is available. These are some of the most common treatment options:

  • Oral Contraceptives
  • Intrauterine Device
  • Endometrial Ablation
  • Lifestyle Changes

If you have noticed that your periods are occurring too frequently, infrequently or are resulting in heavy bleeding, it is a good time to schedule a consultation appointment with us. We recognize that menstrual disorders treatment is necessary in order to restore the quality of life for women. We believe in personalized care and treatment for all of our patients.

Menstrual disorders encompass a range of conditions that affect the normal menstrual cycle in women. Irregularities in the menstrual cycle can manifest in various ways, including abnormal bleeding patterns, pain, and changes in the duration or frequency of menstruation. One common menstrual disorder is menorrhagia, characterized by heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding. This condition can lead to anemia and significantly impact a woman’s quality of life. On the other hand, oligomenorrhea refers to infrequent or irregular menstrual cycles, often associated with hormonal imbalances or other underlying health issues. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can contribute to oligomenorrhea, affecting reproductive health and fertility.

Another significant menstrual disorder is dysmenorrhea, which involves severe menstrual cramps and pelvic pain. Primary dysmenorrhea is the more common form and is typically not associated with any underlying medical condition, whereas secondary dysmenorrhea is linked to reproductive health issues like endometriosis or uterine fibroids. Both types of dysmenorrhea can significantly impact a woman’s daily activities and well-being. Effective management strategies for menstrual disorders often involve a combination of medical treatments, lifestyle modifications, and, in some cases, surgical interventions, depending on the underlying cause. It is essential for individuals experiencing menstrual irregularities to seek medical advice to determine the cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan tailored to their specific needs.
