What are some causes of rectal bleeding

Combat the causes of heavy menstrual bleeding gently

For treatment, it is important to have the gynecologist clarify possible causes.

Disproportionately long and heavy menstrual periods can have a variety of causes. Some women suffer from it at a young age, with others it only begins after their 35th birthday - for example after they have stopped taking the pill. Infections, blood clotting disorders and benign diseases of the uterus such as myomas and polyps are also possible triggers. In rare cases, malignant diseases such as cancer of the uterine lining can also be the reason for heavy menstrual bleeding. This is not the only reason why it is so important to speak to the gynecologist and clarify the causes - a gynecological examination is also necessary in order to choose the right treatment method. For example, myomas, polyps or other benign tissue growths in the uterus can be removed by surgery. However, as a first step, many women try drugs that reduce the tendency to bleed or certain pain relievers that reduce bleeding at the same time. Another option is to use hormonal contraceptives such as birth control pills or an IUD. Both weaken menstrual bleeding by stunting the growth of the lining of the uterus.
