Case Discussion on Diagnosis and Management of Menorrhagia
Menorrhagia refers to abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, often causing disruption to a woman's daily life. Diagnosis involves a thorough medical history, including menstrual patterns and related symptoms, followed by a physical examination. Blood tests, such as complete blood count (CBC), might be performed to check for anemia due to excessive bleeding. Imaging techniques like ultrasound may help identify structural abnormalities in the uterus or pelvis that could contribute to menorrhagia. Endometrial biopsy might be recommended to rule out conditions like endometrial hyperplasia or cancer. Keeping a menstrual diary can assist in tracking bleeding patterns, aiding the diagnosis process. Management options depend on the underlying cause, severity of symptoms, and patient preferences. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help alleviate pain and reduce menstrual flow by inhibiting prostaglandin production.
