Average menstrual blood loss is between 30 and 40 mL per cycle.2 An early population-based study concluded that the upper limit of normal menstrual blood loss was between 60 and 80 mL, with the upper limit subsequently adopted as the classic definition of menorrhagia.3,4 A greater prevalence of impaired iron status was noted with a loss of more than 60 mL.
Although menorrhagia remains a leading reason for gynecologic office visits, only 10-20% of all menstruating women experience blood loss severe enough to be defined clinically as menorrhagia.The term 'incidence' of Menorrhagia refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Menorrhagia diagnosed each year.
Surgical Treatment like Dilation and Curettage (D&C). A procedure in which the top layer of the uterus lining is removed to reduce menstrual bleeding. This procedure might need to be repeated over time. Operative hysteroscopy. Two types of surgical procedures using different techniques in which all or part of the lining of the uterus is removed to control menstrual bleeding.
Major research on disease:
Outpatient transcervical microwave myolysis assisted by transabdominal ultrasonic guidance for menorrhagia caused by submucosal myomas.A surgical procedure, using a special tool to view the inside of the uterus, that can be used to help remove polyps and fibroids, correct abnormalities of the uterus, and remove the lining of the uterus to manage heavy menstrual flow. Endometrial ablation or resection.
