Menorrhagia Understanding

Menorrhagia: Overview

Menorrhagia is heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding that lasts for more than 7 days. It limits normal activities, affects quality of life, and causes anaemia in two-thirds of women with objective menorrhagia. It can be caused due to:

1. Problems related to uterine
  • Growths or tumors of the uterus that are not cancer; these can be called uterine fibroids or polyps.
  • Cancer of the uterus or cervix.
  • Certain types of birth control - for example, an intrauterine device (IUD).
  • Problems such as a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, can also cause abnormal bleeding.

2. Hormone-related problems
3. Other illnesses
  • Bleeding-related disorders, such as von Willebrand disease (VWD) or platelet function disorder.
  • Nonbleeding-related disorders such as liver, kidney, or thyroid disease; pelvic inflammatory disease; and cancer.


Signs and symptoms of menorrhagia may include:

  • Soaking through one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours
  • Needing to use double sanitary protection to control your menstrual flow
  • Needing to wake up to change sanitary protection during the night
  • Bleeding for longer than a week
  • Passing blood clots larger than a quarter
  • Restricting daily activities due to heavy menstrual flow
  • Symptoms of anemia, such as tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath


Usually, menstrual bleeding lasts about 4 to 5 days and the amount of blood lost is small (2 to 3 tablespoons). However, women who have menorrhagia usually bleed for more than 7 days and lose twice as much blood. The doctor will ask about the medical history and bleeding cycles. The diagnosis involves one or more tests or procedures such as: blood test, pap test, endometrial biopsy, and ultrasound. Based on the results of primary tests, further tests such as Sonohysterography and Hysteroscopy can be recommended.


The type of treatment is based on the cause of bleeding and its severity. Other factors such as age, medical history and overall health will also be considered. Treatment for hormone problems may include: Prostaglandin inhibitors are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs), including aspirin or ibuprofen. They help reduce cramping and the amount you bleed. Ablation, Hysterectomy Birth control pills helps to stop ovulation and result in lighter periods. Treatment for problems with the uterine lining (endometrium), hysterectomy, and iron supplements

Menorrhagia Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Menorrhagia report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Menorrhagia Emerging Drugs

Elagolix: Abbvie

Elagolix is an orally-administered, nonpeptide, small molecule gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist that inhibits endogenous GnRH signaling by binding competitively to GnRH receptors in the pituitary gland. Administration results in dose-dependent suppression of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), leading to decreased blood concentrations of the ovarian sex hormones estradiol and progesterone. It is registered for menorrhagia.
