What is menorrhagia?

Menorrhagia means excessive menstrual bleeding. It is determined by a blood loss greater than 80 ml during a regular menstrual cycle, or bleeding longer than 1 full week or more frequently than every 3 weeks.

It is a common complaint. As woman assessment of blood loss can be subjective, the best way to determine whether or not you suffer from it (as you are obviously not going to use a measuring glass is to count the number of pads or tampons used. Each of them holds around 5-10ml. (Look at the box for a more precise indication as it can vary depending of the brand). Therefore, if you change tampon every hour for more than half a day, you are concerned by excessive menstrual bleeding too.

Supplements for menorrhagia

Vitamin C

In a study, supplementation with vitamin C was shown to reduce menorrhagia in more than 80% of women. The beneficial effect of vitamin C could be due to the fact that it increases absorption of iron. Iron level is usually low in women suffering from excessive menstrual bleeding, due to the fact that they loose blood and have to increase their iron intake.

Omega 3

Excessive menstrual bleeding has been found in studies to be linked with increased Omega 6 availability in the uterus. Therefore, it makes sense to take as supplement of Omega 3, in order to balance the levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in your body.
