Period Problems

Regular, or Not-So-Regular, Menstruation

Women don’t all experience menstruation the same way. What’s a regular monthly occurrence for some might be totally alarming for others.

Menstruation occurs after ovulation when your uterine lining grows to receive a fertilized egg. If the egg isn’t fertilized, your hormones decrease and the lining of your uterus sheds over a period of days. The amount of blood lost during your period varies from month to month.

Menorrhagia, a condition involving heavy bleeding that lasts for weeks, can be debilitating. Dysmenorrhea, or periods accompanied by unbearable pain, can interfere with your life.

Although these conditions may be normal for you, you don’t have to suffer through them. We can help.
