What is life like for women who suffer from heavy periods and what causes some women so much more pain and bleeding than other women? If you are reading this you may already know about living with it, but there are so many questions that go unanswered. Quite frankly, some of the medical jargon is bit hard to understand at times and can fail to communicate how this truly affects a woman’s family, career, sex life and her ability to live life in general.
Periods are considered heavy if there is enough blood to soak a pad or tampon every hour for several consecutive hours. However, for some women, the pain associated with their period is the most debilitating symptom.
There are many causes of painful periods and heavy bleeding, so diagnosing a woman’s specific condition can be tough. One thing women affected by this should know however is that there are treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, to improve their quality of life.
If you or someone you know suffers from any of these symptoms, Dr. Nathan Ward of the Lakeview OB/GYN Clinic can help. You don’t have to live with it. Call for an appointment today (801) 299-2229.
