Reason Behind Heavy During Periods Could Help Develop New Treatment
Heavy menstrual bleeding is one of the most common reasons for visiting the gynecologist - about 20 to 30 percent of pre-menopausal women deal with heavy bleeding. Heavy menstrual bleeding is linked to a particular level of protein in the blood. Increasing the levels of the protein called HIF-1 could reduce the risk of heavy menstrual bleeding. Women with heavy periods had reduced levels of HIF-1 compared with women with normal blood loss. Lowered levels of oxygen - known as hypoxia - stimulates the production the protein HF-1, which drives repair of the womb lining.
