The cause of menorrhagia is diagnosed through blood tests and procedures such as sonography, hysteroscopy, biopsy and dilatation and curettage. Cancer of the uterus should be ruled out in older patients.
A patient of menorrhagia is treated with drugs such as Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) e.g. naproxen and diclofenac. Other drugs used are those that prevent breakdown of clots e.g. tranexamic acid and hormones. Patients not responding to drugs and those who have completed their family can opt for surgical treatment.
