What are the symptoms of menstrual disorders?
Treatment for menstrual disorders will depend on the cause. Menstrual cycles often bring about a variety of uncomfortable symptoms leading up to your period. Not only can your period be lighter or heavier than normal, but it can also be painful. In some cases, women may not get their period. This is called amenorrhea. Another common menstrual problem is a heavy period. Also called menorrhagia, heavy periods cause you to bleed more than normal. You may also have your period for longer than the average of five to seven days. Some women experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms. Discussing your menstrual disorder symptoms with your doctor can help determine what type of treatments can best reduce or relieve your symptoms.
