Menstrual dysfunction encompasses physical or emotional problems that interfere with the normal menstrual cycle, causing pain, unusually heavy or light bleeding, delayed menarche, or missed periods. Typically, a woman of childbearing age should menstruate every 28 days or so unless she is pregnant or moving into menopause. But numerous things can go wrong with the normal menstrual cycle, some including amenorrhea, menorrhagia, and dysmenorrhea.
Treatment recommendations depend on the diagnosis, specifically the underlying cause. Typically, less invasive therapies should be considered first. Treatment choices depend on your age, your desire to preserve fertility and the cause of the bleeding (dysfunctional or structural). Other treatments may reduce your menstrual bleeding to a light to normal flow. Medication for bleeding caused by hormonal imbalances includes low-dose birth control pills, progestins and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
