menorrhagia

[‚men·ə′rā·jē·ə]
(medicine)
Excessive bleeding during menstruation. Also known as hypermenorrhea.

Menorrhagia

 

profuse and protracted menstruation in which the menstrual cycle is preserved but the amount of blood lost during each period is greater than normal.

Menorrhagia is caused by decreased contractility of the uterine musculature. It occurs with chronic diseases of the uterus (metritis), acute inflammation of the adnexa uteri, uterine fibromyoma, and other gynecopathies. It can also result from blood diseases that reduce coagulability. Menorrhagia is treated by eliminating its primary causes.
