The term menorrhagia refers to unusually heavy or prolonged menstrual flow, passing large clots of blood, and bleeding lasting longer than 7 days. Possible reasons for menorrhagia are hormonal imbalance, fibroids, polyps, infection, blood disorder, and medications. Diagnosis can be made using laboratory tests, pelvic exam, cultures, ultrasound, and biopsy. Treatment depends on the age of the patient and whether or not she desires future pregnancy.
