Dr Tsaltas Explains Heavy Periods

Heavy periods are one of the most common conditions that are referred to gynaecologists. They may exist due to many different causes such as:

• Fibroids
• Polyps
• Adenomyosis

Sometimes, however, there may be no cause found. This is known as ‘dysfunctional bleeding’.

If you suffer from heavy periods, I can investigate, make a diagnosis and then recommend the least invasive way to deal with the problem.

Many treatment options are available and all should be explored. These include:
• Oral contraceptive pill
• The Mirena IUD
• Oral progestogens
• Hysterosocpic surgery
• Hysterectomy
