Heavy Periods Have Other Remedies, Not Necessarily Hysterectomy

Almost one in four women, experience heavy periods at some stage in life, but only half of them really see a medical specialist. This is because of overriding fear that it// would lead to a hysterectomy.

Excessive menstrual bleeding may arise due to several conditions like Endometriosis, fibroids and hormonal imbalance. Many a time, there are no identifiable causes. Yet, heavy periods happen to be one of the important reasons for anemia in the developed nations. Such problems do have simple solutions - drugs and minor surgery. So, women should come forward and seek help rather than put up with the misery, fearing hysterectomy.

Today, there are a host of treatments to the aid of such women. A small medicinally treated plastic instrument is implanted in the womb, equipped to convey progestogen, which slows the growth of the lining in the womb. Apart from this, many oral remedies are also available. Endometrial ablation, a surgical option, employs heat or microwave to wipe the lining of the womb, clean. These varied options have relegated hysterectomy to be the last and final resort, when all other treatment measures have failed to produce results.

Professor Mary Ann Lumsden, chair of the NICE guideline group and consultant in gynecology in Glasgow said, ‘It affects well over a million women each year and means that some women can't get out of the house one or two days a month. It does cause a lot of misery. Women need to know what is on offer so they can make an informed choice that is for them.’

Andrea Sutcliffe, deputy chief executive at NICE said: ‘Many women suffer in silence with this condition believing wrongly that they should put up with it or that the only treatment is a hysterectomy. I hope these guidelines will encourage people to come forward to seek help with the assurance that they will benefit from high-quality services.’
