The review appears in the current issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates research in all aspects of health care. Systematic reviews draw evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering both the content and quality of existing trials on a topic.

The reviewers identified eight randomized controlled trials that compared either hysterectomy or conservative surgery with medical therapy using either oral drugs or the hormone-releasing IUD. The studies enrolled a total of 821 women.

Heavy menstrual bleeding affects about one in five women of reproductive age and is the most common cause of anemia in premenopausal women. Medical treatments include oral drugs and a hormone-releasing IUD to decrease blood loss. Surgical options range from conservative procedures that destroy the lining of the uterus to hysterectomy, which removes the uterus entirely.
