Herbal Remedies For Menorrhagia (Heavy Menstrual Bleeding)

About Menorrhagia

Menorrhagia is related to menstrual period in which women experience heavy menstrual bleeding and is called as abnormal uterine bleeding. This is different from normal periods as in this a person cannot continue daily activities due to severe blood loss and cramps.

In the process of menstrual cycle, there is a loss of blood every 28-35 days from the uterus due to expulsion of the inner lining of the uterus known as endometrium. This process sets off at puberty in females and continues till menopause in the mid-40s to 50s.

The things that effect our menstrual cycle are diet, Hormonal changes, lifestyle, sleep pattern and health issues. These factors also effect the body.

The normal blood flow during menstrual cycle is 30-40 ml per cycle and if this increases, it reaches to 60-80 ml per cycle. This results in heavy bleeding which give rise to the condition known as Menorrhagia.

Causes Of Menorrhagia

  •   Hormonal imbalance: There are two main hormones that regulates the functioning of the vagina namely Estrogen and Progesterone. These two hormones build up the lining of uterus and that lining is shed during the menstruation cycle. The imbalance in the hormones may lead to excessive development of endometrium.

  •   Uterine fibroids: During the child bearing year, uterine fibroids may occur causing heavy and prolonged bleeding during menstruation cycle.
  •   Polyps: These are the small growths on the lining of uterus that may cause heavy bleeding.

Migraine headache causes a throbbing and pulsing sensation in one area of the head along with nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. During migraine attack, one finds a quiet and dark place to lie down. In severe cases, it is accompanied by sensory warning symptoms such as flashes of light, blind spots or tingling in the arms or legs.


In this there is a changes in the brainstem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve, it is a major pain pathway. There is also an imbalance in the brain chemicals like serotonin, which causes the pain in the nervous system. Normally, in the migraine the serotonin level decreases and this may leads to trigeminal system to release substance like neuropeptides. This results to severe throbbing or pulsating pain.


Sometimes, we have seen when a person is having pain at the one area of the head, it starts aggravating due to the some factors, that factors are known as trigger factors:

  • Hormonal changes in the woman:some women's have migraine attack before and after the periods, due to the decrease in level of the estrogen. Oral contraceptives and hormonal replacement therapy, may also triggers the migraine attacks.
  • Foods:Salty, cheesy or processed food can trigger the migraine. Skipping the meal or fast may also trigger migraine.
  • Stress:Stress may also one of the trigger factor.   
  • Drinks:Alcohol and caffeinated beverages are another trigger factor.
  • Change in the environment: A change in the weather may also trigger the migraine.


  • Family history:If parents have migraine, then there is a more chances of the migraine.
  • Sex:before puberty, boys are prone to migraine then girls. But after puberty, girls are more sufferer than boys. Normally, females are three times more sufferer than males.
  • Age: Migraine, can be at any age but mostly people get risk at 40 age.


  • Abdominal Pain: Taking painkillers for long time cause abdominal pain, bleeding, ulcers and may cause other abdominal complications also.
  • Medication overuse headaches:Taking the headache medicine for long term will cause the severe complication.
  • Serotonin syndrome:Taking anti migraine medicine may increase the level of the serotonin in the nervous system which leads to life threatening syndrome known as a Serotonin syndrome.


It's better to consult the doctor rather than taking the medicines over the counter. Some people are scare to consult the doctor. Let's see how the doctor diagnose the disease:

  • Blood test:Blood test is done to find the Infections in the spinal cord or brain and toxins in the system.
