Treatment of menorrhagia usually depends on its underlying cause. The aim of treatment would be to reduce the heavy bleeding and prevent iron-deficiency anaemia and also improve the woman’s quality of life.

Your gynaecologist may recommend medication such as Non steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), the combined contraceptive pill, which reduces bleeding by about a third and tranexamic acid, which can reduce the heaviness of bleeding by almost half (40-50%) in most cases.

Intrauterine system (IUS)

If you’re not trying to get pregnant, your gynaecologist may recommend you have an IUS (Mirena) fitted. It contains the hormone levonorgestrel, which is slowly released and stops the lining of your womb from growing. The IUS lasts up to five years and should help to improve your menorrhagia within the first three to six months.
