Every woman's period is different, but some women have a more difficult time than others. Heavy periods are a problem for many women. Many New Jersey women are not aware that there are solutions for this troublesome problem. Abnormal, heavy periods and menstrual bleeding can be caused by many factors. Heavy periods might be due to hormonal problems, infections, problems with blood clotting, growths, certain types of cancer, chronic medical problems or even pregnancy.

At Women's Health Institute of Macon, we help women find solutions to the problem of heavy periods all the time. Solutions range from the prescription of hormones (like birth control pills or progesterone) to antibiotics for infections.
Some women with heavy periods might need surgery to remove growths like polyps or fibroids that cause heavy menstrual bleeding.
