Menstrual Disorders

Menstrual disorders can turn your monthly period from a minor inconvenience into a major, debilitating condition. These disorders can cause physical and emotional symptoms and can severely disrupt your daily life for days or weeks at a time.

Menstrual cycle disorders can cause symptoms such as:

  • Heaving bleeding
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Missed periods
  • Mood swings

These symptoms are characteristic of several different menstrual disorders including:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Amenorrhea
  • Fibroids
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • PMS
  • PMDD

While these disorders are not usually serious, they are often painful. Fortunately, treatment methods are usually successful in relieving these symptoms to make that time of the month less significant.
