Priority 4 from the Bleeding Disorders PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: How should heavy periods be managed in women with bleeding disorders? (JLA PSP Priority 4)|
|JLA question ID||0078/4|
|Explanatory note||As well as causing significant blood loss, sufficient to cause anaemia, heavy menstrual bleeding can be a significant barrier to normal activity and have a negative impact of quality of life for women. The problem is not always explained entirely by the bleeding disorder and therefore requires close collaboration with a gynaecologist to find the most effective and satisfactory approach for individual women. This may well be a combination of haemostatic and hormonal or even surgical methods.|
