THAT HEAVY MENSTRUATION CAN KILL ANY WOMAN ‘’MENORRHAGIA’’

THAT HEAVY MENSTRUATION CAN KILL ANY WOMAN ‘’MENORRHAGIA’’



In 1994 there is a woman I knew , she is a mother of 2 children, she has being having the problem of heavy menstrual periods for years, like many other women in Nigeria.
This particular month, the menstrual period came and refuse to stop, she bled heavily for days and fainted [she almost died, many other women have died from excessive bleeding], her husband and neighbours had to quickly rush her to the nearest hospital, the doctor did all he could to stop the bleeding and revive the woman, all failed , the last resort was to remove the entire womb [hysterectomy] so as to save the woman’s life.
The entire womb was removed and the woman survived till this day, but she could no more have any other child.

In this article we are going to talk about menorrhagia, what causes it, the diagnosis/tests to check out for it, and treatments.

DEFINITION/COMPLICATIONS

Menorrhagia is an abnormal heavy and prolonged menstrual period at regular intervals.
Only females are affected by menorrhagia
At some time in your reproductive life, you have probably experienced heavy bleeding during your menstrual period [some times with blood clots]. If you are like some women, every period you have causes enough blood loss and cramping that you can not maintain your usual daily activities.
The medical term for periods like these---heavy excessive or prolonged is MENORRHAGIA.
Aside from the social distress of dealing with a prolonged and heavy period, overtime the blood loss may prove to be greater than the body iron reserves or the rate of blood replenishment, leading to ANEMIA.
Symptoms attributable to anemia may include shortness of breath, tiredness, weakness, tingling and numbness in fingers and toes, headaches, depression, becoming cold more easily and poor concentration.


CAUSES

There are several possible cause of menorrhagia , including the following
[1] Hormonal imbalance [particularly estrogen and progesterone], especially seen in adolescents [young girls] who are experiencing their menstrual period for the first time and in womaen approaching menopause.
[2] Pelvic inflammatory disease [PID]
[3] Uterine fibroids
[4] Abnormal pregnancy [like miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy]
[5] Infection, tumours, or polyps in te uterine cavity.
[6] Certain birth control devices [like intrauterine devices or IUCDs]
[7] Bleeding or platelet disorders
[8] High levels of prostaglandins [chemical substances wich help to control muscle contractions of the uterus]
[9] High levels of endothelins [chemical substances which help the blood vessels in the body dilate]
[10] Liver, kidney, thyroid disease or diabetic
[11] Polycystic ovarian syndrome
[12] Fat/obesity
[13] Cancer of the womb, ovaries or cervix
[14] Inherited bleeding disorder



SYMPTOMS

[1] Menstrual flow that soaks through one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours.
[2] The need to use double sanitary protection to control your menstrual flow
[3] The need to change sanitary protection during the night
[4] Menstrual flow that includes large blood clots
[5] Heavy menstrual flow that interferes with your regular life style
[6] Menstrual period, lasting longer than several days
[7] Tiredness, fatigue, or shortness of breath
[8] Severe pelvic pain with heavy menstrual blood flow


===> ==> CLICK THIS LINK TO GET FREE ACCESS TO DOWNLOAD THE SECRET FERTILITY SYSTEM



DIAGNOSIS/TESTS

[1] Blood tests
[a] PCV to rule out anaemia
Hormonal assay study
[c] Thyroid disorder
[d] Blood clotting abnormalities

[2] Pap Smear Tests
Collection of cells from your cervix for microscopic examination to detect infection, inflammation or changes that may be cancerous or may lead to cancer.

[3] Endometrial Biopsy

[4] Ultrasound Scan
This imaging method uses sound waves to produce images of your uterus, ovaries and pelvis , especially Transvaginal Scan

[5] Sonohysterography [SonoHSG]
This ultrasound scan is done after fluid is injected through a tube into the uterus by way of your vagina and cervix. This allows us to look for problems in the lining of your uterus.

[6] Hysteroscopy

[7] Dilation and Currettage.


TREATMENTS

Specific treatment for menorrhagia is based on a number of factors including

[1] Your overall health and medical history
[2] The cause and severity of the condition
[3] Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies
[4] The likelihood that your periods will become less heavy before long
[5] Your future childbearing plans
[6] Effects of the condition on your lifestyle
[7] Your opinion or personal preference.

Management of bleeding in pregnancy requires gynaecology referral and potential hospital admission especially if bleeding does not stop or is substantial and surgical intervention is required.
Blood transfusion maybe required for blood loss resulting in compromised hemodynamic stability
Treatment options include pharmaceutical or surgical and radiological options

Definition of Female Infertility

Definition of Female Infertility





Infertility in a couple that relates to factors associated with the woman rather than the man.


Description of Female Infertility

Many women trying to conceive for the first time panic if their periods continue for even three or four months. But the standard definition of infertility is unsuccessful conception after an entire year of unprotected intercourse. At that point, a couple should seek a comprehensive examination that includes menstrual and pregnancy history, semen analysis, ovulation tests, and sometimes a laparoscopy to detect endometriosis or pelvic adhesions. Such testing determines the causes of infertility in 70 to 85 percent of all couples.
Causes and Risk Factors of Female Infertility

===> ==> CLICK THIS LINK TO GET FREE ACCESS TO DOWNLOAD THE SECRET FERTILITY SYSTEM


Many factors may account for infertility: abnormalities of the uterus (such as fibroids); ovarian dysfunction; endometriosis; scar tissue from previous surgery; thyroid problems or other hormonal imbalances; sexually transmitted diseases or other infections in the man or woman; and a low sperm count.

Female reproductive problems account for 40 percent of all infertility cases; male reproductive problems account for another 40 percent; and 20 percent of the time physicians cannot determine precisely what is wrong.

Treatment of Female Infertility

The treatment of infertility has made enormous progress in the last decade as a result of advances in assisted reproductive technology, or ART. This technology combines the use of fertility drugs - hormonal therapy - with artificial insemination using any of a group of techniques: intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT), or oocyte (egg) donation.

Fertility Drugs: fertility drugs, forms of hormone therapy, are designed to trick the ovaries into producing eggs, sometimes many eggs in a single cycle, by stimulating the woman's hormones to do their assigned jobs more efficiently or by replacing them with "outside" hormones.

Clomiphene, marketed under the brand names of Clomid and Serophene and used for the treatment of infertility problems for more than twenty-five years, is an agent that increases the hormone production. Taken by tablet, clomiphene works by making the pituitary gland produce large quantities of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone).

The FSH in turn stimulates ovulation - in fact, sometimes accomplishing its purpose so well that it results in the release of two or more eggs, giving a woman on clomiphene a 10 percent chance of carrying twins.

Pergonal and Metrodin are powdered forms of FSH and are mixed with sterile water and taken by intramuscular injections.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI): In this procedure, a small amount of concentrated sperm, first "washed" to remove most of the seminal plasma that surrounds it, is placed in the uterus through a thin plastic catheter that is passed through the vagina and cervix. Usually painless, the IUI procedure takes only a few minutes to accomplish.
IUI is almost always used in combination with a fertility drug - clomiphene or Pergonal - to stimulate ovulation followed by an HCG injection to trigger the release of an egg. The timing of the IUI is determined with the help of vaginal ultrasound, previous cycle lengths, BBT temperature graphs, or urinary LH correlation kits.

In Vitro Fertilization: This is designed to make it easier for the sperm and the egg to meet successfully by taking essential reproductive events out of the body and performing them in vitro (in glass). Mature eggs are removed from the ovaries, fertilized with sperm in a laboratory dish, and then the resulting embryo is implanted into the uterus.


IVF, first used to treat women with absent or damaged fallopian tubes, is used today for any kind of infertility. Although here are many IVF programs is use throughout the U.S., each differing in minor ways, all use four basic steps: ovarian stimulation; egg retrieval; fertilization; and embryo transfer.

Ovarian Stimulation using either Pergonal or Metrodin or both: The development of the follicles is closely followed by observing their growth with transvaginal ultrasound and measuring their ability to produce estrogen. When the eggs are big enough, they are ready for egg retrieval.

Egg Retrieval: During IVF, the eggs are removed just before ovulation. A thin needle is passed through the back wall of the vagina up to the ovaries, all accomplished with the guidance of transvaginal ultrasound. As the doctor watches the procedure on the screen of the ultrasound machine, the needle punctures the follicle and, with gentle suction, carefully removes the egg along with the follicular fluid. The eggs are placed in a sterile container and are examined by a cell biologist or embryologist. If they are judged to be normal in shape and development, they are ready for fertilization.

Fertilization: Now the eggs and fresh "washed" sperm are mixed together for fertilization. When fertilization has indeed occurred and the eggs, now called embryos, are beginning to undergo cell division, they are graded and prepared for transfer to the uterus.

Embryo Transfer: One to three days after the eggs are retrieved, up to four healthy embryos are inserted into the uterus with a thin plastic tube that is passed through the cervix.

Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT) is a more sophisticated variation of the basic IVF procedure and usually produces a slightly higher pregnancy rate.
Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT) is the latest variation on the IVF-GIFT technique. The freshly fertilized eggs (zygotes) are placed into the fallopian tubes during a laparoscopy after they have reached the embryo stage.

How to increase your chances of conceiving and preventing miscarriages

How to increase your chances of conceiving and preventing miscarriages





Fertility



Over the past twenty years, fertility problems have increased dramatically. At least 25 percent of couples planning a baby will have trouble conceiving, and more and more couples are turning to fertility treatments to help them have a family.


===> ==> CLICK THIS LINK TO GET FREE ACCESS TO DOWNLOAD THE SECRET FERTILITY SYSTEM

What is the cause? From a medical point of view, infertility is believed to be caused by the following factors, and in these proportions.



Problem Percentage of cases:



Ovulatory failure (including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) 20

Tubal damage 15

Endometriosis 5

Male problems 26

Unexplained 30

If the mathematics don't add up, it's because many couples experience more than one problem when trying to conceive: for example, you may suffer from endometriosis, but your partner may also have a low sperm count.



Interestingly, the most common cause of infertility is 'unexplained', which means that following thorough investigations, doctors can find no specific or identifiable medical problem at the root. But this is where a natural approach can come into play. If a couple fails to become pregnant, there is obviously something causing the problem. It's no good labelling infertility 'unexplained'. The answer is to look deeper - at lifestyle factors, nutritional deficiencies and even emotional elements.



===> ==> CLICK THIS LINK TO GET FREE ACCESS TO DOWNLOAD THE SECRET FERTILITY SYSTEM


What are your choices?



The natural approach to fertility is and has been enormously successful, largely because fertility is multi-factorial, meaning that there are many, many elements that can be at the root of your fertility problems. A study conducted by the University of Surrey showed that couples with a previous history of infertility who made changes in their lifestyle, diet and took nutritional supplements had an 80 percent success rate Given that the success rate for assisted conception is around 20 percent, it's worth considering these options.



Natural treatment plans are, by their nature, extensive and really do need to be adjusted to suit your individual needs. I will, however, go through the most important points below. Remember that it takes at least three months for immature eggs (oocytes) to mature enough to be released during ovulation. It also takes at least three months for sperm cells to develop, ready to be ejaculated. This means that when you are trying to improve your fertility, you need to have a four-month period before conceiving. This is called 'pre-conception care' and it's as important to take as much care during this period as it is during a pregnancy itself.



If you are going for IVF treatment or another assisted conception procedure, you should follow the recommendations listed below in order to increase the chances that the procedure will work.



One test which is particularly useful for infertility is the Female Hormone Test (saliva).



Female Hormone Test (saliva)


===> ==> CLICK THIS LINK TO GET FREE ACCESS TO DOWNLOAD THE SECRET FERTILITY SYSTEM


A total of eleven saliva samples are collected at home at specific times across one cycle, and sent to the lab for analysis. This simple test will chart the level of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone across the month, to work out a pattern that may reveal:



early ovulation

anovulation (no ovulation)

problems with the phasing of the cycles, such as a short luteal phase (second half of the cycle)

problems with maintaining progesterone levels

This test can be done even if you have irregular cycles.



Diet



Both you and your partner should follow the dietary recommendations explained in the Nutrition Section (The Foundation of Health) Although it goes without saying that a healthy diet is crucial to a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby, many people are unaware of the fact that diet can help to correct hormone imbalances that may affect your ability to conceive. There are also certain foods and drinks that are known to lower fertility.





Alcohol



Alcohol will affect both you and your partner. In fact, drinking any alcohol at all can reduce your fertility by half - and the more you drink, the less likely you are to conceive. One study showed that women who drank less than 5 units of alcohol a week (equal to five glasses of wine) were twice as likely to get pregnant within six-months compared with those who drank more.



Research has also shown that drinking alcohol causes a decrease in sperm count, an increase in abnormal sperm and a lower proportion of motile sperm. Alcohol also inhibits the body's absorption of nutrients such as zinc, which is one of the most important minerals for male fertility.



As difficult as it may seem, you should eliminate alcohol from your diets for at least three months in order to give yourself the best possible chance of conceiving.





Caffeine



There is plenty of evidence to show that caffeine, particularly in the form of coffee, decreases fertility. Drinking as little as one cup of coffee a day can halve your chances of conceiving. On study showed that problems with sperm: sperm count, motility and abnormalities, increase with the number of cups of coffee consumed each day. Once again, it's important to eliminate all caffeine-containing food and drinks for at least three months before trying to conceive. That includes colas, chocolate, black teas and coffee, among other things.





Xenoestrogens



Xenoestrogens are essentially environmental oestrogens, coming from pesticides and the plastic industry. When you are trying to conceive, one of the most important things you need to do is to balance your hormones. It is extremely important to avoid anything that might cause an imbalance, and one of the main culprits is the xenoestrogens. One of the best ways to eliminate an excess intake of xenoestrogens is to buy organic produce for the pre-conceptual period.





Smoking



Smoking has definitely been linked with infertility in women. It can even bring on an early menopause, which is a particularly important consideration for older women who may be trying to beat the clock. Smoking can decrease sperm count in men, making the sperm more sluggish, and it can increase the number of abnormal sperm. With men, the effects on fertility are increased with the number of cigarettes.







Supplements



There is now a great deal of scientific knowledge about the use of nutritional supplements and their beneficial effects on both male and female fertility. As you will see, these supplements can be very effective in re-balancing your hormones, as well as improving you and your partner's overall health, which are so vital for successful conception.



Supplements are necessary because even the best diet in the world will not contain all the nutrients you need to give you the best chance of conceiving.





Folic Acid



It is now known that folic acid can prevent spina bifida in your baby, and it is essential that you get plenty both before and during pregnancy. And that's not all: folic acid is undoubtedly important, but it is just part of the very important B-complex family of vitamins that are necessary to produce the genetic materials DNA and RNA. Together with vitamin B12, folic acid works to ensure that your baby's genetic codes are intact. Remember: it's not enough to take folic acid alone when you are trying to become pregnant. All of the B vitamins are essential during the pre-conceptual period. Research has shown that giving B6 to women who have trouble conceiving increases fertility and vitamin B12 has been found to improve low sperm counts





Zinc



Zinc is the most widely studied nutrient in terms of fertility for both men and women. It is an essential component of genetic material and a zinc deficiency can cause chromosome changes in either you or our partner, leading to reduced fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage. Zinc is necessary for your body to 'attract and hold' (utilise efficiently) the reproductive hormones, oestrogen and progesterone.



And it's equally important for your partner: zinc is found in high concentrations in the sperm. Zinc is needed to make the outer layer and tail of the sperm and is, therefore, essential for the health of your partner's sperm and, subsequently, your baby. Interestingly, several studies have also shown that reducing zinc in a man's diet will also reduce his sperm count.





Selenium



Selenium is an antioxidant that helps to protect your body from highly reactive chemical fragments called free radicals. For this reason, selenium can prevent chromosome breakage, which is known to be a cause of birth defects and miscarriages. Good levels of selenium are also essential to maximise sperm formation. Blood selenium levels have been found to be lower in men with low sperm counts.





Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)



These essential fats have a profound effect on every system of the body, including the reproductive system and they are crucial for healthy hormone functioning. For men essential fatty acid supplementation is crucial because the semen is rich in prostaglandins which are produced from these fats. Men with poor sperm quality, abnormal sperm, poor motility or low count, have inadequate levels of these beneficial prostaglandins.







Vitamin E





Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant and has been shown to increase fertility when given to both men and women. Men going for IVF treatment with their partners have been given vitamin E, and fertilisation rates have, as a result, increased from 19 to 29 percent. It has been suggested that the antioxidant activity of vitamin E might make the sperm more fertile.





Vitamin C



Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, and studies show that vitamin C enhances sperm quality, protecting sperm and the DNA within it from damage. Some research has indicated that certain types of DNA damage in the sperm can make it difficult to conceive in the first place, or it can cause an increased risk of miscarriage if conception does take place. If DNA is damaged, there may be a chromosomal problem in the baby, should the pregnancy proceed. Whether or not DNA damage does have these effects has not been conclusively proven, but it's worth taking vitamin C and the other antioxidants as a precautionary measure.



Vitamin C also appears to keep the sperm from clumping together, making them more motile.



One study has shown that women taking the drug clomiphene to stimulate ovulation will have a better chance of ovulating if vitamin C is taken alongside the drug. Clomiphene does not always work in every woman, but the chances are often increased when vitamin C is supplemented.





L-Arginine



This is an amino acid found in many foods and the head of the sperm contains an exceptional amount of this nutrient, which is essential for sperm production. Supplementing with L-arginine can help to increase both the sperm count and quality.



Note: People who have herpes attacks (either cold sores or genital herpes) should not supplement with arginine because it stimulates the virus.





L-Carnitine



This amino acid is essential for normal functioning of sperm cells. According to research, it appears that the higher the levels of L-Carnitine in the sperm cells, the better the sperm count and motility.





Vitamin A



This vitamin needs to be mentioned because there is a lot of confusion about its use before and after pregnancy. Many health practitioners now advise that no vitamin A is taken during pregnancy. This advice is incorrect, and it can be dangerous to assume that any vitamin or other nutrient should be avoided during the gestational period. Vitamin A has important antioxidant properties, and the consequences of Vitamin A deficiency during pregnancy can be devastating. For one thing, vitamin A is essential for healthy eyes. Animals studies show that vitamin A deficiency during pregnancy has produced new-born animals with no eyes, eye defects, undescended testes and diaphragmatic hernias.



It is only when the vitamin A is in the form of retinol (in other words, the animal form of vitamin A) that there is a problem. It has been found that retinol can cause birth defects if taken in excess of 10,000iu a day. Beta-carotene, which is one of the vegetable forms of vitamin A, does not carry any risks.

Herbs





Herbal treatment is aimed at restoring hormone imbalances, and encouraging ovulation if it is not occurring. It will also give you the best possible chance of maintaining a pregnancy, should you conceive.



Agnus Castus (Vitex or Chaste tree berry)



This is the herb of choice for helping to restore hormone imbalance and increasing fertility. In one study 48 women diagnosed with infertility took agnus castus daily for three months, 7 of them became pregnant during that time and 25 of them regained normal progesterone levels.



Agnus castus is particularly helpful for those women who have a luteal phase defect (shortened second half to the cycle) or those with high prolactin levels, because it stimulates the proper functioning of the pituitary gland which controls the hormones.



Agnus castus works to restore hormonal balance and can be used where there are hormone deficits as well as excesses it:



Regulates periods

Restarts periods which have stopped

Helps with heavy bleeding

Increases the ratio of progesterone to oestrogen by balancing excess oestrogen.

Note:

Don't take any herbs while you are using drug treatments or going through assisted conception (such as IVF), unless prescribed by a qualified practitioner.



Caution



You should not take any of the above herbs if you are taking, The Pill, Fertillity drugs, HRT or any other hormonal treatment or other medication unless they are recommended by a registered, experienced practitioner.



I suggest that you follow this four-month plan and do not try to conceive within that time. Why? Because when you follow the plan, your fertility will begin to increase. Everything needs to be working at optimum level before you conceive, both to prevent a miscarriage, and to give you the best possible chance of having a healthy baby.

Susan and her partner were 30 and 31 respectively, and they'd been trying to have a baby for four years before coming to see me. They had been diagnosed with 'unexplained fertility' and had had four unsuccessful attempts at IUI. Susan had many problems with her periods: she had a regular cycle, but bled heavily with spotting and headaches before her period. At ovulation, her abdomen swelled up and she felt nauseous.



I asked them to arrange screening for infections and the tests came back positive to one infection, which was easily cleared up by antibiotics. Susan was deficient in a number of nutrients, including zinc, selenium, calcium and magnesium, and her partner had low zinc and high aluminium levels. I therefore recommended that he cut out tinned soft drinks (see page 00) and switch to an aluminium-free deodorant. Because I was concerned that the imbalance causing the problems with Susan's cycle could also be a factor in her inability to conceive, I also used a combination of balancing herbs, such as agnus castus, to alleviate Susan's spotting and heavy bleeding. Susan and her partner followed the four-month programme (outlined on page 00) and waited until their mineral levels were back to normal. Nine months from their first appointment day, they conceived, and, not surprisingly, had a baby another nine months later.



If you have been trying to conceive for six months



If you are under the age of 35 and have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for six months, follow the dietary and supplement suggestions given below for four months. At the end of this period, begin trying to conceive again. Give yourself six months before embarking on any fertility treatments or investigation by your doctor or a gynaecologist.



If you have been trying for six months and are over 35, follow the recommendations but visit your doctor and ask for tests to begin during that first four-month period. If you are given a diagnosis of unexplained infertility, then try for six months on your own before going for medical treatment.



If you have been trying to conceive for 12 months or more



If you are under the age of 35, follow the suggestions below for four months. Then try on your own for six months before embarking on fertility tests.



If you have been trying for six months and are over 35, follow the recommendations but visit your doctor and ask for tests to begin during that first four-month period.

Tests



There are a number of tests available that are extremely useful and are well worth considering. These tests can give you invaluable insights into understanding what is going on in your body at the moment and can tell you what vitamin and mineral deficiencies and heavy toxic metal excesses you may have. They can let you know what your general condition is and how well your digestive system is functioning and then explain what action you need to take to rectify any imbalances the results may reveal. The analysis of these results lets you know what supplements you need to take in order to bring your body back into balance and into optimum health. This is also designed to help prevent these problems from recurring in the future.

Mineral Analysis Test with Supplement and Nutritional Assessment Programme

This test measures the deficiency and excess levels of 7 different minerals and 5 heavy toxic metals that may be present in your body.

Female Hormone Test

Several samples are collected over one cycle. When analysed, the levels of your oestrogen and progesterone hormones are mapped for that month to determine whether they are in balance or not.

After three months you would then have a re-test in order to monitor your progress and adjust your supplement programme according to your new condition.
